TrackMania Is Celebrating 10 Years With A Free Demo & Packs
To celebrate the tremendous creativity of the TrackMania community over the past 10 years, we are announcing today the TrackMania² Free Multiplayer Demo which you can download now.

As part of this, you will now be able to buy the Celebra10n TrackMania Complete Package[maniapla.net], which includes TrackMania² Stadium, Canyon, Valley and the original TrackMania United Forever for $29.99. Additionally, you can now purchase the Celebra10n TrackMania² Package, which includes all three TrackMania² titles for $19.99[maniapla.net].

Alongside these celebration packages, we announced[blog.maniaplanet.com] the 10th Anniversary Creative Competitions last week that includes track, car, and video creation contests. The winners of the contests will have their submissions presented at our celebratory LAN streaming event [aka LANniversary] on December 14, 2013. We invite you all to participate and celebrate the TrackMania community.

The Past 10 Years

Over the past 10 years, the TrackMania community has grown and evolved in many ways. Sites like Mania Exchange, Mania Park, and countless others host creation contests, competitions, and weekly events. They are also host to a hugemungous database of track creations, car models, and videos that represent just the tip of the iceberg of community creativity. The recently added Steam workshop has also been a great source of creative designs for a new audience of players. All of these have helped TrackMania grow in different and new ways over the past 10 years.

It is rare that a game lasts 10 years in this industry. Think about it, 10 years ago Ben Affleck was celebrating the success of acting in Gigli, YouTube definitely wasn’t a thing, and Matrix Revolutions unfortunately was a thing. It is because of the members of the TrackMania and ManiaPlanet community that keep this game thriving.

Community members like forum moderator and passionate track creator, eyebo, has been a TrackMania-c since 2006. Another ManiaPlanet moderator, tcq, has been highly involved in competitions since 2004. Mikey, a passionate community member has hosted a very popular server called Madhouse for years. Xymph and Slig have done amazing things for Dedimania. Peteypablo7 has been an extremely passionate leader on TrackMania Exchange. These community members and thousands of others have been built into the fabric of the TrackMania family.

Thank you all from the bottom of our fuel injected hearts. We hope you join us for the next 10 years.

If you cannot get the demo working check if you have done these things:
Trying the demo requires you to make a maniaplanet account and to log in with it. Choosing offline mode will not let you play anything on first gamelaunch. Once you are in the titleselection be sure to choose the demo and not the full game.

About the Demo:
Failed to start game (missing executable).

I tried validating files and there are no files missing, tried redownloading and the download takes less than 5 seconds to download. 0 bites download complete.

Needs fixing on your end, or steam's.

Can you please try again and tell us if you can download the demo?

Steam updated the game with 1gb.
However, this is a all I get on the main menu:

Note: I already own Canyon, can there be a conflict? (I can play Canyon just fine)

I'm thinking of buying the three pack, but wanted to try the demo first. It launches fine, but asks me to buy it. Is there really a free demo? How do I get it to work?

I just want to thank the developers for the three-pack, of which I bought two basically untested (but I did peruse the forums for opinions) :)

More of a casual TMN player here, it's been a while though. I used to play this against others via LAN or split screen if memory serves. A bit on the side of the hole community thing (even if I tried a bit online too), and great fun!

Also, I especially want to thank the developers for including their own 3D modes, and not be dependant of (how shall I put it?) any graphics card's manufacturers whims about not having a 3D compatible output device. And not least that you included Anaglyph mode (see my avatar lol) !! From time to time I enjoy gaming in anaglyph mode as I don't have a 3D TV (otherwise I wouldn't need those glasses ofc). Even if I don't usually use it much or for a prolonged time each time. But when I do it's DAMN FUN and APPRECIATED! Especially with these crazy tracks and jumps and all! :D

Another huge plus that comes to mind: The menues are quick, with no narratives one have to listen to each time!

I'm still stuck with the demo not working just like diegog5. Something is broken.

Downloaded the demo (Canyon).
No, I don't want an account -> play offline.
Click big "Canyon" screen.

"This title isn't available."
