I wasn't into PC gaming in the early '90s, so I'll just have to believe people when they say that Epic MegaGames -- which would later drop the "Mega" part and become the company that's now best known for hauling in tons of cash from Fortnite: Battle Royale -- had a big hit with platformer Jill of the Jungle and its sequels. According to Wikipedia, it sold "20 to 30 copies daily," which sounds laughably small today, but must have been a big deal to Tim Sweeney and crew in Epic's early days.
Now Epic is making Jill of the Jungle: The Complete Trilogy available for free. You'll get the base game, as well as sequels Jill Goes Underground and Jill Saves the Prince from GOG for the same price as a cup of air. Just make sure you meet the killer system requirements of 512 MB of RAM and a video card that can handle DirectX 7.
