Hey guys, I'm going to start a thread hosting selected Abandonware games.

You'll have difficulty running most Abandonware games on modern PCs so the program I still use for a lot of these games is DosBox.

The first game to be featured is the 1996 Sci Fi RPG, Albion from Blue Byte Software.







Download Albion


Stay tuned for more!

Master of Orion is like one of the best games ever. I think the 2nd one is better though.

Anvil of Dawn! Top shelf! I actually have that on my PC at the moment, but didn't play too much of it cause I was into Planescape pretty hard.

I'm sorry there isn't a big story behind it. My motivations are simple.
