I sent out a mass email on the subject that hopefully got out to the old skool people from here. But anyhow if you didnt get my email......this is what it said.....





Hello everyone. If you have not heard already Game Mechanics LLC (formerly a different company called Auxiliary Power) has started a Kickstarter campaign to complete a NEW version of the old game DEMOLITION DERBY AND FIGURE 8. It's been 14 years since the original release, and if you are like me you have not had much of a chance to play the game due to new operating systems and or hardware issues over the past several years. But, I would like to encourage you to check out the new Kickstarter campaign and see if it is something you would like to contribute to so the derby community can have a new demolition derby game that, in all honesty, will most likely not happen if left to any large game producer that is more concerned about solely making a profit. With even a JR Team member contribution of $20 you will get to download the full game when it is competed provided the kickstarter goal is met. So if you have enjoyed this game in the past I think you might at least check out the features planned for the new game.

Also, I would like to add that even though in the past I have sold the original game through eSellerate on my web site, I am in no way profiting by promoting the possible new game. I am sorry if you feel this is spam, but I truly believe many of the people from the past and present on my forum really would like to know this information which is why I am sending the mass member email.

Thanks for you time.
Brian

Playable demo of the game. PRE PRE PRE ALPHA release.

This is the best thing on this forum in my time here.

Support the game, make it happen.

We in Demolition Derby community have 60 hours to go until Sunday, when the kickstarter for Demo Derby completes. I know many of you feel as I do and really want to see this real demolition derby game get the green light and become a reality. To make this game it's going to take orders and money. Some of us (like me) are contributing to the higher kickstart figure and I have noticed a number of people pledging in all the various categories after seeing the working demo (see below). I believe there is an even greater demand for this game and you can help by spreading the word. You can also help out by pre ordering your game now. Every bit added to the kickstarter is going to help make a case to greenlight this game. You know that this game will be a real derby game, much like DDF8 and we all know that this game is going to be a killer demolition derby game. The Pre Alpha version .001 was released to help bring attention to the kickstart.

As Demo Driver Homer619 put it....
"I loved it and its 1% completed"

I want to see the other 99% of this game get made. And if thats one 1%... WOW, I can't wait to see the rest...


Here are the details again below.....




Game Mechanics John Ardussi, made a single player demo version of the "Demo Derby" game for Windows. It is FREE. It is an early pre-pre-pre-alpha version to let people play it and see what the gameplay is like. I had no art help so I took much of the art from the original game. Everything will get better as we go. here is the link:
