Fan project Star Trek Adventures: Year One
has the unusual distinction of being doubly retro. Not only does it meticulously recreate the nearly 45-year-old Star Trek
series, it's also got an uncanny resemblance to an early '90s adventure game (think Quest for Glory
or, indeed, Interplay's Star Trek 25th Anniversary
). The act of playing forces one to simultaneously pine for two bygone eras, the effect of which is not unlike watching Fruit Brute
playing with a Teddy Ruxpin.
If you're unsure whether or not you can handle that level of nostalgia, there's a demo for the game on the project's official homepage
