SuperTuxKart .8 racing game for Linux

January 1, 2013

The new version of SuperTuxKart is available, and you can download it now. It’s a fun racing game that brings back memories of Mario Kart on Nintendo 64 (my favorite version of Mario Kart).

“SuperTuxKart is a Free 3d kart racing game; we want to make the game fun more than we want to make it realistic. You can play with up to 4 friends on one PC, racing against each other or just try to beat the computer (a network multiplayer feature is under development).

See the great lighthouse or drive through the sand and visit the pyramids. Race under water or in space, watching the stars passing by. Have some rest under the palms on the beach (watching the other karts overtaking you :) ). But don’t fall into the volcano!

You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix(s) , or try to beat the high score in Time Trials on your own.”

View the SuperTuxKart FAQ for more info and a history of the game.

Version .8 of SuperTuxKart
Here’s a video, features list and a screenshot.

I think it looks pretty good. I was always a fan of Mario Kart, so this kind of game really appeals to me. It’s something that you can play for a little while, when you have time. It fits the bill for a quick, casual game.

I’d like to see more games like this available for Linux, particularly high quality pinball games. Those are a ton of fun, and don’t require vast amounts of time to enjoy.
