How do you play retro games?

Commercial mods

Group Description

This is a list of games that are direct derivatives of freely distributed modifications, or simply "commercial mods".

Accepted games:
  • Games that were modifications at some point in their development without publisher deals
  • Games getting a publisher deal that are largely based on the original modification they're a result of, or a close adaptation of it.


Unacceptable games:
  • Mods that never received a publisher deal
  • Games that are the result of a developer getting a publisher deal because of their past work, but are not based on a mod.
