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.
"Hello, I am a caveman. It is not easy to live a long life nowadays, and because of that, people are forgotten quite quickly, which is the reason why I am writing this journal. I hope you will not get bored reading it!"
"There is not much to do here, so most of the time I am just sitting on a tree or sleeping. Sometimes I get hungry and I need to go find something to eat when that happens. I like to travel to find food as many interesting things happen during these times, but I do not like being hungry!"
"I have visited many, many places in my life: I have been in the mountains and in the forest, and I have even traveled to a distant land covered in snow and walked through a volcano. Do not go to a volcano kids, this is a really dangerous place and it is really hot inside there!"
"When my stomach is full, I am full of energy and I feel like I could beat up a really big dinosaur. When I feel like that I go to an arena, a place where I fight really BIG monsters for my life. Because of their size, it is not that easy and I need to use my brain to find their weak spot, but when I do, I hit them like a madman."
"The arena fights are not the only fights I have. On every journey I go on, I meet many dangerous creatures like bears and dinosaurs, but that is not all! In every place I've been there are different creatures: snakes in the jungle, penguins in a snowy area, and funny men inside a volcano - after hitting them their head goes inside their body. You do not know why I hit these animals? They could eat me, so I have to defend myself! I also do not like sharp plants and bushes - these hurt my feet. There are more things I dislike: monkeys and snowmen, as they are always hiding behind trees and throwing things at me."
"It is fun to walk inside caves as I can find food in almost every one. I do not know why other people leave their food inside without protection, but stealing it is an easy way to eat. If you notice a sign inside a cave, do not walk through another exit as it can take you to places you have already seen, and that is boring."
"Sometimes a scary person shows up. He disappears quickly - that is the most horrifying thing - but sometimes I manage to hit him before he does, and something always falls out of his pocket. These are useful things, like a hammer, or a thing that goes boom. I do not like that guy."
"Did I write something about music I like? There is a tune I have in my head and I hum it during my travels: lalalala lalalala. This melody is really nice. The places I visit are also very pretty. Now I think I am an artist as I like pretty places and good music. It is really fun to travel, hit dinosaurs, and collect food. I hope one day you will try it and see how good it is!"
