An open source racing game on the Mac!

This is more a great software than a tip, but I think it is worth mentioning. It is an open-source racing game called VDrift. It is entirely free and there is a Mac version. The game has a lot of different cars and tracks and the graphics are very good (from what I can tell, I am not a gamer). Even if you are not a gamer, it is fun once in a while and it also a great entertainment if kids visit sometimes. It lagged a bit on a MacBook, depending on which track. There was absolutely no problem on a Mac Pro with a x1900XT. I think it runs pretty smoothly on any recent Mac that has a graphic card (it will probably lag a bit on the MacBook and Mac Mini). You can download VDrift here on MacUpdate or here on the VDrift website.

Thanks for the tip. Anytime you see great software for the Mac, I want to know. A great software program, especially utilities, are always good to hear about. This looks like a nice game. Once again, thanks for letting us know.

Another great Game is "Redline"

You are kind of limited in the Demo but I ended up playing this game way more than Vdrift because of the network play

Wesnoth is a bit old fasioned now but still a very good turn based game. And it's free.
