Ascii Sector (2009)

Remaking Privateer... many have tried, quite a few have succeeded. Yet, Ascii Sector stands out even from the group of good ones. The selling point: The whole game uses the the ANSI (ironically, not actually ASCII) character set (in 16 colours) to create the graphical environment the player moves in. This is because the game takes place in another part of space: the Ascii Sector. Like the Gemini Sector found in the original Privateer, the Ascii Sector consists of four quadrants, numerous star systems and many planets. Just (obviously) not the same ones from the original game.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Development may be continuing at a snail's pace, since the author decided to actually do this for a living and has started to slowly divorce this game from the Wing Commander/Privateer fandom, while concentrating his efforts on a different, commercial project. Still, as it stands late-2017 it's a gem of a game as it is.
