Featured keyword: cyberpunk

Cyberpunk was born in the 80s thanks to authors like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. What is cyberpunk? Well, take a grim vision of the future, mix it with drugs, hardcore informatics, artificial augumented humans and there you are. Gibson's masterpiece novel Neuromancer became a videogame, but it wasn't the only cyberpunk game to come out back in the day. Titles like Syndicate, Bloodnet, the point and click adventure DreamWeb are some of the many cyberpunk games published in the past.

Abandonware or not?

Where does the love for PC abandonware games comes from? Our childhood, perhaps. What's left of that age? What do we miss so much? The long afternoons spent walking in the worlds of Ultima or the hours passed impersonating Duke Nukem. Here we are now, slightly aged, eager to pay homage to all those wonderful DOS games.

After all, it's about passion and remembering.

The games listed on Abandonware DOS are no longer supported by their developers (as far as I know). If you find out that a game is still on sale or "protected", please let me know and I'll remove it from Abandonware DOS as soon as possible.
