Dust Racing 2D is a simple 2D racing game that uses OpenGL and it’s written in Qt/C++.


Dust Racing 2D has a pretty simple game interface, but it offers an AI to race against, 2-players mode, several configuration options, a track editor (as a separate program), several tracks to race on. You will need to configure the controls before playing.


The game can be ran in fullscreen or windowed mode, and you can change settings like screen resolution, controls, enable or disable sound. This release fixes a few bugs and comes with several new features, including more realistic and dynamic car physics, transparent shadows, two-player game views (split mode), more merciful driving off-track.


Install Dust Racing 2D in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10

There is a PPA with packages for Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10 and the upcoming 15.04 as well. To install Dust Racing 1.8, type the following in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jussi-lind/dustrac
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dustrac

The binary will be installed as /opt/dustrac/dustrac-game, so run it using this path or create a symlink to it inside /usr/bin or somewhere in your PATH e.g.:

sudo ln -s /opt/dustrac/dustrac-game /usr/bin/dustrac
JL says:

After installing Dust Racing 2D from the PPA, it should be visible in the application menu despite the fact it installs under /opt.
