{September 01, 2007}   Stormbaan Coureur

The name Stormbaan Coureur means “Assault Course Driver” in Dutch. It was previously called Sturmbahnfahrer as a joke, playing with the words in german, but some people considered that name offensive, and the author, Bram Stolk, kindly decided to change it.

Put a car into a course full of obstacles, and give the whole world a physically realist behaviour, and you have the basic design of this game. the game also has support for quad buffer stereo and passive stereo setups.

The game has only one track for practice and another one for competition right now, but once more tracks are developed, I’m pretty sure many people will stick to it.

The package for the game has entered Debian repositories today, so it’ll soon be in the mirrors, available for everyone. You can see the game in action in this MPEG movie. Impressive, isn’t it? :)

Cool game indeed. I’ve just seen the movie, and I am apt-getting it right now :)

Thanks for pointing it out!!



Bram says:

Thanks for packaging it!
I’ve seen the list of debian pacakages you maintain.
Phew… you are quite a contributor the de Debian project.
Keep up the good work!



Miry says:

Thanks to you for the game Bram, and thanks for all your efforts you’ve made to make it work properly in Debian! The merit is yours, not mine :)

The game is really great! :)
