Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support
Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games for DOS and Windows. However, there are costs to sustain. If you're wondering how to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.
I use the money to:
- pay domain and server costs
- keep working on the site, tracking bugs, adding features
- buy recent retro games to review (recent games WILL NEVER be available to download)
- get help from translators (being italian, sometimes I need professional help...)
To donate any amount (you choose) just click on the donate button and you'll be redirected to PayPal.
Features I'm working on
- adding manuals, walkthroughs, maps to download
- adding rare and popular DOS and Windows games to download
- adding screenshots and videos
- a "most popular" games chart
- rework of the "play DOS games in your browser" functionality
- a "collector's notes" section with information about collecting old games, box contents, feelies, etc.
- "order by" functionality in game lists
- overhaul of the Retro Remakes section
- overhaul of the company sections: developers, publishers, designers
- make Abandonware DOS nicer and faster on both desktop and mobile devices
- open screenshots in modal windows
- play DOS games in a browser
- overhaul of the home page: game of the week, featured keyword
- a video games awards section
