Death Illustrated
 
Hello everybody, I waited for a certain game title to appear on either the abandonia or reloaded site archive, but it never became true. I now took the liberty to share this game title as something freeware/abandonware.

This game is titled, "Death Illustrated". Website is http://webpages.charter.net/crossen2798/di/ . You can obtain a copy at http://www.acid-play.com/getfile/540/11883 . The idea of this game wraps around "deathmatching inside a three dimensional comic book". Graphics are quite gothic/D&D and there's a map maker feature for single player campaigns.

Hopefully, this game gets archived at either abandonia or reloaded. This game also has old school metal compositions in the .it/.xm format (the trackers should know about this).

It seems to be freeware, so I think we can label this as 'approved'.

I do not think that this game is really abandonware because I cannot play this game on Dosbox (it's a Windows/Linux platform). I assume that abandonware games are game working on the Dosbox. Should this game be on the reloaded.org site?

Not necessarily; according to our rules:

Quote:

On Abandonia, a game is considered abandonware ...

1. If the game is NOT being sold from official sources.
Steam, GOG, Stardock and any other site that directly pays the publisher - NOT second hand sales (eBay, most of Amazon Marketplace, etc.)

2. If no-one will object to us hosting the game.
If any publisher or holder of copyrights to a particular game objects, it will be taken down.

3. If the game is no longer supported.
The abandonware games don't have to be created for DOS.

So what do I have to do to get 'Death Illustrated' onto the AbandoniaReloaded (reloaded.org) site? I tried emailing, but the response is nearly to nonexistent.
