Formula Retro

Formula Retro is an actively developed "Sega's Virtua Racing look-alike". I found it to be somewhat buggy (but stable) and I like the look.

Windows releases are available for download and here are GNU/Linux compile instructions, you will need to have irrlicht installed:

svn co https://formularetro.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/formularetro/trunk formularetro
cd formularetro
find . -exec sed -i 's|../irrlicht/include|/usr/include/irrlicht|g' {} \;
make
./dist/Debug/GNU-Linux-x86/formularetro

If you like the art style, you might want to give SimCar a go.

PS: I recorded a short video of the action and found out that the art license (CC-BY-SA 3.0 ES) is compatible with the international version of that license.

Whoah ! That's pretty nice !
I loved the Virtua Racing game even if it was a difficult game.

To compile under linux, the development packages for libmikmod must be installed too :)
