KarBOOM is a fast-paced multiplayer-focused car combat game. Knock other players out the ring, or switch on some mutators to blow up the competition by their weak spots, play tag, or some good old-fashioned rock-paper-scissors on wheels. Download and play the game for free, and then let me know what you think. This game is in an open alpha state -- "alpha", in that it is not feature-complete; "open" in that anyone who wants to play any alpha version can, for free.
KarBOOM Open Alpha is now on Desura -- have updates downloaded automatically and play KarBOOM from the same client you play all your other indie games!

KarBOOM is on Desura
KarBOOM is still in Open Alpha, so expect more free updates. Having KarBOOM on Desura means you no longer have to update manually when I release a new version -- Desura will install the updates for you.
Open Alpha 0.3.5 is still on its way -- I've been slowed down somewhat by exams, but I'm nearly finished (the exams and the update). I have a few finishing touches to make on team play just so it all works as it should in offline and online play.
A few bugs have been squished and the UI has improved a little. Details will come with the announcement of the next update -- which, if you have the KarBOOM Alpha on Desura, will be updated automatically!
Indie of the Year Top 10?
That would be nice! Voting for IOTY Top 10 is still running for another day (at time of writing), so please support KarBOOM in the running. Either way, it's very exciting to have KarBOOM in the Top 100, and I really appreciate the constant support and feedback from the community (both here and on the KarBOOM forum).
