Mario Kart Source aims to bring the fun and excitement of the Mario Kart series to the PC though the powerful Source engine used in Half Life 2. We hope to create the ultimate version of Mario Kart (MK) by combining all of the best aspects into one game. We're not simply recreating one version of MK, but using the best parts of each. We want to have all the traditional weapons, characters, and maps but also bring out new weapons that make game-play interesting. We're redesigning the maps so that they keep their appeal, but truly utilize the power of the source engine. We plan to have at least 16 different characters, all the ones you know and love as well as some others from the Super Mario World. We want this mod to reflect what you guys want in a Mario Kart game. Have some cool weapon ideas? What special characters do you want? What about maps? We want to know! And now the question on everybody's mind, a beta release. “When is it?” “Is it a closed beta?”...

Looks really nice, but some more running effects, like some blur, would be really nice and fix the game, and please, put mario there :D

Yeah I know, but congratulations for the physics, got really interesting, I really love kart races, and Mario Kart was one of the best video-games ever. Only loses for Top Gear. Epic game is Epic.

Great job! I'm not so much a Mario fan. I like it, but I'm not crazy about it. I prefer Gordon! Anyways, awesome job! Too bad the shadows don't respond so quickly, and are buggy. Either way, great job.

Shadows are like that because it's Source engine. We can't do anything for that.

Looks like there will be some very interesting and fun maps for it. Shame you didn't show us what happens when you stop on your side or upside down.

How is it a rip-off u idiot? The video is a demo of what can be done, maps will be similar to mario kart wii races, so it includes halpipes etc.

Wait. Didn't you have, like, all the animations done? The "release" videos had items, kart drivers, and textured maps

It was based on an old and obsolete code. The new code is much better. We'll have less lag problems later.
