Wing Commander: Privateer Remake for OS X
7:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A fan group of the original Wing Commander: Privateer has put together a new 3D remake of the game and released it over the weekend for Mac, Windows and Linux. The Privateer Remake is actually a mod based on the open source Vega Strike engine, and its authors have attempted to recreate the storyline of the original Privateer in full.

Here's a description from the Privateer Remake site:

Privateer gives you the freedom to carve your own path in the Wing Commander universe. Opportunity abounds in the Gemini Sector. Wedged between the unknown frontier and the Kilrathi Empire, Gemini is home to various competing factions with which you can choose to align yourself.
Upgrade your ship or trade it in to deal with the demands of a Privateer. Find your fortune by logging into the mission computer, or take your chances with seedy characters in bars. Meet up with Sandoval in New Detroit, tilt back a glass with Demetria in a Munchen bar in the Tingerhoff System. Make your way as a trader, traitor, bounty hunter, or pirate. Only you can imagine what you might encounter beyond the frontier. Happy privateering!
The original Privateer was released back in 1993 for DOS, so this could be the first time Mac fans have been able to take a crack at the title. For more information, or to begin the 185MB download, head over to the Privateer Remake site.
