Subnautica is free on the Epic store right now. If you haven't played it you really should and you can't beat the price.

Do you need to download a client like Steam or is it just a download?

You need to install the Epic Games Launcher software. So:

A Windows version of Lemmings is available for free from Microsoft Store:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/lemmings/9wzdncrfjcdm

Here's a playthrough:

It seems to include all levels from the original game, Holiday versions, and More Lemmings. Not sure how this is licensed though.

Also the interface appears similar to the fan-made Lemmins game by Geoff Storey:

Hmm, didn't expect any console or Windows store stuff in this thread..... Think when I consolidate all back to the first post I'd like to clarify platform and DRM status. Yeah it's free $$ wise but tied to a specific platform or service.

Looks like Subnautica on Epic doesn't require the client. If SteamVR exists then it will launch that but if it doesn't it doesn't complain.
Wow a dev who knows how to properly code their game.

I totally agree with you on this, but I felt it was worth noting. I only recently became interested in the Lemmings franchise and it seems like some aspects are not well documented or at least not widely known. I was unable to determine how the free thing at the MSStore is licensed, the developer (pcio.dk) has like zero information on their site either.

On another note, the very conspicuous Lemmings clone called Hamsters is freeware (full version here), I also tracked down the original page by Gregory Taylor:

You started a great thing nine and a half years ago! and its still going strong but times change, things evolve and DRM is a necessary evil. As your tag implies, many games are DOS games but under different platforms. This Lemmings game originally DOS, TOTALLY sounds off, more like awful, to me but not my 11yr old daughter. She has her own Windows 10 PC. Now she has a classic strategy game that I didn't have to pay for and she enjoys. I don't need to bother with DOSBox or ScummVM. I myself will always play it with the original music and graphics under DOSBox or my retro PC because it just seems sacrilege to do otherwise.

I'm not wanting to start a debate on platform or drm, this is not the place to do so. I just want to say thank you.

Great news then. The game looks like a modern version of the PC game Sub Culture, which I thought was a fun game.
