Default Lost Eden

Hello,

I was wondering why there is no page for Lost Eden? Not for downloading - it is available for sale on GOG.com - but just for information? It seems to be a reasonably popular DOS game.

I've been able to find everything else I've searched for, and I like that you have links for games that are still available for sale, so overall this website is pretty impressive.

Short answer: no use to make the page without download. Moby will over-compete in this area anyway.

Slightly more elaborate: site is stagnating quite a long time, so _everything_ have quite a little chance, if it wasn't added already.

I think for this, it would take the following steps to make the game available for download on Abandonia:

• Abandonian willing to offer the game;
• Approval of the offer (by Updater / Mod / Admin) as long as it complies with the Abandonia Rules;
• Updater / Admin to upload to FTP;
• Other relevant steps (altough there are games available without reviews...).

As I've stated, the game is available for sale at GOG.com. I am only requesting an information page and a Buy Now link. I think if a game is available for sale (and hopefully at a reasonable price) then it is only fair to buy it.

also, an affiliate link to gog would - possibly - generate income for the capitalist guys who own the site.... but, well...

Whoops! Yes, you are absolutely right. At that time, I was in a hurry so that I read incorrectly.

Ugh! It seems that the words of the saying are quite true: “Haste makes waste”!
