Riptide GP2 demo on NVIDIA's Project Shield

Here's a sweet video of Riptide GP2 running on Project Shield.  One thing the guy doesn't mention is that the whole game is being rendered with real time shadows, which you can see when the rider casts a shadow on the hydro jet during the stunts.  

Check it out!

Beach Buggy Blitz hits 10M on Android, time to give some stuff away!

10,000,000 is a big number.  Like, if you started counting from one right now and kept going til you hit 10,000,000, I'm pretty sure you would get bored or hungry and give up way before you got there.

As game designers, when we make a new game and release it to the wilds, we're hoping that somebody out there will like it.  If a few thousand people like it, that makes us feel good.  If a million people like it, we're like, "Woah!"  

Well today Beach Buggy Blitz was downloaded for the 10,000,000th time on Google Play.  We don't even know what to think about that, except to say, "Thanks!"

So by way of saying "Thanks!", we're going to give away some stuff!  Specifically, this stuff:

  • Grand Prize (5 Winners)
    Beach Buggy Blitz T Shirt* AND a code for 100K Coins in BBB
  • Awesome Prize (10 Winners)
    Code for 100K Coins in BBB
  • Super Prize (20 Winners)
    Code for 25K Coins in BBB
  • Booster Prize (40 Winners)
    Code for 10K Coins in BBB

Here's how to enter:

  1. If you haven't already, join the Vector Unit Fan Club.  It's easy, and it's awesome.
  2. Leave a comment on this post.  Say whatever you want.  Say something about Beach Buggy Blitz, about your favorite car, your craziest moment.  Say something about one of our other games, or about video games in general.  Just be nice to each other.

Comments must be posted before Wednesday 3/13 at 9am Pacific Time.  After that time we will randomly select the winners from the entrants, and notify them via email.  See below for more rules.

*Please note you must be a resident of the United States or Canada to get the T-Shirt!  

Official Rules:

  1. Competition is open to everyone, but only residents of the United States of Canada will get a T-Shirt.
  2. One entry per person.  Employees or family members of employees of Vector Unit are not permitted to enter.

The Sweet Taste of BlackBerry

Today Riptide GP splashes down on the BlackBerry World app store for BlackBerry 10.  

Last week we released Beach Buggy Blitz for BB10, and it's already become one of the most popular and highest-rated games in the BlackBerry World store.

We've been working closely with the team at BlackBerry to ensure that we squeeze every ounce of juice out of their powerful new BB10-based devices, and we're excited to be part of this new step in the BlackBerry legacy!

In addition to performance enhancements, our BlackBerry games also feature full Scoreloop integration, with support for Achievements, Leaderboards, and cloud storage.

You can find Riptide GP for BlackBerry here.

And Beach Buggy Blitz for BlackBerry here.

... and keep and eye out for Shine Runner, due in a few short weeks!

Vector Unit Teams Up with Nyko for Playpad Giveaway

Guess who's the Nyko Playpad Game of the Week this week? That's right, it's our very own Beach Buggy Blitz!

Over the last couple of years we've had a chance to sample a lot of different Bluetooth gamepads for mobile devices. Two of our very favorites are the Nyko Playpad and Playpad Pro. Both of these controllers are durable and well made, with great-feeling joysticks and buttons and long lasting batteries. Best of all they offer support for multiple standard formats, like iCade on iOS and the standard HID on Android (which means they'll work with ANY game that supports controller inputs on Android 3.0 or higher.)

About the Nyko Playpad

About the Nyko Playpad Pro

You can also find out more about the Playpad family and other Nyko products by following them on Twitter (@NykoTech) and Facebook (www.Facebook.com/NykoTech).

We’ll choose FOUR winners at random from the entries.  Two will win Playpads, and two will win Playpad Pros!
