In anticipation of the next patch release, we're proud to show off our new logo by Joe Sutton, one of our longstanding team members. It's an ambigram! Pretty tricky ;)

As for GRIP the game, this next update is going to be massive. Here's a quick list of things coming up:
  • Multiplayer!
  • A new car (Cygon Cyclone)
  • Brand new menu with garage and car customization (paint, rims). Also, input customization and plenty of settings options.
  • Improved physics! The car no longer gets jettisoned into space when it hits things. As always, physics are still WIP, but this is a considerable improvement
  • Improved tracks in terms of flow and visuals. New track coming soon!
  • Plenty of other stuff

You can see a quick video of the new car here: https://twitter.com/gripvideogame/status/765963578029596672

We think you'll love this update, as it really brings the game to whole new level of quality

Just a heads up that this update will first hit the private release crowd first (those who supported our website funding campaign), then once multiplayer functionality has been stress tested, we'll push it public (hopefully by end of this month)

Thanks for playing our game so far! We look forward to getting blasted by you in Multiplayer :)

Ok, so who wants to be bla*gets blasted into oblivion*

Anyway, possible info on what the tickrate for multiplayer will be? Hopefully at least 30Hz.

And seeing that the person thought you were a Rollcage fan from the beginning, along with other poor points (you can still get blasted by other folks, no matter how good you are and multiplayer costs are expensive in general), I think it's safe to say why that option was chosen. I mean not to discredit someone or anything, but the reasoning there is very weak and no actual arguments why this would've been a bad idea (especially in your situation) have been made.

:lol:

Ignoring whatever he seems to be on, this is great news. Any idea on an ETA? I'm super excited to get my hands on the Cyclone, and the garage thing is awesome. Totally ready to get destroyed online.

Also, possible point of concern - the new logo looks really cool, but it looks more like it says GRID than GRIP. I'm not sure how you might fix it, but GRIP definitely want the first thing I read there.

If you reduce the opening of both the G and the P (on the right for the G, on the left for the P - or just slightly for the P), you maintain the ambigram and **might** reinforce the impression you've got a P instead of a D.

It doesn't particularly bother me however, though I'd understand some people take a split second to make the difference

Maybe also move the G down and the P up a little bit. Right now every letter is in line except for the P

That logo would look pretty sick on a black or orange t-shirt

Hopefully the top speed of it will not be so low that it will make it completely obsolete on basically every track. Then again, performance balancing is still to come, so yeah xD

UUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Sorry, I've been away for ~2 months and only just picked up GRIP again (on my laptop for the moment, but back home in a few days. Gonna get mah fix sooo guuudddd)

For the multiplayer, aside from the concerns about tickrate, will it be P2P, and what sort of demands will it levy upon the host? Will there be dedicated server in the future? I'd be interested to know if dedicated servers are possible, and if they'll run on Linux servers?

Also, can we totally get some merch setup already? I would buy everything. Even if it's not meant for me, I would still buy it. And racing suits. You've GOT to make racing suits.

Not sure how the visuals on the tracks can be improved IMHO. Although, I've been AWOL for 2 months, so it all looks so fresh to me...

And that car looks so cute. I want one. Please?

Spoiler: show
I swear I'm becoming more rampant and unstable every day. I'm up to about 24% blood-caffeine levels at all times during the day, and it's not enough...
