Daggerfall is a very nice game if you don't encounter any of the numerous bugs.
It is sadly not abandonware.

They just released Arena as freeware, so you'll have to wait a few years for Daggerfall I'm afraid.

I was so sad when I lost my copy of Daggerfall. I was looking for it a few days ago but couldn't find it. I actually almost got a job at Bethesda Softworks, I've been there a few times and it's only a few miles from my house. I might get one a little bit later. Anyway, yeah, I think Daggerfall should be free. I think it would also be REALLY cool if there was a Daggerfall editor like the one for Morrowind.

What exactly did you tell them?
I said that if Daggerfall is still for sale, where i could go to find a copy, because chipsandbits is out of stock, adn if it is no longer in production, where i could go to find a copy. I'll buy this game if i can find it... but they should really release it as abandonware... its just not fair otherwise...

Mind you, companies never release their products as abandonware. It's freeware they might release them as, but as far as abandonware is concerned, the companies' opinion about it is never asked.

However, in this case the game is abandoned, but the company doesn't like others offering it for download and asks them to remove it.

From Pete Hines at Bethesda Software.

You may be able to buy a copy on eBay or find it on sites like www.ugtz.com.
It's no longer for sale and we have no plans to distribute it for free over
the Net or release the source code.

I hope that helps.
Actually Pete, it doesn't. LOL

They are apparently redoing it. Thats why they took it off HoTU a while ago. I guess if you can download the original, you're less likely to buy the redone version... cheap S-O-B's LOL

Oh man was this game GREAT! Still is! I still have the original cd, case, box it came in, the manual, the first dungeon guide, EVERYTHING. I still love to play the game, even if it runs a bit choppy with Dosbox.
