Crowdfunding the Latest Car Racer Game

Candella Software, one of the UK's leading developers and publishers of video games for multiple platforms, are looking for funds to develop their latest game. Cargasm HD will revisit the classic arcade car racing game format but will incorporate on line sharing and social networking for the modern day gamer. Candella Software have turned to crowdfunding with 8-bit Funding, a platform dedicated to supporting fund raising for new video games.

Based in Bedford, UK, the team of Candella Software are no strangers to successful game development.  Since it was founded in 1999, Candella Software has developed some of the industry's most successful games for PC, games consoles, and hand held devices such as Playstation, and Xbox. Some of Candella's popular titles include Juiced, Fast and the Furious; Tokyo Drift, and Pyroblazer

Cargasm HD blends classic racing with photorealisic graphics depicting real - world locations including San Francisco, London, Egypt, and even Yosemite National Park.  Players will be able to choose from an assortment of super cars and participate in numerous races. One of the most unusual features of the game is the Cargasm Harem. An assortment of women will cheer on the players encouraging them to race faster, and those that race the fastest can collect their female supporters for their own harem. Players can earn points along the way and depending on the number of points accrued, will even be awarded some interestingly named trophies. 

The concept of the game will also be designed to incorporate social networking. Players will be able to upload race statistics to sites like Facebook and Google +. They will also be able to provide and compare race achievements with their friends and even issue invites for multi-player sessions. This component will also enable the game to be played inside a browser.

Candella Software are aiming to raise $25,000 and have 55 days to reach their target. In return for funding, backers will receive an assortment of rewards including Executive Producer credits, exclusive game content, and input into development of the final product.
