3D arcade racer with a variety of characters, tracks, and modes to play

Karts. Nitro. Action! SuperTuxKart is a 3D open-source arcade racer with a variety characters, tracks, and modes to play. Our aim is to create a game that is more fun than realistic, and provide an enjoyable experience for all ages.

In Story mode, you must face the evil Nolok, and defeat him in order to make the Mascot Kingdom safe once again! You can race by yourself against the computer, compete in several Grand Prix cups, or try to beat your fastest time in Time Trial mode.

You can also race or battle with up to eight friends on a single computer, play on a local network or play online with other players all over the world.

    Changes:
    * New upstream release.
    * Networking
    – Server bookmarks, by Benau
    * Graphics
    – Introduce render resolution scaling for the modern renderer, by QwertyChouskie and Deve. For users with limited GPU power, this allows one to get significant performance (FPS) gains at the cost of image quality. It can also allow additional graphics effects at the same performance. This is especially useful for users with high-resolution and high-DPI screens. The scaling only affects the 3D scene, the UI remains crisp at full-resolution.
    – Simplification through removal of unused deprecated graphical effects, by Samuncle
    – Many updates to texture-related code, by Benau
    – Auto-compute Level of Detail distances for 3D models set to use LOD depending on track complexity, by Samuncle. The geometry level parameter allows partial control over the drawing distances.
    – Improved screen space reflection, by QwertyChouskie
    * General
    – Switch port, by Mary
    – Gamepad force feedback support, by Mary

    * User Interface
    – Display the skin-appropriate iconset without having to restart, by Benau
    – Fix some issues with the options menu when used during a pause, by Benau
    – Add a confirmation dialog before closing the game through the “go back”
    key/button, by Benau
    – In the result screen, display the race position with a number with 10 karts or more, by Mrkubax
