A month ago, OMG! Ubuntu! posted an article about the beta version of SuperTuxKart that features a new graphics engine called Antarctica. The beta version also have user online accounts that not completed yet for online racing only for achievements and improved standard tracks. This video explains it all:
I played for maybe an hour and I hate to say that I don’t like the new version compared to the old one. It’s a game play thing rather the new the stuff or it’s graphically lagging on me, but the problem is that the game-play isn’t fast enough for me, even on the best kart. Or maybe I’m playing at the easiest level or lagging. Oh well, it’s still a sweet Linux game.
