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.

Dusk of the Gods is an action/adventure/RPG by Event Horizon Software which is set in Norse mythology. Those of you familiar with the latter will know about Ragnarok, the great battle at the end of time between the Aesir and Vanir gods, in which many of the most powerful gods of the good Aesir will be defeated at the hands of the evil Vanir, followed by the dawn of a new age of peace. The Ragnarok Prophecy was destined to be inevitable, but the Aesir gods will choose to try and prolong Ragnarok as long as possible and fight the Vanir right down to the last soldier, no matter how bleak the outlook.

The story of Dusk of the Gods places you in the role of one of the Einherjar, fallen mortals from the human world of Midgard sent to Valhalla, the capital of the Aesir gods. You were chosen by Odin the All-Father himself to find a way not to delay the start of Ragnarok, but instead to find the advantage needed to change fate and allow the Aesir gods to win the war. Of course, changing the future is no easy task, especially when the outcome has been foretold by prophets many times over, but the Aesir gods cling to any last hope of survival.

Dusk of the Gods allows you to choose a character or create your own. If you choose to make your own character, you decide how he or she would act at major points in their life by entering buildings placed on a map; choose to spend time worshipping a god and curry favor with him, fight in battle and expand your combat capabilities, or study magic to improve your knowledge of arcane lore. Each choice takes time in your character's life, and sitting back deciding what to do and trying to find a specific location on the world map to train your character wastes years of his life.

As you arrive in Valhalla, you have the opportunity to meet and speak with many of its inhabitants, including many of the better-known gods. Nearly every character you meet in the game has unique text; by speaking with gods, mortals, and other beings, you can learn more about Norse mythology and what troubles the gods. Much of what you are told relates to the game at hand, but often you can hear tales of the gods and their exploits. The tales are clearly gathered from many different sources of Norse mythology and other Scandinavian stories, thus eliminating accounts strictly based on one source, which often makes for a boring interpretation. Dusk of the Gods does not subject you to a fixed dialogue; instead, you can select underlined words that appear in conversations to find out more about that subject, and you can even type in your own responses, which is often necessary to continue the game.

Much of the game naturally involves fighting monsters, animals, and the Vanir and their allies. Dusk of the Gods has you move your character right up to an enemy to attack it with melee weapons; if you are not facing the enemy, you cannot hit it. When you attack with a weapon, you have to wait some time before attacking with it again (cool-down time depends on the weapon you use), so it can be frustrating not to be properly aligned and forced to wait and realign before attacking again while your enemies hack you to pieces. Of course, the enemies do not seem to have this problem when fighting you. Using missile weapons, such as bows, is even harder, as you have to judge where your enemy will move in addition to making sure you are properly aligned. Magic, which exists in the form of runes which are given to you by the gods or found elsewhere, has the same problems depending on the spell you use.

Your character's primary quest is to find a way to guarantee victory for the Aesir gods at Ragnarok, however you may meet people who are in need of a stout warrior to help them out. There are many quests you can learn about by speaking to various people, and while some help you with your main quest, you may win items that will aid you in the future. Unfortunately, Dusk of the Gods does not provide a list of quests you have been assigned or asked to complete, so you should write down quest information when it becomes available.

When you are slain, you are returned to Valhalla Palace. The only other penalty for dying is that you lose any quest items you may have been carrying, thus making easy escapes impossible; items like equipment, runes, and health items stay with you. The lack of an in-game map often makes finding your way back to where you died quite difficult, however.

Dusk of the Gods' graphics are heavily pixelated, yet the graphics illustrating various scenes in the game are really well done. The music ranges from really good to cutting-your-own-ears-off bad, and some tunes aren't very memorable.

All in all, the difficulty of combat may turn people away from the game, but it can be worth pushing on to continue the story, which is excellently presented and written in such a way that no prior knowledge of Norse mythology is needed.
