Default Request Rules & Important information - READ BEFORE POSTING HERE!!!

Welcome to Abandonia's Requests forum. In this section you can request for a game to be uploaded on Abandonia provided it's abandonware. What follows is a list of rules which will explain what constitutes "Abandonware" and what do we refer to as "protected" games.

This forum is not to be used for asking people to recommend games to you. Use Favorite Oldies and Newbies for that purpose.

BASIC RULES
  • Name your thread with the title of the game you wish to request.
  • Only request ONE game per topic.
  • The game archives should not exceed 150 MB. (Rips are allowed).
Note: The size limit is arbitrary. Updaters and Administrators can make exceptions to it as they consider appropriate.

AUTOMATICALLY REJECTED KINDS OF REQUESTS
  • Warez (ie recent games that are clearly not abandonware). Breaking this rule - especially when offering such game - can result in a temporary or permanent ban.
  • Any non-PC games
  • Freeware.
    Freeware belongs on our sister site Abandonia Reloaded. This only goes for games that were freeware from the very beginning - formerly commercial titles re-released as freeware are welcome on both sites.
  • Any game with explicit sexual content
  • Demos / trials / shareware. Exceptions to this have been made, but they're decided on by the staff - not by user request.
  • Games already on Abandonia but Protected or Sold. These games are not downloadable for a reason. If you find a game listed as protected when it's not (eg the copyright holder has left ESA), or as sold when the store linked to has ran out of copies, contact an admin.
  • Utilities
  • Generic requests (ie "I want more adventure games!"). This forum is for requesting specific games and/or series only.
