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
 
THQ (short for Toy Headquarters) was founded in 1990 by Jack Friedman. As the name implies they planned to create and distribute products designed for children, including toys, board games and video games. To accomplish the latter, they acquired the video games division of Broderbund Software. In 1991, THQ merged with Trinity Acquisition Corporation (hence the official founding date, 1989).

The company further expanded its business with new sports/racing titles licensed from other studios or produced in-house, like MX vs ATV, WWE, WWF or UFC. Currently, THQ is one of the biggest publishers on the gaming scene with 11 studios across the globe (among them are Volition Inc, Big Huge Games and Relic Entertainment) and with games covering all the existing genres (Company of Heroes, Dawn of War 40,000 series - Strategy; Red Faction series - FPS; Titan Quest - Action RPG; MX vs ATV series and Juiced series - Racing; etc)
