Free and open source racer 'SuperTuxKart' hits the big 1.0 release

By - | Views: 14,445

A long time coming for sure, the free and open source racer SuperTuxKart has a big 1.0 release with LAN and online play enabled.

The game has a few different modes available including a normal race, time trial, soccer mode, battle mode and the newer Capture-The-Flag mode all of which can be played online.

They're not done yet though of course, they said it themselves that isn't not perfect and there are "improvements to be done, features to be added, and gameplay to be improved" but it's a massive step forward.

You can see their official release post here and find the downloads here.

Personally, I'm impressed it has come as far as it has recently and it's probably the best free Mario Kart clone to be found. It's actually pretty fun too, a good game to chill out with. Now this huge addition with networking is out of the way, it will be very interesting to see what they move onto doing next.

Quoting: PatolaSoccer mode? Is that something like a poor man's Rocket League?
Hoo boy that video is 3 years old, really shows how much this game has improved!

Quite literally I suppose, since in addition to being Free, it's gratis.

Work on the soccer mode was started in 2012, before Rocket League.

Now if you want the Rocket League experience, play Rocket League, I do so as well. Same with Mario Kart, if you want Mario Kart, get Mario Kart.

Are they still putting this on Steam? I remember that was the intention.

Wow, downloading. Funny thing how Soccer mode were done much before than Rocket League were released.

You can install it with Lutris, I recommend that. :)

How odd that they didn't include ingame sound effects during the gameplay footage? It just looks so much more dull without audio effects...
