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 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.

Unconstruction of Protector
... or was it unprotection of Constructor? :)

Apollogies to you, old games fans, for our recent low activity. We had some back-end troubles that are still present, but now we know how to handle them, at least :)

So, what's new? Recently Constructor was removed from GOG, since remake called Constructor HD will be released soon. Now all of you managerial fans can get it from our site, and perhaps get interested in new game as well.

Big thanks to bart70 for sharing this info with us.

To Dig is to Hunt
Something that some of you might remember from the old shareware DOS days, a little obscure and still lots of fun, thx to the effort of i_leeder who found the game and wrote the review, now on our site for all of you, here comes: Emerald Hunt.

Designed by Scott Powell back in the 1990, this Boulder Dash clone is one of those games that can keep you for hours. A definitive must for the fans of the genre.

HB AB No. 16!!!
Happy Birthday Abandonia!!! :)

It's been a while since we are around, making abandonware scene richer with our presence. Less efficient than few years ago, but we'll keep on with our work. Preserving and providing all those precious titles is a neverending quest :)

So, something rare and special for this occasion: the first version of Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? from 1986. We hope it is a real treat for all fans and collectors. In case you haven't checked, enhanced version is also on our site. Big thanks to gumpy for providing the material.

We wish you all a nice day of gaming :)

Abandoned Times Issue #3 is OUT!
Almost four years have passed since we published the second issue of Abandoned Times, and that seemed such an achievement! Now, against all odds, we present you a very wild, rabid THIRD issue of the magazine. The process of making it was plagued by many problems, including the lack of content and of an active editor / designer, but in the end we made it through. I hope you'll enjoy the read!

So what's new? We have two interviews, one with Matthew Stibbe, the founder of Intelligent Games, makers of Azrael's Tear among many other games, and another with Aidan Hughes, the main designer for ZPC (many thanks to Connor Eck, without whom these would be impossible). red_avatar has covered briefly the history of the PC and the Amiga, while The Fifth Horseman looks into the future, to find out if humanity needs a brain transplant. You will discover many other articles and reviews on these pages, several about old and popular classics such as Toonstruck, Cannon Fodder, and Discworld. However, there might be some surprises as well.

Issue #3 (August, 2015) has 57 pages; to enjoy the best quality right-click on the cover and select "save link as" to save a copy on your HDD and avoid using the online reader. Don't forget to leave your thoughts on the forum.

Letters make words
We have new educational game on our site from mid 90es: In Search of the Lost Words. Not without flaws, but charming nevertheless. Cup of cookies to Svajoklis93 and arete for contributing.

Another Secret Hidden in the Darkness
Jeff Kintz' shareware horror adventure game, The Dark Convergence has just gotten a review, courtesy of our member, FryFro.

With some weird monsters and a decent ending, the reviewer thinks this game is worth a try, despite an abundance of flaws. Dust off your crowbar, it's time to teach these horrors who is the boss.
