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.
Some material in this story may not be suitable for children, especially the parts involving sex, which no one should know anything about until reaching the age of eighteen (twenty-one in certain states). The story is also unsuitable for censors, members of Moral Majority, and anyone else who thinks that sex is dirty rather then fun.
After such an intro I think you should know the game will be funny, but you probably wouldn’t want your parents to know that you let your younger sister read and memorize some of the parts by heart.
Well, let’s go back to 1984, when Infocom decided to make a text adventure based on one of the funniest books ever. It was Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Following up on its success they decided to make another humorous sci-fi game, but this time they packed it full with sex, thus the Leather Goddesses of Phobos was born in the distant 1986.
As this is a text based adventure you shouldn’t expect any graphics nor sounds. The main charm this game has lies within the descriptions. Well, they really make you feel like you’re a part of the story. So the term interactive fiction really does apply. It’s a sci-fi story with which you can interact. It does have a large enough vocabulary for you to experiment and have fun with, but if you simply wish to get from the beginning to the end, you should look at the walkthrough (in the extras).
To play this game you’ll need the WinFrotz program, which you can find under Services -> program section on our main site.
