I noticed this on www.abandonwareblog.com

Quote:
Yesterday I came with the news of some games not being abandonware anymore, today I read something on the 3DRealms site:
  • We do not retain any copyright or control on the following titles: Star Trek Trivia, Star Trek: TNG Trivia, and Jumpman Lives! (which means we donít care what you do with these three games - we donít have anything to do with them anymore).
  • Commander Keen VI: Aliens Ate My Babysitter & Spear of Destiny have also been discontinued by their distributor (these are not nor ever were actual Apogee games, we only resold them), and are no longer available.
Seems like Commander Keen VI, Spear of Destiny, Jumpman Lives! and those Trivia games can be seen as abandonware from now on since theyíre not being sold anymore.

One of these days Iíll make two new pages (like the about page) where Iíll try to keep track of stuff like this. Something like an Oldwarez and Abandonware list.[/b]
Anyone shed any light on this?

Keen 6 has only just become abandonware? There are hundreds upon hundreds of fansites where you can download the full game! I used to have the ENTIRE Commander Keen collection, 1-6 and Keen Dreams, that I downloaded from various websites.
