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.

Ch-ch-ch-changes!
Hello all you wonderful retro-lovelies! You may have noticed a few changes to our front page over the last little while. We've been taking steps to increase our communication with you via various means and as part of that you will now see Abandonia's twitter feed if you scroll a little down this page.

We hope that this will help increase communication between us and you, and even if you don't use Twitter, the feed is worth glancing over now and then as we post news-links and links to interesting gaming and retro related bits and pieces that don't appear anywhere else on site or on our network.

Please bear in mind that as always, our front page is a work in progress so let's work together to help make Abandonia the best retro-gaming hub that we can!

Can you hear those drums?
Those voodoo drums thump thump thudding in the night? Those drums can only mean one thing: Today we bring you Jane Jensen's 1993 opus, Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Fathers.

Although this game is currently being sold by Good Old Games (so we cannot provide you with the archive, but have happily pointed you in their direction on the game page) we have a wonderfully thorough review by our very own TotalAnarchy and you will find a plethora of related games which are available for your downloading pleasure via the game page. So turn the lights down low, steel yourself and enter the mysterious voodoo world of New Orleans!

With a strong gust of wind Abandonia has some new extras on the site. Some boxshots and a rulebook and data card for the game CyClones. Not the best known FPS ever this game still delivers the action packed fun you would expect and with these extras you can get even more in depth with it. What are you waiting for give them and the game a download and enjoy.

A big thanks to Geezer for scanning and giving us these wonderful extras.
