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.

When little kids say “I want to be an astronaut”, “I want to be a firefighter!” and so on, no doubt that at least one of them will say “I wanna be a pirate!”.

Uncharted waters is truly an original game. You start as a small trader/adventurer/privateer, discover distant lands and get rich. The game gives you relative freedom as you can start as an english privateer, a cartographer from Holland, a prince adventurer from Portugal, a noble lady from Spain seeking revenge, a Turkish trader or a member of bankrupt family that is desperately trying to get out of debt. Basically you have three ways to go, as you could have guessed already: pirate, trader or adventurer.

Allthough careers say what you should focus on, they don’t prevent you from doing other things too. It’s just that if you do something else than, for example, explore distant lands as adventurer, you won’t achieve fame. Fame is simply achieved by doing what your career is about.

When you pack your things and get on the boat accompanied by your trusty first mate it’s all up to you. You can either trade in the mediterranean or sail to distant lands like America, Africa, or far east, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. You must buy food for the crew, face storms or pirates. There is a church which you can go to in the game, but it’s doubtful that it is good for anything. However, I suppose donating money and praying will keep storms away from you.

As you might have guessed already, exploration is the main focus of game. Adventurers get paid to explore, but it’s essential for privateers as well. The more distant the lands are, the weaker escorts for ships are. (Imagine chinese fighting off spanish fregate...) The more you explore, the more exotic goods you can sell for hefty profit to europeans, and it also prevents the game from becoming too dry. A good idea made by developers is a chart you can acess any time to get to know where you are.

Your mates will be important. You need a good navigator to be able to sail to port before you will be sinked by a storm, you need good a book keeper so that you know what are the most profitable places for trading and, naturally, a good first mate.

Enough of mechanics, how good is the game? I’d say it’s very good and it doesn’t get repetetive. Probably the only bad thing is the prize adventurers have to pay for their discoveries. It's bad to run out of money at cape of good hope, just to sail all the way back to europe to get money from your supporter so you have enough to buy food... of course they can only sell and buy goods, but that may seem simply too boring for some (like me).
