Default Abandonia on Escapist!

We've been mentioned in the latest issue of The Escapist Magazine, in the article "The Vintage Game Preservation Society", along with HOTU, Abandoneer, The Abandonware Ring...etc.

It's nice to see that more and more people are interested in abandonware games, seeking the joys of their childhood. Considering, that each year more and more games become abandonware, sites like Abandonia will be the largest repositories of digital entertainment ever. And that's awesome.

Yes, that's awesome

Nice article, one of the few with positive comments about Abandonware...the author is prepared and well informed:

Quote:
Earlier this summer, when Valve's Steam service began offering the full X-COM series for download, Abandonia pulled all related downloads the day after Steam's went live.
We should add the link to our articles:

Why wouldn't they? Zero Punctuation is really not very funny. It gets old very quick.
