There are many old games that I would gladly purchase at the $5 price. And I believe there are many like me. So I hope these will be added over time.

Not sure if GOG will ever put true abandonware on their site, but there's a ton of DOS games that were freed by their creators, like Ken's Labyrinth, that they should put on here.

Abandonware should be looked at for archiving purposes and providing this generation access to games that would have been forgotten about.

Abandonware is not something that actually exists, gamers like to think that just because a game is old that there is no legal entitlement involved well i can tell you the only time a game is FREE is because the original creators have allowed it to be FREE, sorry guys.

Well...not just abandonware, but the ones that are old but good, and still have someone willing to sell the rights to.. <br /> Anyways..more older games in general, abandoned or not...and that doesn't mean all old DOS games, but like a lot of stuff from the last 10 years or so..

What does "more abandonware" even mean? <br /> <br /> The abandonware term has no legal basis under current laws and GOG is bound to follow the law so they cannot start offering games for which copyright owners have not given/sold them permission. <br /> <br /> Please use a better term, "relicensed", "released into the public domain", etc. <br />

While this sounds good, I don't see a way for GOG to make money on this kind of thing (especially considering they'll probably have to work on it to make it work on current computers). Legally, I doubt they could sell them without permission from the rights holder. Again, if they offer it for free, then they lose money.

To my understanding, the B.A.T. series might be abandonware; Ubisoft was involve back in the day, but I don't know if they are anymore or how deeply in love they are of the franchise if they are. <br /> <br /> Anyways... That's two excellent point'n click adventures with some lightweight RPG flare from the early 90's.

Been reading about commercial games being re-released for free and this is what I have learned: <br /> Some commercial games that have been re-released for free are only licensed to be done from certain sites or under certain conditions(i.e. bundling of Ads &/or spyware or "limited time"). Some have the license & code of the engine "open sourced", but don't change the license of the game data/content In order to allow their game be compatible with new or different systems, but still keep the rights to the game.And even if both engine and game data are released freely doesn't mean you can just make it available as some "open source" licenses have restrictions about commercial use or their being packaged with non-free software. <br /> Also, if the rights to the title are in question (such as owned by defunct company) or the rights owner either cannot be found or will not cooperate, that will kill any chance of a release. <br /> Ideally, you would want a game that has had it's game data released in a non-commercially restricted open source licence (i.e. GPL) by the current verifiable rights holder, has had the work done so that it's playable on modern systems (either thru reimplementation or emulation), and is a game of good quality so as to provide value to your service. <br /> Getting all those to happen requires a lot of resources,effort,cooperation, and luck. Below is a good place to start for possible titles and different licenses. <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_commercial_video_games_released_as_freeware" class="light_un" target="_blank"><br /> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_commercial_video_games_released_as_freeware</a>

@Gaerzi: While it is true that the status "Abandonware" gives no one (also not gog) the legal right for re-distribution, abandonware is not classified by a assumed legitimation for re-distribution. Wikipedia gives a definition, where "abandonware" is classified by the non-availability and missing support by the original developer, as cultural problem. And by that definition gog can bring some games out of the abandonware status, after finding and talking with the IP holders.

No game is "officially abandonware" since abandonware is not a legal concept. (Closest would be "orphaned work", for when the right holder does not exist anymore; or public domain, which will not concern video games for a long while since copyright lasts for 70 years after author's death, 95 years after publication, or 120 years after creation, whichever comes first. (The "author's death" close does not apply when the rights are owned by a company rather than a person, by the way.) This means that, for example, "E.T. the Extraterrestrial", created for the Atari 2600 in 1986, will be public domain in... year 2077. It's very probable that most of us will be dead before the first PC games fall in the public domain. Provided there aren't any further copyright length extensions in between due to lobbying (cf. Mickey Mouse/Sonny Bono Act). Of course, it is possible (and it has happened) that a rightholder may decide to put a game in the public domain before terms expiration. And without going up to public domain, it's also possible that they allow free downloads and even in some cases free redistribution. But that doesn't make it abandonware, just freeware.

Abandonware is piracy. Whether you like it or not, that's irrelevant. GOG cannot add abandonware without the copyright holder's permission. Saying "This game is old, so it should be free!" is wishful thinking, nothing more. I mean, take music for example. It's still illegal to download Johnny B. Goode without paying, even though the freaking song is over 50 years old!

