Well, from what I can gather this game has already been released in Russia, most people say the game is pretty good. They announced an English version to but I cannot find any info on a release date. I can't even seem to find the games website.

I dunno. Running over zombies just doesn't have the same appeal to me.

Far as this being a Carmageddon, LOTS is missing. :thumbdwn:

Its missing the heavy duty vehicles ... but not bad generally.

It doesn't remind me of Carmageddon at all, but it looks like fun.

Carmageddon was 50% exploration, 25% slaughtering civilians, 20% crashing other drivers and 5% racing. This looks like a racing game with a couple zombies and some crashing.

Also, I didn't see any crazy power ups.

Still, it looks like it could be fun and it looks good for a low budget title. As long as it doesn't suck, this would be a perfect title to release on Steam. :thumbsup:

EDIT: Its also known as Clutch.

It reminds me of Carma 3, and that is NOT a good thing.

Agreed.

I'm interested in this game but its hard to be too excited about it after seeing how bad someone could screw up Carmageddon.

Doesn't look open ended like Carmageddon, I hate games that lead people along by the nostrils... even for a racing game... half the fun of Carmageddon was exploring, and jumping off buildings...

Or using the cheats to enable pinball mode and solid-granite car, and then lodge yourself into a train tunnel, derailing the train and sending it bouncing across the map, destroying all in its path.

Apparently this game has changed names yet again. Now its called GearGrinder.

Its also been pushed back to September. Hopefully they can polish it up by then. Targem's last game, Hard Truck: Apocalypse was pretty low budget and repetitive but had a decent premise. If they can improve on that this game could be pretty cool.

Really? Thought it was a different game? It appears that game is just about trucks only...

GearGrinder, previously known as Clutch, is a bone crash-ing action/arcade racing-game. Take full control of your power-ful truck, mounted with the most devastating weapons available, malicious mines and more nifty gadgets, and complete over 45 versatile and thrilling missions, leaving a trail of devastation wherever you go.

I think you're right.

There appears to be some confusion about what these games are called. :p

Armageddon Riders (made by Targem) was supposedly renamed to Clutch.

Clutch (made by Targem) was renamed to GearGrinder and appears to be a totally different game.

I have no idea whats going on, I'm just posting the news as I find it. :lol:

EDIT: Apparently Targem doesn't know they're making "Clutch" (Armageddon Riders\Armageddon Racers) either:

http://eng.targem.ru/site/games

What a mess. Whoever is making this game needs to get an English speaking PR rep, as does Targem, because no one outside of Russia knows what they're working on.

Clutch has been released on Steam:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/35310/

http://www.gfi.su/index1.php?langid=2&idt=1007&categ_id=&menu_id=&page=Past_action

I want to try it out but for $30 I don't want to be the guinea pig.

Here is some gameplay footage of Armageddon Riders (the Russian version):

It looks sort of open like Carmageddon, but its hard to get an idea of how much there is to actually do.

Any Carmageddon fans want to try this out and let us know how it is?
