Racer Preview (Alpha) Released
2:35 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Over the weekend, Racer developer Ruud van Gaal released a preview of his realistic driving simulator for Mac OS X. Racer is currently in the alpha stages of development, so while the game may run fine for some, it may be unstable or completely unplayable for others.

Thanks to MacNN forum member "Developer", some persistent participants in IMG Chat, and lots pounding on the keyboard, we were able to put together a relatively hassle-free "application" (the game must still be launched from the Terminal). The archive contains two working cars (Nissan 350Z and Honda S2000) and two tracks. You can download additional cars and tracks from the Racer website, but some of them may not work yet. Detailed directions on how to play the game are also included in the archive (thanks Mike Patton).
