Revisiting an old classic

11:02

Last weekend, I clocked in quite a few hours playing an old classic: Frontier: Elite II. What inspired me to dust off a 20 year old game, was a series of Frontier tutorial videos I stumbled upon. While waiting for the upcoming Elite: Dangerous to be released, I'll probably spend copious amounts of time exploring the vastness of space.

If the idea of being a space trader or rogue assassin tickles your fancy, but you're the kind of person who prefers more advanced graphics, you should check out Pioneer. It's an open source remake of Frontier with a very nice looking facelift.

If you, like me, prefer the original, a good source of information can be found at the Frontierverse website.
