Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

background details
 
Location: Redwood City, California, USA

When the company was founded by Trip Hawkins in 1991 in Redwood City , California, under the name SMSG, Inc. Later that year it was changed to The 3DO Company. Behind the company stood other big names like Time Warner and Electronic Arts.

The idea was to create a new type of CD-based video system, called 3DO, to compete with SEGA and Nintendo. Unfortunately, the whole thing collapsed, with high sales prices for the console and low quality in games. And when Playstation hit the market 3 years later, the 3DO dream had crushed to the ground.

In a strange turn of irony, The 3DO Company gave up on their console and, instead, started to publish games for the Playstation, as well as other game platform.

A true example of "If you can't beat them - Join them!".

They used the money they aquired from these sales to buy Cyclone Studios, Archetype Interactive and New World Computing.

The 3DO Company is most known for publishing the popular Heroes of Might & Magic series, as well as the Army Men series.

Sadly, in 2003, after a series of downfalls and lack of proper management, The 3DO Company filed for bankruptcy. Their assest were scattered and sold to Microsoft, Namco, Crave and Ubi Soft.
