SuperTuxKart is a completely free kart racing game featuring the mascots of many open source projects. STK itself is open source and students and hobbyists are encouraged to experiment with it. You can make your own karts and tracks in Blender and use them in game. There is an active community that is constantly making new additions and refinements to the game. STK has been actively developed for over 8 years by our team. If you are a C++ programmer, an artist, translator, musician, or sfx designer you can get involved in the project.
Version 0.8 was released last month. Download it and let us know what you think. Better yet, make something with STK and share it with the community. We are looking for programmers (we want to add wan multiplayer and AI to the arena battles), artists (better textures and models for karts), level designers, and bug testers!

Over a year after the 0.7.3 release, we are proud and excited to announce the release of SuperTuxKart 0.8! We have closed over 230 tickets, and made some significant changes: You can now enjoy a story mode with challenges against a stronger AI, and improved physics with better skidding and collisions. Tracks can be driven in reverse, and we have new music especially composed for SuperTuxKart.
Many many more changes were done, the main ones are:
We hope you will enjoy this brand new version!
Head over to Supertuxkart.sourceforge.net to download the game now! Windows and OSX binaries are already available, and Linux binaries should appear in the coming days as packagers make binaries for various distributions.
Finally, as always, don't forget that the forum and mailing list are more appropriate than blog comments for bug reports.
A big thanks to all the people who have contributed to SuperTuxKart, without whom this release would not have been possible (full list in the credits of the game).
And finally a few screenshots:
