God of War and Twisted Metal developer David Jaffe has joined Pixelbionic in launching a Kickstarter project to fund a car combat game.

MotorGun is being worked on by several developers who also worked on Interstate '76. Jaffe joins the project to help with the game's creative development.

The game will focus on team-based multiplayer combat with players behind the wheels of armed and armoured automobiles. The modes currently planned include capture the flag, salvage and convoy related games.

Judging by the Kickstarter pitch, MotorGun will step away from Twisted Metal's rather arcade-like feel and will instead use real world car physics, adding in a 'deep set of customisation elements' featuring vehicle tech-trees.

'As a huge fan of the genre, I'm really looking forward to contributing to the game's vision and design goals,' said Jaffe.

The game will also be drawing inspiration from films including Mad Max and Death Race 2000 as well as its Twisted Metal and Interstate '76 heritage.

The game, developed for PC and Mac, is aiming to raise $650,000 and as of writing has raised $28,300 from 290 backers. As well as financial backing, Pixelbionic is also asking for community feedback on how the game is looking so far.

Beyond the $650,000 mark, the team is offering a series of stretch goals including single player campaigns, additional vehicles, upgrades and environments.
