Legal Amiga games?

Is there a place where I can find a list of software/games for the Amiga which have been made Freeware like the recently Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress? I'm thinking expecially for the CD32/CDTV.

Back in October I started a thread about legal game links. Check it out here. Specifically you may be interested in the Legal Amiga CD Dumping Project.

Great thx FL! I missed that topic as it was before my time on this fourm What I've been trying to do is to make my site/ftp more legal besides my legal warnings and somewhat hard to get account. So this info is a nice step for my ultimate goal

Ah well it wasn't that informative I had hoped someone had made a list of games which is freeware now.
I only found out the following on CD32/CDTV are freeware.

Melon Dezign:
Naughty Ones
-----------------
Thalion:
Chambers of Shaolin
The Seven Gates of Jambala

Its a start but not nearly enough

I highly bought the legally of this site Legal Amiga CD Dumping Project What's makes it legal? I cant see anywhere when these games where released as freeware by their respected companies.

Hmm... I'm sure it used to list the details, but can't see them there now...

Hi everyone,

don't forget that we offer legal Amiga CD downloads, too. There are already 16 games available at http://www.back2roots.org/Games/CD-Games/ALL/. More will follow in the future.

Stay tuned for our next update. A game will come online in various formats (ADF,HD,CD) which is a true classic and especially famous in the UK (I think). Nevertheless the rest of the world enjoyed it a lot, too ;-). Nothing more to say.

He is looking for a list of games that have been made freeware, not just a few games for download....

Obvious blatant plug too.....

I think you should count them as being free for download but I don't think you're allowed to redistribute them. I think it says it all in the .txt file which comes with the games.

Yeah that was what i kinda feared but I'd like to get a comfirmation as I havent read the txt file. I do know that the Beneath A Steel Sky is freeware on both Amiga and PC though and can be redistributed anywhere.
