You won’t find a headline like the one above on many other articles here at this site. Heck, you’ll be hard pressed to find a headline like that on many other sites (unless it’s reviewing Nude Nuns With Big Guns from Joseph Guzman), but that’s all part of the charm for Stainless Games’ upcoming Carmageddon: Max Damage.
The first 30 seconds of the near four-minute trailer focuses entirely on different types of nuns getting killed, butchered, chopped up, run over, and diced into pieces. The next 30 seconds is a collage of vehicular explosions and crashes. The 30 seconds after that is a compilation of cows getting crushed, splattered, ripped apart and turned into vehicle-made hamburger. You can check the video trailer out below.
The next segment is about weight loss… well, that’s if you count running fat people over and cutting them in half as a form of losing weight.
We get a compilation of penguins getting goosed by blades, spikes and other sharp weapons. Following that we see some scenes that look like they would have fit right in with the extreme sports craze of the late 1990s when Tony Hawk still had a career, only the only thing sticking the landing was the cars crushing the cyclists.
All of this vehicular carnage is topped off by classical tunes, creating a visually absurd connection between soothing classics and over-the-top gory violence. That’s Carmageddon for you.
The entire game centers around winning races using a vehicle as a weapon, as well as battling other players (or CPU opponents) while cutting every corner possible, taking every jump imaginable, and crushing every single bone under the weight of your spiked tires. It’s a ruthless, tongue-in-cheek combat racer that’s like a more cartoonish version of Death Race 2000.
The trailer rounds out by pimping pre-order bonuses for the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Carmageddon: Max Damage. You can look to get your hands on the game soon enough, and you can learn more by visiting the official Carmageddon website.
