Crashday will come out in the US but currently there is no definite distribution partner for America yet. We are in negotiations right now.
Atari does only release the game in Europe unfortunately :(

We keep you guys informed about any news.

Best regards,
Robert


WHAT THE HELL!?!?!?! :thumbdwn: :mad: :thumbdwn:

Might as well write this game off right now. It won't make it. No US pub, no game. Look at Cross Racing Championship and Xpand Rally (I would have put CRC and XR but everyone would have been like WTF are those). They had delayed releases in North America and both withered on the vine. Both are good games too.

When will devs realize that North America is a fairly large market and if you don't get a pub here, you're toast?

While the game didn't impress me much, I would like to see a US pub for you folks. :D

I know that around here publishers are not at all interested in what could be described as 'car racing games' and retailers will not stock them if offered.

Wow this sucks. They should consider doing it thru direct2drive for the US, until they find a publisher. Gogamer.com often offers reasonable priced "imports" as well.

eh, flatout wasnt released in north america till months after it was out in europe, and it was still pretty well recieved I thought.

Yeah, it's a little irritating. We don't get a lot of the racing games or if we do get them, it ends up being much later than everywhere else.

Or Steam
Its been a popular choice of smaller devs lately.. so possibly.
Indiegaming is coming big hehe..
I cant wait for Alien Swarm Infested, for FREE if you own HL2, pretty cheap if you dont (spose you pay for the engine without content)

For those who will get it imported:
http://www.crashday-game.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1384

One guy there says to have it shipped to the US it should be $44.49 + $9 shipping. $55 seems a bit much to me... especially since it wont help us out any. If lots of people in the US buy it from the UK then when it finally does come out over here, it wont sell as well and they might not even bother releasing them here later. Then again, if it doesnt sell for crap in the UK then it might not even make it to the US.

Id have it imported ASAP if it didnt cost so much... Im trying to save up for my PC upgrade.

I'm leaving on March 14th, will be back April 1st.

i still need to confirm price, but if anyone is interested, I can get few extra copies. But of course it will be DVD, serial (if any) and Manual, i Will not take boxes. Because there just won't any space in baggage.

This?
wersja językowa:
z polskimi napisami

I also see theres a split flag symbol and half is the british flag... I assume that means it has an english version? :)

EDIT: It should cost around $45 shipped from them, rather than $55 shipped from the other site.
