As a new year has abandoned us, it is time to look back and see what more is considered abandoned in the new year.

Just as many of you are aware of, we here on Abandonia follows strict rules regarding what is and what is not considered abandonware. For games protected by ESA, age is an important factor, and for the first time we are delighted to share with you a list of games that are now considered to fall outside ESA's active protection period.

This will be a New Year's tradition from now on, and we hope that you are just as thrilled about this as we are. All in all Abandonia has, once again, become the proud hoster of 25 "new" games.



The following games are now considered abandonware:
  • 4-D Boxing (aka 4D Sports Boxing)
  • 7 Colors
  • Advantage Tennis

  • Albion

Sorry if this is a silly question, but is this status universal or is it particular to Abandonia because of its relationships with the companies and ESA or some other reason? Won't the companies or ESA get mad at ANY site whatsoever for offering downloads of these? (To any site they're not mad at yet, that is.)

PS: Fawfulhasfury, PM Kosta or Reup

Has anyone actually been able to download Monkey Island 1? Keeps giving me a 404 error.

Oh, and a happy new year to all!
