Vector Unit Games Coming to Windows Phone 8.1!

One of the most oft-repeated questions we get from fans is "When are your games coming to Windows Phone?"  Well guess what Windows Phone lovers, your time has come!

Over the next 2 months we'll be releasing not just one, not two, but THREE of our most popular games on Windows Phone 8.1.  Beach Buggy Racing, Riptide GP2, and Shine Runner will all come to the platform during the month of November.

But wait, there's more!  

Beach Buggy Racing and Shine Runner will also join Riptide GP2 in the regular Windows 8.1 App Store. So whether you're playing on a Windows phone, tablet, or desktop PC, Vector Unit's got you covered.

The exact release schedule is as follows:

11/3: Beach Buggy Racing – Phone & Windows
11/12: Riptide GP2 – Phone
11/28: Shine Runner – Phone & Windows

 

Oh and about that October thing...

We had previously reported that Riptide GP2 would be coming to Windows Phone the first week in October.  However, working closely with Microsoft we decided it would be better to hold Riptide GP2 a little longer so we can bring it along with our two other games in November.  Sorry for those of you who are disappointed at the delay, but we hope you agree it'll be worth the wait!
