Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a great way for us to connect with gamers, and allow you to help turn GRIP into the type of game you really want to play.

Our team can focus purely on development, getting you the best possible version of the game, and as soon as we make changes.

With every new version, we'll be taking valuable feedback from the community, of which we will then use moving forward.

In our forum there will continue to be polls for users to vote on, regarding all aspects of the game. These polls will give great general feedback from the players, in addition to the in-depth discussion on the rest of our forums (www.cagedelement.com/forum)

With your help, we look forward to creating the best possible version of GRIP there can be!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The "final" version of GRIP will be released sometime in 2017, though with the right support GRIP will never be final, as we hope to be adding new cars, tracks and possibly pick-ups throughout the game's life cycle.

The first version out of early access would be a complete version, or in other words, our vision of the full game as it's outlined in the game design document.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early access will not have many features at first. Our main goal early on, is perfecting GRIP's core gameplay. We want to make sure the game plays very, very well before we start adding the bulk of the content.

Once the vehicle physics, pick-ups, multiplayer functionality and AI are where we need them to be, we'll start to release new content that can change over time depending on feedback from the community.

For the full version of GRIP, we're wanting to have at least 12 cars (3 classes), 12 tracks (4 planets), 10 pick-ups, a career mode, arcade mode, arena mode (with arenas), carkour mode, elimination mode, multiplayer (online or local LAN and split-screen), mod tools for custom cars, and (depending on funding moving forward) a track editor so players can build their own courses.

This is our ideal version of the final game, but the actual end result could be different from our current vision.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“See the "About this game" section on the store page. It is updated regularly with a current feature list”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we include new content and features, but not by much. However, you will NOT have to pay any more money to receive the final release version, if you've already bought a version of the game in early access, regardless of the price at which you did.

All that said, the first version released outside of early access will not cost too much more than the game does now.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'd like the community to give feedback on all aspects of the game, whether it be vehicle physics, weapons, power-ups, cars, track designs or overall visuals.

You can give feedback either here in the Steam community, or in our official forum:

www.cagedelement.com/forum

We look forward to hearing from you!”

Grip MULTIPLAYER now on Private branch!

Surprise!

Don't forget to get on Discord to play with others: https://discord.gg/RKTJcNJ

This patch has huge changelist, of which I still need to make, but I'll have it in full for the public release version

The basics:

  • MULTIPLAYER!
  • NEW Car - Cygon Tempest (tank class)
  • NEW Track - Norvos Acrophobia
  • Better drifting!
  • Better physics in general
  • Improved tracks
  • improved FX
  • Other stuff!

MULTIPLAYER NOTES:
  • Game can crash, but it's quite rare (we hope)
  • The position and kill tracking on the HUD and scoreboard is a bit messed up
  • You'll see some jitter/stutter on the cars as we're still working on sync and local vehicle smoothing
  • other than that, it's pretty good!

Please post all bugs/issues feedback either here or in the Steam discussions, or our forum!

https://cagedelement.com/forum

Enjoy!

Ps. Private branch code is "SnarSn4r5n4r" ;)

EDIT:

Some discovered issues with Multiplayer in this private build:
-it likes to crash :/
-if one lobby is full, you're unable to find other lobbies
-"find next" doesnt seem to be working as intended
-Sometimes it will say you have an incorrect client version. It's lying
-You may get stuck in a network error loop. Restart the game

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The best idea is to coordinate a game with people on Discord and use JOIN GAME to manually get into a game and play. As right now finding doesn't seem to be working properly. This is why multiplayer is only on the private branch right now! :P

Cygon Tank Class + News on the next update



Hey everyone,

First off, apologies for the long delay between updates. The good news is, that there's plenty of reason behind this as the next public update will have the new CYGON TANK, a new RACETRACK, and MULTIPLAYER, along with plenty of other fixes and improvements to the game

Probably our biggest patch yet!

So, enjoy a pic of the WIP Cygon Tank to tide you over until the patch release ;)

EDIT: we're doing a Steam key giveaway on Twitter right now, so head on over if you want to get your friend a key!

About This Game

GRIP is bringing old-school style combat racing back with a bang. Inspired by the Rollcage games and developed by some of the original team, GRIP is a true tribute to the explosive fun had in a past gaming era.

Current features (as of v.1.1.7):

  • 5 vehicles (3 manufacturers), with paint job, rim and tire customization. Another car coming soon!
  • 6 Game modes: Classic Race, Ultimate Race (overall points), Elimination, Time Trial, Arena (Deathmatch) & Carkour (similar to scramble mode in RCS2)
  • 7 Racetracks, 2 Arenas, 15 Carkour courses. (Some levels are still WIP)
  • 4 Weapons (Homing missile, machine gun, mine, leader rocket). More weapons on the way!
  • 3 Power-ups (Shield, Turbo, EMP)
  • 12 Ingame music tracks (mostly Drum n Bass, but also trance and techno)
  • Play single player (against AI) or Split-screen with a friend
  • Public Online Multiplayer coming soon!

NOTE: Gamepad navigation in menus coming soon, apologies for the delay.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Intense Racing: Hit speeds of up to 1000 kmph, driving on floors, ceilings and walls. GRIP's car designs allow for driving on both sides, so flipping the car no longer means game over

  • Awesome Pick-ups: Use an array of power-ups and weapons to get the edge on your opponents. Ranging from missiles and guns to shields and turbos, we plan to have a wide array of exciting pick-ups to use

  • Exotic Planets: Race on a variety of planets, from hostile icy worlds to alien jungle to sprawling non-terrestrial cities. Use destruction as a tool to win (not yet implemented*), crashing your surroundings down on your opponents, or lose your tail by heading through an alternate track route

  • Badass Rides: Choose from a roster of armoured cars, manufactured by different companies from around the galaxy. Each car has different specs - some swift and agile, others brutish and heavily armoured. There's a killer car for every taste

  • Bangin' Tunes: Race to a thumping soundtrack from a variety of artists. Drum n Bass is our main kick
