Bunny Abandonware

Welcome! We scour old closets, mouldy floppy discs, and the darkest tubes of the internet for the best of the best games in the galaxy, and we exhibit them here, so you can get them down into your hot little hard drives, for you to experience and enjoy some genuine gaming history!

R.I.P Home of the Underdogs :'(

 in News — bunnzy

If you know anything about old games, retro-gaming, abandonware or anything cool, then you know about Home of the Underdogs. You don’t know about HOTU? STOP reading and leave.

I remember when there were many abandonware websites. Back in the days of Flashback, Conservatory etc. Then maybe we grow up and grow away from these things. Everyone runs off and gets a job or gets married 😛 The rest of us die-hard nerds are left here behind holding it all together… Maybe abandonware stops being 100k games from the 80s and becomes 100mb games from the late 90s and we are left with the issue of hosting and bandwidth. What to do?

The die-hards aren’t leaving. The Good Old Days, XTC Abandonware, Abandonia, this website. We’ll still be here.

It’s a sad day when the world loses access to rare games, old games, forgotten games, forsaken games.

I must say it is a relief that HOTU went down because the hosting company went bankrupt. Is that an awful thing to say? I’m glad because it’s not because it got closed down by some crappy dictatorshippycommunisty IDSA or something bullshit like that.

Hopefully someone is man enough to step up and take over. Did I say “man enough”? This scene is run by chicks – if you didn’t know that then you should leave again in case you get an inferiority complex 😉

Sad day, sad day indeed. It means the rest of us are going to have to work extra hard to pick up the slack. Rise to the challenge boys :p
