What software from the past do you want brought back from the dead?

Tell us some software that, in an ideal world, you would like to see resurrected, given new life, and made successful.

90s game but excellent, Speed Freaks, a kind of Mario Kart style game but with a few cool differences. Really enjoyed it and wouldn’t really need too many changes to modernize it. Just some better textures and maybe increasing the player count.

Tower! By BAO Publishing (the same people who made Flight Simulator before Microsoft bought them). It was a air traffic control simulator. It was/is awesome. I played it under WINE many years ago. It had a 3D view, from the perspective of the tower, and voices of the pilots as they announced their routes.

People even figured out how to expand the game to have more airports and planes.

Here’s a page about it from 20(!) years ago. https://web.archive.org/web/20010227010312/http://www.ags.uci.edu:80/~tmheaney/SNA/Tower/tower.html
