I admittedly saw it coming as well but considering that Rollcage is one of my childhood gems I made myself be optimistic in the hopes that it would catch on and fly. I knew in the back of my mind that even if the Kickstarter failed the game would still be made.

Though it probably won't be as good, they'll probably have to shelve some of the music talent they signed up (I think a lot of their budget was towards the music).

Updating OP/thread and whatnot.

Hmm, pre-order site say this - $26.50 CAD (approx. $20 USD)

But wants to charge my Paypal $26. That not $20.

Anybody else getting over charged?

Emailed Chris this week with some westions. He got back to me today.

Will the authorities intervene in races??
1) In terms of expanded story features, we'd like to have some kind of military intervention that can randomly occur during a percentage of the races.  How often and how much of a presence they'd have would need to be tested extensively, but we think it would add a really cool extra element to the gameplay, having to fight off the "space cops" as you battle to finish the race in first.

There would no doubt be an option in the settings to turn this feature on or off, since racing purists may not like it.

Having this feature is not guaranteed though, since it's an additional feature outside the base game, and would need extra funding to see it developed properly.

Will this game feature set pieces that change the layout of the track like in Split/Second or will there just be debris you have to avoid when blowing up the environment?
2) Although the bridge explosion in the trailer only leads to rubble that needs to be dodged, we've got quite a few ideas for having alternate routes being created due to destruction.

Will YouTubers have to worry about copyright strikes when posting gameplay when there is background music playing?
3) This is something we'd need to speak to the artists about, but just to be safe, if you're going to record early access gameplay once the game is available, just mute the music unless we've released information about copyright.

Check the denomination on the amount. It should say $26 CAD; mine did, when I bought the $53 tier earlier, said $53 CAD on the price thing, which turned out to be about £27.

My bad, at the bottom in Paypal it does say CAD. I ended up paying $20.58 USD. :)

The first Build for GRIP got release Nov 30. I had forgotten I pre-ordered this game and just got new Build downloaded yesterday. No wheel support or remapping yet, so had to use the KB with the stock key assignments.

Here a video showing menus and the 2 available tracks:



GRIP will get release on Steam as an early access game sometime next year.

If you're tempted, pick it up. It's a really fun little game even if there's not much content yet.

Bear in mind though that currently the HUD doesn't scale correctly on non-16:9 displays and the only supported controllers are Xbox 360/Xbox One pads (you need x360ce to map other controllers for the moment). Support's gonna be added/fixed eventually, but right now supported input devices are barebones (as you'd expect from a very early build).



Oh, I have several clips in the EA release trailer too. ;)

And there will be wheel support some day or I would of had to pass on getting GRIP.

[NOT SOON] Driving wheel support? When??

Quote from: Chris_CE
Wheel support is planned.

Remapping keyboard is apparently not as easy as it sounds.  For some reason UE4 is making it hard, but it's planned.  Just not top priority right now as there are more pressing issues


But there always a chance the Devs could pull a a Stainless and renege on doing wheel support like what happen with Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Chris seem be a straightforward guy and I'm willing take a chance on these Devs.
