Here's the only thing I could dig up for now though http://www.kia.com/eu/future/gt_ride/

Edit :
Available in these AppStores so far that I know of...

Spanish
French
German
Italian
Austrian

Edit: downloaded from the French store. And it's got potential if they keep at it, making it a more complete package/game, fix bugs etc. Right now it's nothing to get excited about exactly. Nice art/gfx. The track editor seems neat in that you build a track by moving your phone/device around to "draw" your map. But that's about all it really got going for it at this point...

Is this coming to the US? Maybe title should be changed to a soft launch.

I think it's just a marketing thing for Kia in these selected countries. From the looks of it, Kia is a Korean company establishing a European market with its own European car models, factories etc. I don't see anything about USA. Personally I don't think I've ever heard of Kia before.

They probably won't take this game further. But, someone should "borrow" that artwork, and the way you "draw" your tracks in the air with your device in the level editor (tweak that a bit further and it'll really be something...).

Tried and deleted. It's too bad too because it really had potential. I really dig the atmosphere. However, some things really render it unplayable. The biggest thing is the camera. The camera is changing views on its own and going all over the place making it very hard to drive. Second, the only controls, tilting, are not very responsive. The car auto accelerates, there is no acceleration or brake pedals. The framerate seems low or something even on my ipad air. I love the visual theme and the idea, but the execution of making this a playable and fun game\demo failed. This is really counter-productive to what I suspect their aim would be as I would not buy one of their cars based on the quality of the development of this game. It actually has prevented me from ever considering their cars if I were to ever to in the first place. If this is a reflection of the quality they put into things, this being incomplete, I would have to pass on their vehicles.
