Race is an overhead 3D car game for GNU/Linux.


Game Over

This game is no longer in development. It was a fun project for me and I learned plenty while doing it. What happened? Well, soon after the last release my interests started shifting away from game development and that spelled doom to this project. I hope you have enjoyed the game and keep doing so, but as far as I am conserned, there will be no more releases.

A big thank you to everybody who contributed and otherwise supported the development of Race.

race-0.9.0.tar.gz Sources.

Assistance compiling Race yourself is not provided on the mailinglist, as nobody has time for that, and the Race Makefiles aren't intended for the general public. Race releases often also only compile with certain CVS snapshots of necessary libraries. In other words: don't bother with the sources unless you know what you are doing.

The sources depend on:

  • ClanLib 0.7 CVS (last tested with CVS from 3.1.2003)
    • Hermes
    • libPNG & libJPEG
    • libz
    • Ogg Vorbis
  • GL, GLU
  • ODE v. 0.03
  • LibXML2
