Grip, the spiritual successor to Rollcage, takes to Kickstarter

PC and PS4 versions planned.

Grip, the Rollcage spiritual successor we reported on last month, has launched a Kickstarter.

Developer Caged Element asks for $657,000 Canadian dollars (around 322,000), and, if its crowdfunder is successful, will develop versions of the futuristic combat racer for both PC and PlayStation 4.

For Grip, Caged Element is channelling fondness for Rollcage, the 1999 Psygnosis-published PSone arcade racer.

The footage in the video, below, is the work of just two developers: Chris Mallinson and Robert Baker. Baker worked on the original Rollcage games at Attention to Detail. The pair have been working on a Grip prototype for the best part of 2015 in the hope Kickstarter money will fuel full development. Expect plenty of drum and bass.
