Three Cool 3D Car Racing Games for Linux

Filed under
Gaming

My 3 year old son is addicted to race cars, so I decided to look for some 3D racing games that can be played natively under Linux. Unfortunately, I only found quite a few. But since some of you are probably desperately searching for some decent racing games for your Linux box, I will share to you some of those games that I have discovered.

Here are three cool 3D car racing games that you can easily get and install on Linux:

TORCS
The Open Racing Car Simulator (TORCS) is considered as one of the best open source games available for Linux. Though not as graphically pleasing compared to some of today's top proprietary 3D racing games, TORCS has a respectable graphics and an impressive gameplay that features 50 different cars, 20 race tracks, and some 50 opponents to race against. You can also download additional tracks and cars, or even join online championship races like the ‘TORCS Driving Championship’ and ‘TORCS Racing Board’. Best of all, you don't have to spend a dime, or need a powerful graphics card and CPU to play TORCS.

  • The Changes So Far For The Linux 4.11 Kernel
    We are now through week one of two for the Linux 4.11 kernel merge window. I've already written a number of news posts this past week covering features I find interesting for Linux 4.11. If you are short on time and behind in your Phoronix reading, here's a quick overview of the material so far for this next major kernel bump.
  • Container-friendly Alpine Linux may get Java port
    A proposal floated this week on an OpenJDK mailing list calls for porting the JDK (Java Development Kit), including the Java Runtime Environment, Java compiler and APIs, to both the distribution and the musl C standard library, which is supported by Alpine Linux. The key focus here is musl; Java has previously been ported to the standard glibc library, which you can install in Alpine, but the standard Alpine release switched two years ago to musl because it’s much faster and more compact.

Jolla inks exclusive license to kick-start its Android alternative in China

Mobile OS maker Jolla, whose Sailfish platform remains one of the few smartphone alternatives in play these days, has signed an exclusive license to a Chinese consortium to develop a Sailfish-based OS for the country. Jolla says the Chinese consortium will be aiming to invest $250M in developing a Sailfish ecosystem for the country, though it’s not specifying exactly is backing the consortia at this point, nor over what timeframe the investment will happen — beyond saying one of its early investors, a local private equity investor Shan Li, will take a “leading role” in building it up. “There are very big players behind it,” Jolla chairman Antti Saarnio tells TechCrunch, speaking ahead of a press conference held to announce the news here at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona.
