I can't believe this actually exists.  Check out these screen shots:

Apparently the site claims its legal to download stuff from there but their explanation isn't very solid.  Here's what they claim:

Quote
Wikipedia: "Abandonware is computer software which is no longer being sold or supported by its copyright holder. Alternately, the term is also used for software which is still available, but on which further support and development has been deliberately discontinued."

Since the software is no longer sold or supported, the copyright holders are not directly harmed in any way. This is why abandonware sites are, for the most part, ignored by the law.

The distribution of copyrighted software however is, and will allways be, illegal!

If this download link is inappropriate, mods, then please remove this section of the post.

The object of the game is to find the copy of the film that was stolen by "Lugosi #2" who wants to take it and get it - GASP! - colorized!!!!

EDIT: Someone named "Mighty Midget" came up with "Plans 1 - 8 + 10" on the forum for the game....

Plan 1: To kill the Dead to.. oh damn.

Plan 2: To tickle the living into submission

Plan 3: To raise the deaf (nooone did hear the call)

Plan 8: To happily admit plotting is painfully hard
