Dust Racing 2D (dustrac) is an open source, tile-based 2D racing game developed by Jussi Lind. The source code is licensed under GNU GPLv3.


The purpose of the game is to race against eleven challenging computer players on different race tracks. Finishing in TOP 6 will unlock a new race track. Only a small portion of the race track is visible on the scrolling screen. There's also an option for a split-screen two player game. Dust Racing 2D comes with a level editor that makes creating new race tracks easy.


Dust Racing 2D was inspired by Super Cars and Slicks ’n’ Slide. The game was built by Jussi Lind on Qt development framework and it uses OpenGL for graphics. Due to the source availability is possible to port the game to multiple operating systems.[1] The first version of the game was published in 2012. The game is under continued development as of February 2017.


Dust Racing 2D was selected in Christmas 2013 and in August 2015 as "HotPick" by Linux Format.[2][3] Dust Racing 2D was reviewed by Softpedia as being "All in all, Dust Racing 2D proved to be a fun video game, especially for nostalgics who want to relive their childhood." with 4 of 5 points.[1] Dust Racing 2D is provided by several freeware outlets which aggregated around 40,000 downloads.[4][5][6]
