Rktcr coming soon to Linux, demo out now!

By - | Views: 12,735
Rktcr ("rocket car") is a physics-based action-platformer-turned-puzzle-platformer; that is, it's an action game meant to be played thoughtfully at much slower than real-time. Rktcr is played in a side-view world consisting of zones linked by portals. The goal of the game is to construct a journey that collects the 14 gems scattered throughout the world and returns to the start portal as quickly as possible. Players can pause, rewind, and slow time in order to carefully perfect each segment of their journey.

Rktcr Demo Zero - Desura

Looks like it could be an interesting title, one to watch!


Also Rktcr is on Greenlight and looking for votes, so you know the drill vote it up if you like it. Article taken from

Anybody else just get "Format not supported" on these Desura videos? Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit. Not much info on Google about this either. Weird.

I can see the video just fine on Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit. I think I'm gonna wait a bit longer before upgrading... :P

About the game, I got ahold of a demo some time ago (can't remember where from) and I rage quitted it after being unable to get a minimum semblance of control of the ship/rocket/whatever that is... I just guess I'm not patient enough for this game. :S:

Damn, you're right. It works fine on my 12.04 install (also 64-bit). So, an issue with 13.04 then... ah well.

I only see the "Format not supported" message on Chrome/Chromium.  In Firefox it always works fine for me.
