Car combat indie game hits Steam Greenlight

Car combat indie game KarBOOM, due for release on Desura, FireFlowerGames and ShinyLoot on October 29 for Windows, Mac & Linux, is now on Steam Greenlight.

After 3 years of part-time work on the game culminating in a four-month self-imposed crunch time, lone indie developer Jibb Smart is very excited to be putting the finishing touches on his debut title as he pitches the game to the Steam community on Greenlight.

Development has been rocky. Starting on the Windows-only GameStudio engine, Jibb began re-writing KarBOOM twice - once in a home-made engine and then finally in Unity - in order to support Mac & Linux.

The end is in sight, however, and as long as KarBOOM can find its niche - PC gamers set up for offline multiplayer - Jibb hopes to be able to continue to support KarBOOM as he begins his next project.
