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?”...

Hello everybody,
Like we said on the forums this summer, we decided to release all the source files to the public and close down the project. We don't have enough time and people to keep the project alive, not counting to big issues with the game engine to make a good kart game.
Mario Kart Source is now closed. Since the sources are free, someone can try to restart the project. It's all up to you. You can use our files for another project too, just put the MKS Team in your credits, that would be nice ;)

Mario Kart Source was a great thing for all of us. Some of us spent more than 7 years trying to make this project a reality. We did some nice work, not enough sadly, but we had some nice moments, and meeting people from all over the world was something great ! Some will say that it's a shame, other will tel us the "haha we told us you will fail !", we don't care about that, we learned lot of things and have fun working on this project :)
It's now time to end this adventure. Thanks to all who supported us, who believed in us, who donated so we can get our website domain, you were a great community ! THANKS A LOT !
You can find the packs on the download section.

Thanks again, and good luck for the next !
~The MKS Team

You guys had a nice run with the project. I'm sure I'll learn more than a few things looking over your source code. Thank you very much for sharing it.

So long as you all had fun with it, then it wasn't time wasted, I'm sure someone'll pick up the project sooner or later, and if not, maybe we'll see some other Mario mod with your assets. Great run, guys.

Aww that stinks. It's okay though, trying to do something like making a game is a lot of work. Thanks for releasing the source code too. That will be of use to a few people. Thanks for trying, guys!

Bummer, I was really looking forward to play this mod. I love Mario Kart. And whoever said "you will fail", they are just scared that you could of succeed, and I'm not being rude or mean just to let you know. But its no time waster if you enjoyed making (or at least trying) to this mod.

Why you dont do a kickstarter campaign?
Ask nintendo if you can use their IP and continue with development!
