Good luck with that. There's actually very, very FEW truly public domain* games and I can only think of Paku Paku right now (which is for DOS but still)

* - note that a lot of old 80s "public domain" games legally are not and are hexedited commercial games for early guilt-free software piracy, and it doesn't end there as i've seen the same happen to some 90's windows games
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

Gemini has covered a few of these so-called "public domain" games on Shovelware Diggers. XD
