Back in the days before the internet, I remember playing several really great games found on BBS's that I would like to introduce to my kids. for christmas I am putting together a couple old machines for the kids to play games on, and I think they would enjoy some of them, like Commander Keen, Jill of the Jungle, the original Prince of Persia, and for the older child the original Elders scrolls game Arena. These games are so old that many of them are open sourced or abandonedware games. Does anyone know any repositories where one could find them ported to linux or play them through dosemu?
Use dosbox or scummvm for the ones that it supports. Search the net for the games, I won't post links, not because they are illegal (the companies that made them have disappeared and will not be suing from the grave) but because you can find them with a simple search.
Thank you for the useful information, and I understand not linking to some of the titles... I was looking for some of the older games like in the case of arena where the company freely distributes it or where it has been source coded and ported natively to *nix. I did not realize id was still selling their ancient titles like that! Thank you all for the assistance, and if you think of any that that have been source released/open sourced that you think I might be interested for this, I'd appreciate it
