If you're reading this, you already know what you want. For those who just stumbled upon this by accident, just browse the forum and eventually you'll find resources to learn about this rather neat Mario Kart-esque "Realistic" R / C game with powerups.

For Linux users, things are a bit harder to set up, but fortunately dedicated users of this and other Re-Volt community forums had set everything else up to get this game running.

Game data and executable
You can grab the game itself from here, simply scroll down to the Downloads section; it's a little ways from the top of the page.

Else if you're lazy and impatient, simply click the links below (likely to become outdated);
Game data (must be extracted first!)

Package installation
For Debian (Sid) users, the following line will sort you out;
sudo apt install libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-2.0-0 libglew2.0 libopenal1 libmpg123-0

Debian Sid users have it easy, Users of Ubuntu and older Debian slightly-less so, The following is needed first, since that's what can be had from Ubuntu's repositories (including Xenial),and maybe from Debian's older repos:
sudo apt install libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-2.0-0 libopenal1 libmpg123-0

Then, grab from any mirror in the links below the version of libglew2.0 appropriate for your processor architecture; Allow gdebi to install it, or install with dpkg.
libglew2.0 64-bit: https://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/l ... 0/download
libglew2.0 32-bit: https://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/li ... 0/download
I occasionally make stuff at Re-Volt Live. Come and check it out some time.
