Wing Commander Privateer Gemini Gold

It's been a long time since we had a good game like this, and I'm happy to see that Privateer is being retooled with modern technology in mind. Privateer was an excellent mix of economics and spaceflight sims. These guys have been working for more than a year to recreate the experience, and I'm glad to have been pointed to it courtesy of Blue's News. It is open source and free to download, so get to it! Just be aware that it is still a work in progress, much like the Ur-Quan Lords remake of Star Control 2, so there's still some spit and polish missing, as well as a few bugs.
