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.

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.
