Rktcr ("rocket car") is a physics-based action-platformer-turned-puzzle-platformer; that is, it's an action game meant to be played thoughtfully at much slower than real-time. Rktcr is played in a side-view world consisting of zones linked by portals. The goal of the game is to construct a journey that collects the 14 gems scattered throughout the world and returns to the start portal as quickly as possible. Players can pause, rewind, and slow time in order to carefully perfect each segment of their journey.

Demo doesn't run here (Linux, openSUSE): Requires too recent libstdc++, and if I install it in the desura extra libs directory, game start fails on the audio :
Can't init audio: Audio target 'pulse' not available
Yes, pulseaudio is installed, running and working
:-(

Rktcr's version of SDL doesn't support pulse audio.
So setting the environment variable SDL_AUDIODRIVER to "pulseaudio" (which appears to have been done on your system) will cause this failure.

(FWIW, I run Debian sid, and use recent libstdc++ because Rktcr requires c++11 features. Be glad you aren't on OSX 10.6, and just not supported at all.)

I thought desura was supposed to sort out these dependancy issues automatically? Surely there's some way the game can be packaged to include the bleeding-edge library, rather than sending me off hunting for a download of libstdc++ or installing a whole new gcc version? There is a version in desura/lib but it's the old one too.
