In my formative years, I possessed a great fondness for Wing Commander: Privateer. For those unfamiliar, it uses the usual Wing Commander engine but throws out the linear plot typical of the series. You can be a merchant, pirate, or… Well, just a merchant or a pirate, I guess.
Point is, the game is awesome. Thanks to Slashdot, I discovered that a reimplementation of the game has been released. It seems to use all the original art, but with a more modern engine underneath. The legal status of that is not clear to me, but I presume this goes beyond fair use. I’ve played it and it’s very, very faithful to the original.
There are versions for Windows, Linux, and Mac. If you’re looking for a good waste of time, try it out.
