Kotaku Like

The good folks at Kotaku (Mike Fahey specificially) just reviewed Riptide GP, and gave the game an emphatic thumbs-up, naming it their Gaming App of the Day:

I had no idea the sort of juice these Tegra 2-powered devices could pump out. The age of console-quality Android gaming is upon us, and Riptide GP is one hell of a good start.

T-Mobile to show Riptide GP at E3 2011

T-Mobile will be showcasing Riptide GP (along with some other games you don't have to pay any attention to) in their booth at E3 2011.

From what we hear, their booth is going to be set up like a 50's diner, and you can take a load off and relax in a comfy booth while they ply you with smoothies to drink and games to play.  The booth is number 1447, and is near the center aisle, towards the back of South Hall.

If you're in town for E3, be sure to come by!  Ralf and I will be stopping in from time to time, particularly on Wednesday afternoon.

Critical reviews have been coming in this week, too, and the critics have plenty of nice things to say:

WOW! riptide GP is incredible....If you are at all into racing games, Riptide GP is a must-have.

We haven't been able to put it down.  If you are looking for a mobile game with that "wow factor" then look no further than this one.

The frame rate, details, and polish of this game are unlike anything this editor has ever seen on a game for a mobile device to date.  Riptide GP for Tegra platform truly is a console quality experience.


Not too shabby, right?  We're extremely happy with the reception the game's been getting, and the great comments and feedback sent in from players around the world.

Riptide GP featured at Google I/O

Vector Unit has been selected from hundreds of developer applicants to exhibit in the Sandbox area at Google I/O 2011.

The team will be on hand to demo our latest game, Riptide GP, the first console quality water racing game for mobile phones and tablets.  Riptide GP features superfast hydro jets racing through futuristic landscapes across a dynamic, ever changing surface of water.

We're super excited about the opportunity to exhibit at the show, and grateful to Google for giving us a chance to participate.

Come by the booth and visit, and check out the near-final version of Riptide GP!

Phandroid says Riptide GP is the best game at CTIA!

The good folks at Phandroid have called Riptide GP the best Android game at the International CTIA Wireless show in Orlando last week.

It’s so graphically rich and too much fun to put down. The physics in this game are looking great and it isn’t even ready for primetime yet. 

Nice!  The build he played didn't even have stunting in it yet.  And let me tell you, the stunting is fuuuuunnn.
