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
 
Acclaim was formed in 1987 in Delaware, USA, by Gregory Fischbach, and their productions focused on licensed titles - games that were based on comics, TV series and movies.

They have been involved with some of the greatest game titles in the past, like the Mortal Kombat series and Turok. However, Acclaim suffered hard in 2000, as the sales for many games were disastrous - leading to Acclaim loosing a lot of licenses, and ultimately to their claim for bankruptcy on September 1, 2004.

While they were active, Acclaim held the rights for Iguana Entertainment, Sculptured Software and Valiant Comics. All of whom took the fall with Acclaim in 2004.

In 2005, however, Howard Marks (a former Activision executive) bought the rights for the Acclaim name and its logo. He later formed Acclaim Games in 2006, stating that "Acclaim Games will be the first US major brand to bring some of the most successful online games in the world, specifically designed to meet the community and multiplayer experience that the 36 million U.S. tweens and the 41 million European tweens want."

No-one is quite sure what "tweens" are...
