Heh...

If the site hosts ex-commercial and now abandonware games, I don't see why it cannot host ex-commercial and now freeware (or going under other free licenses) games...

Of course widely available games that were never commercial can as well be removed - why waste abandonia bandwidth if you can find it in 5 seconds on google? But I wouldn't remove commercial titles just because authors released them as freeware and not simply stopped caring so that they could fall under abandonware category... IMO it's even better reason to keep them here.

Well, bojster got a point there... Teenagent was commercial at one point, now it's released as public domain... public domain is quite a bit more legal then abw too... and we have some public domain games around too...

I sure hope the whole "secret project" thing isn't just about removing games from the site. I've been itching to know what it is, and that would be quite a dissapointment.

Also, I'd like to motion that at least Beneath a Steel Sky isn't removed (if that was ever even considered). Who seconds that motion?

I don't think it's about removing games - just setting up another site for them. I just fail to see why the previously commercial ones couldn't be on Abandonia as well.

I wonder what that "sister site" (Kosta let those words slip in one PM to me recently - so I bet it's true) will be called.

Freelonia? LOL
