If you haven’t gotten on the GRIP train yet, the developers have pushed out a video which shows why you might want to.
I wrote about the Kickstarter for GRIP, a spiritual successor to the intriguing but much under-appreciated combat arcade racer Rollcage, last week.
A fair few people have since jumped on board and it’s wonderful to see that there is still a huge amount of passion for this kind of game. But I can’t help but feel that the original videos, stills and gifs didn’t quite communicate the maniacal destruction that occurred in Rollcage — and GRIP.
The gifs were just a fraction too short and the cutaways of gameplay too frequent, you see. But thankfully, the developers have pushed out a new video which has longer sequences that properly communicates what it’s all about: blowing the track, other cars, yourself, up.
Looking at the GRIP vehicles is now making me think about Battlebots. I wonder why there hasn’t been more tie-in games for that.
