What else can I say ?


This site has some simple objectives, try to make old (unsupported) OS/2 shareware games freeware and OpenSource. And support all the newer OS/2 games that are on the market this days.

If you know a game developer of an old or unsupported OS/2 game, let me know if he is interested on making it freeware or Opening the source of it so another developer can continued the project or learn from the code.
