Jill of the Jungle released as freeware

2 Nov 2018 at 17:31

Before Jazz, Epic MegaGames had a different platformer hero: Jill of the Jungle. She was the star of three episodes released from 1992 to 1993, and later reappeared as a table in Epic Pinball and in one of Jazz 1’s episode selection pictures… then nothing more. With the demise of the Epic Classics webstore in 2012, it became impossible to obtain the latter two (non-shareware) episodes of Jill legally.

Until today, when GOG.com has not only rereleased the complete trilogy, but made it permanently freeware for the first time ever. Is your Epic collection complete??

(Another Epic game, Xargon, was built from Jill’s engine/gameplay with significantly upgraded graphics, but Xargon was declared freeware over ten years ago.)

What about Radix: Beyond the void?

This is really cool, already got my copy! I hope they can get One Must Fall 2097 as well!

Wikipedia says OMF was made freeware in 1999.

Yes, but it’s unavailable for download legally. Plus, I’d rather have it on GOG with their installer and pre-configured DOSbox.

If it’s freeware, any download for it is legal.
