Be a Woodturner and Carve Shapes to Perfection in Fun Linux Game 'Black Belt Sorvi Hero'


Black Belt Sorvi Hero is an fun Linux game where you play as a Woodturner.

Your job is to carve a given shape out of wood with a chisel. The better you match the shape and more accurate job you do, the better score you will get. With earned score you can buy new faster and stronger chisels. Watch out for going too fast, as you might overheat your chisel or break the wood.

The game was open sourced few months back. Though the concept is not something we see often in a game, it grows on us slowly as we buy new stuff from Tux shop.

Check out the video:



If you are on 64 bit Linux, just download pre-compiled binary from here.

The following programs and libraries are required to compile the game:
