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.

Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter was a test, to see if Sierra could successfully launch a second quest series on the game market. Released the same year as King's Quest 3, it featured the anti-hero Roger Wilco. This guy was to become one of the biggest names in the adventure genre! Who would have guessed that this simple-minded, low-class janitor would achieve such a status?

Roger Wilco was aboard the spaceship Arcada, sleeping in a closet, when the Sariens attacked the ship. It's up to Roger to escape the ship alive - but this will require some quick-wittted thinking. Something he is not good at (mopping floors does not require a high IQ). It's up to you to help him survive and foil the plan of the Sariens in order to save everyone else.

Being released at the same time as KQ3, it is by far the best of the two! The mini-quests are not as difficult as those in KQ3 and you get warnings to help you avoid death. The graphics are also better (but still with the same number of colours) making the scenery in the game look astounding. SQ1 also incorporates the use of weird and hilarious humour, which would set the standards for all Space Quest games to come. The humour can be compared to that of Terry Pratchett (Discworld), but a closer fit would be Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).

In other words: This game is worth playing! A LOT!

Have fun.
