Sunspire Studios has given notice that the retail version of Tux Racer has been completed. The posting on the Sunspire website was made almost two months ago, on 2 October 2001, but it wasn’t brought to the public’s attention until this Slashdot story. Sunspire states that the retail version will contain low-detail options for less powerful computers and a split-screen mode for head-to-head competition. However, Sunspire still requires a publisher as well as funding for direct online sales.
The retail version of Tux Racer will contain Windows, Linux, and MacOS binaries.
