The excellent news is that the circulate of video games that can make the most of Flip Grip (or vice versa) hasn’t slowed one bit since we Kickstarter the Flip Grip, and I’ve a sense we’ll proceed seeing Flip Grip-friendly video games all through Change’s lifetime.

And that, pals, is why this record exists. 

We’ll be monitoring all identified Change video games that work with Flip Grip right here. That features accessible video games and upcoming releases alike.
