PlanetPenguin Racer (or ppracer for short) is the successor of the famous tuxracer (which isn't developed any more). It's a fast arcade game, where you steer tux, the Linux penguin, down a snowy hill, trying to collect herrings and avoiding rocks and similar, which will slow you down.

It's written in C, using TCL and libsdl. All but one files are released under the terms of the GPL, the remaining file (src/quadtree.cpp) has a "do what ever you want" license. So it's GPL compatible and DFSG-free.
