Trigger Rally is "a fast-paced single-player racing game for Linux" and now, thanks to WebGL, Three.JS, and Jasmine Kent, everyone can play in a browser.

This game is set in a crater on Mars, after terraforming. Due to a rubber shortage in Elysium Planitia, your vehicle's tires are made of polytetrafluoroethylene.

Man. It is a good thing for me and everyone else that I don't drive.

So is Vermont really this lax about their driving tests? They apparently gave QWOP man a license..

This looks exactly like what it sounds like.

To make it more fun, try changing the camera-settig with "c" and start performing eskimo-rolls (and more).

Addendum: Hit F11 as well.

What's the deal with the twirling mobius strip-like green thingy?
posted by lampshade at 10:36 AM on March 2, 2012


The green swirls are "checkpoints". If you complete all the checkpoints the timer stops counting up and you get a final time. You then restart the trial by entering the first checkpoint again.

The cars are made of out rubber, their tires are made out of springs...

It's a tech demo - there's no game here yet.

Are the leaves supposed to be floating? Or do other people see some tree trunks that I do not?

Floaty driving game is floaty.

After playing that for a couple of minutes, all I can say is, I'm glad I don't have to control my actual car with a keyboard.
