Do you enjoy vehicles, combat, or vehicle combat where you create a vehicle from the chassis up and take it onto the battlefield to compete against other's equally horrible creations? 

What about in a video game?

Scraps - the vehicle combat game from New Zealand developer Moment Studio - recently took a break from blowing things up to launch its Kickstarter funding project on November 23rd. During the following 25 days the project is looking to raise $23,000NZD to help fund the game up to its initial release.

Moment Studio is really a shallow front for solo developer Bill Borman, who has been developing the game full-time for the past year. The vehicle building aspect of the game is "pretty much solid", and an early builder demo is already available for download, but multiplayer gameplay is still several months away.

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding system where members of the public can individually contribute paltry funds in the hope that the total will actually add to something significant. Scraps offers an incentive to contribute $20NZD or more - a copy of the Alpha release of the game, which when ready in mid-2014 will offer multiplayer melee gameplay and a basic set of vehicle parts. An alpha purchase also means cheap access to the final release, which will contain more parts, chassis types, and additional game modes, as well as single-player against AI.

Scraps is coming to all the coolest PC platforms: Windows, Mac, and Linux.
