Remake Goes Gold Update ID

Macworld UK have put the Apple port of Gemini Gold on their cover CD. UK Mac enthusiasts are saved a hefty download.
Our second CD...
...has the full version of Privateer Gemini Gold 1.0. Back in 1993, Privateer was released as part of the Wing Commander series and became a great success in the gaming industry. Over 10 years later a small group of privateer enthusiasts has reintroduced the game with a new graphic engine and real 3D spaceflight. Take your chance and become a pirate, merchant or hunter - then upgrade your ship and keep coming back for that Wing Commander experience.