I am all for adding more abandonware to GOG. In fact, I just sent the site an email on this very topic. That being said, I am 100% against GOG charging money for abandonware. Any title that is officially abandonware should be free, period. Charging people for a game that is legally free is not an approach for this website that I approve of whatsoever. I love GOG and I want GOG to succeed, but not if they are going to take advantage of gamers like that. In my opinion, GOG should be doing everything in its power to get more free games on this site and Abandonware is the perect solution. A well stocked free games section could be a major draw for GOG.

Sierra's Outpost was unplayably buggy. Bringing it back without some major major extensive patching would just be an exercise in frustration.

Event Horizon "Veil of Darkness" and 'The Summoning". Two great games from the early 90's.

Outpost 1, originally released by Sierra. For its time it had great graphics good story and was scientifically accurate. Not to mention, challenging enough to hold the interest of anyone who has imagined building their own civilization on a new world. I feel this would be great addition

Speaking of limited 'free' giveaways, one example was Sierra back in the 90's gave out the disk version of Betrayal of Kronder, on their website. You could download it for free (this was to advertise the release of either Betrayal at Antara, or Return to Kronder), but the fine print was you couldn't redistribute it further. <br /> <br /> So once Sierra took down the promotional, there wasn't a legal way to obtain the game. It's back to being sold again! <br /> <br /> Mystery House was placed on public domain, and you read the whole facts behind it within some of the cracked copies that were made by other companies. For example the copy that was included in Roberta Williams collection was distributed by a third party other than Sierra, and has the Public Domain information included in one of its files. <br /> <br /> " <br /> The Public Domain Exchange <br /> 2074c Walsh Ave. <br /> Santa Clara, CA 95050 <br /> (408) 496-0624 <br /> <br /> From a great moment in history: Mystery House, the first graphic adventure, was created in 1980 by Sierra On-Line founders Ken and Roberta Williams, and released into the public domain in 1987 to celebrate Sierra's 7th anniversary. <br /> <br /> We encourage you to copy this game, for yourself or to share. If you have enjoyed it you may send a $5 donation to Ken and Roberta's favorite Charity, <br /> <br /> <br /> Sierra Historic Sites Association, <br /> P.O. Box 451. <br /> Oakhurst CA 93644 <br /> <br /> <br /> Note: because it is now free, Sierra's gift to you, we can no longer take calls on this game. If you need help. We suggest you contact your local Apple users group to talk with others who may have played it."

Games given out by the publishers are 'freeware' or released into the 'public domain' by the publishers (see Beneath a Steel Sky or Mystery House). However some companies have limited free release, as in you can get the game for free from specific sites, but you cannot pass the game onto other people or upload the game to other sites. <br /> <br /> There is no such thing as 'abandoneware'. It is not a legal term. If distribution occurs it is still breaking copyright laws.

@Gaerzi: Abandonware in its essence is software which was abandoned by its publisher/developer, therefore a kind of orphaned work, completely legal concept. Abandonware which is redistributed by third parties is a form of "warez", only this form of abandonware is illegal. The concept of "abandonware" is not necessarily connect with the concept of "warez", that's my point. E.g. the preservation of abandware is now legal.

"abandonware" is not "orphaned works". I go on abandonware sites, I see titles such as Doom on them. Despite the developer and publisher still being alive and well, and the game still being sold on the developer's site as well as on a popular digital distribution platform, and still getting officially ported to new platforms (PS3 and XBLA as part of that "BFG Edition" thing). But it's an old game and it's tiny and quickly downloaded and it doesn't have any sort of DRM, which means that it's abandonware! Weeeeee! Yeah no. This is why abandonware is not a legal concept. Orphaned works sure is; but most of abandonware is not orphaned works. It's just warez that you can get away with.

@graspee: I repeat, Abandonware is a complete legal concept, orphaned software. Illegal is ONLY the redistribution (Preserving became legal recently <a href="http://www.copyright.gov/1201/docs/fedreg-notice-final.pdf" class="light_un" target="_blank">http://www.copyright.gov/1201/docs/fedreg-notice-final.pdf</a> ), while it can be argued that even redistribution is legitimate.

@Ponchik, I feel like the biggest strength of GoG is their ability to offer a legal way to obtain a copy of an old, possibly forgotten, game that isn't offered anywhere else legally. That's why this abandonware struggle is worth it, even if it costs an extra $6-$10.
