SuperTuxKart used in Google Cloud Game Server demo

Mark Mandel from Google Cloud Platform ran a demonstration at Google Games Dev Summit of a way to globally run game servers and chose STK as the game to use.

'supertuxkart' appears in the code @ 9:10
First mention of STK @ 9:48: "[...] the game that we're actually gonna be using is called SuperTuxKart. It's a really fun multiplayer racing game that some people may already be familiar with because it's been around for a while. It's really cute and adorable."
Runs the game @ 14:18, adds 3 AI bots and starts a test game to demonstrate the server.

(I personally am not a fan of many parts of the Google/Alphabet company, but I can appreciate the good things being done there as well.)

STK in Agones was being worked on some days ago in IRC, so this doesn't surprise me :)

I even did my part, however small: https://github.com/googleforgames/agones/pull/1410 ;)
Not an official dev, but a huge fan of STK!
