Earlier this month, the firm announced the title had “reached and topped” the developer’s original campaign funding goal through pre-orders on the service. The exact figures weren’t announced until today.

“This is an amazing success for a racing game, especially considering our tough road to the success,” a Bugbear statement said per MCV. “Along the way we pitched the game to numerous publishers in the hopes that the game would eventually get released. Unfortunately we receive the same response all over again – there were no market for a game like ours.

“Thanks to our awesome fans, we finally have a chance to make the game we always intended and shape it into a definite demolition racing experience the players have been yearning for years.”

Next Car Game is in development for PC with console versions possible later if enough money is raised.
