Abandonware DOS title

Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support

Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games (both for DOS and Windows). I keep working on Abandonware DOS on a weekly basis adding games, features, etc. However, there are costs to sustain. If you wish to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.

I spend money to:

  • pay for hosting and server costs: Abandonware DOS uses two distinct hosting services: one hosts the site and the other hosts games and applications
  • get help from translators (being Italian, sometimes I need professional help)
  • pay third party services (SEO web apps, etc.)
A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated so far (a lot of people)!
