Fans of the classic computer game Ultima V (from the c64/Apple][e era) have re-created the game, using modern game tech, thanks to the Dungeon Siege engine. The Ultima re-make, called Lazarus, is free for download, runs on Windows or Mac, but needs the Dungeon Siege engine (commercial software) to run. More details at the Ultima5 Lazarus site. Update: URL fixed.
Ultima V Lives!

…would also be a good engine to do stuff like this
If like me you LOVE this kind of thing, check out this site:
Retro Remakes ( http://www.remakes.org/ ) and the 2 best remakes around from the 8bit era : “Kings Quest VGA” ( http://www.agdinteractive.com/ ) and a “Head Over Heels” remake with great graphics that runs on Windows,Linux,OSX and Beos (!) ( http://retrospec.sgn.net/games/hoh/index.html )
..more something for games.slashdot.org than OSNews, right?
EDIT: now that I’ve made the comment I already regret it for being overly nitpicky :-\
