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.

Happy New Year!
Thanks to the efforts of the mighty eclipsespilce, we can show you what they wrapped videogames (actually, Twilight: 2000) in back in the old days. There are also pictures of the papers included in the original jewel case, so if you've always wondered what a Technical Supplement looks like, then you've come to the best place!

An extra Hero has arrived!
With the help of Fleabass666 we now have the Sierra control manual for Quest for Glory 1: So You Want to be a Hero VGA (wow that is a mouth full isn't it) on our site now. With the details on how the new point and click adventure games are played this manual is a must for people looking to have every bit that came with this game when it first came out.

Don't forget if you have anything that came with a game we are happy to feature it on site, you even get some Pieces of Eight for your hard work. Just make a thread here and tell us about what you have that we just might want!

Just when you thought it was safe to hide in the cleaning cupboard...
Those wonderful folks over at Infamous Adventures have done it again and released their glorious remake of Space Quest II - Vohaul's Revenge. They've not only updated the game's graphics but have included over 4000 lines of spoken dialogue, original music and a point and click interface! After the wonderful job they did previously with their remake of King's Quest III - To Heir Is Human I can't recommend this enough, download this now and relive the adventures of everyone's favourite janitor, Roger Wilco. Just don't forget to bring your mop!

Now if that's not enough janitorial glory for you, don't forget that Abandonia has reviews of each game from installment one through to five and a whole host of downloadable extras available here. You can also buy the entire collection from our friends over at Good Old Games, here and here.

Do you have what it takes to enter the Death Gate?

Enjoy the background music that came with the immersive adventure gameplay in the fantasy world created by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman (yeah, they're the authors of Dragonlance novels as well), brought to your computer screens by Legend Entertainment.

And if you've never played Death Gate before, why don't you download it from us?

Mountain Mysteries...
We have an old timer here for you today which I know many of you are going to remember. The Alpine Encounter is now up on site and ready for you to enjoy! You'd better get your thinking caps on because you only have 12 hours to stop a nefarious world domination scheme...

Many thanks to Marko River and DarthHelmet86 for helping us get this game to you.

Are you looking for some company?

Now you can have it, in the form of the original soundtrack of Companions of Xanth - the game which was infamous for it's twisted storyline (and a few other things you should see yourself). It was about a bet between two friends to see whether they could hate the best videogame ever which is... Companions of Xanth.

Speaking of bets, why don't you download it and see if you can hate it? Let us know what it was like in the forums.

Help for the lost is here!
Have you ever played Veil of Darkness and been lost? Couldn't find the important items? Missed out on some of the weapons perhaps? If any of these is true for you then do we have the extra for you today. Thanks to the mighty Paco we have the entire game mapped out and every item and secret door marked. Even if you have beaten the game give the maps a download and have a look and see if you missed something.

The weekly poll, has it been a week already?
So the last poll has closed and we have a tie! People just could not decide between Ultima Underworld 1,2 and Eye of the Beholder 1,2,3 so they both win the best First Person RPG on our site. And now it is time for the new poll, this time handed to us by Tracker.

Which one of the games listed would you most like to see as a movie? With the promise that the movie would actually stick to source material and be good mind you. Remember click on the title to get linked right to the poll and have a browse of the rest of our forums while you are there. If you aren't a member sign up now and don't let this poll pass you by.
