Kept for nostalgia only (for now).

Home of the Underdogs Affiliates are sites hosted by us that are run by webmasters who are as passionate about we are about oldies. Due to limited bandwidth and server space, we do not take applications for new affiliates. However, if you run a game-related fansite that you think is good, with minimal bandwidth requirements (i.e. small or no downloads), feel free drop us a line :)

  • HOTU Tech Help - A wonderful effort by Jefe Picaro, a HOTU regular, to help others solve tech problems. If you experience problems running a game on this site, this site most likely has the solution ;)
  • Z2 - One of the most comprehensive database of fanmade games created with ZZT. Reviews, downloads, and much more!
  • Reality-on-the-Norm - Excellent fanmade adventure games by different authors, all based in the same "Reality on the Norm" gameworld
  • The Macintosh Garden - One of the best (and few) Macintosh abandonware sites. Be sure to also check our Non-PC Underdogs collection for more Macintosh classics
  • Adlib Music Archive - Undoubtedly the best archive of Adlib music on the Internet
  • Superfighter Homepage - Great fighting game by none other than Death Adder, webmaster of DFG
  • Flashback Abandonware - One of the oldest abandonware sites on the WWW today
  • The Abandonware Guide - Comprehensive reviews of abandonware games, with technical help and utilities section

There are also several community-related affiliates that were created and maintained by forum regulars for the benefit of other regulars. If you haven't been in our forum, you are missing out on one of the coziest places to reminisce about classic games, and life in general ;)

  • The Kennel by Reverendo Custer - Our official comic strip, dedicated to the site and its forum regulars. There are some inside jokes that only forum regulars will understand-- one more reason to join this wonderful community of oldie lovers :)
  • Brunus Faces by Brunus - A great collection of faces from games you can use as personal picture (i.e. personal "avatar") for our forum
  • Home of the Smiley by Vanguard3000 - Collection of cool smileys you can use to spice up your posts (in our forum, of course)
  • Bored? Want to compete against HOTU forum regulars? Check out HOTU game competitions hosted by Timpsi - race, fight and outwit your fellow forum regulars :)
