Chex Quest was always freeware. Episode 1 came in cereal boxes. Episode 2 was a free download from the ChexQuest website. The cool dude who made them both then did Episode 3 about 15 years later and released all 3 episodes in one big mega wad as Chex Quest 3.

Yes, that's the real Chex Quest "3" the final version of the game. It comes as a stand alone game, but you can just throw the wad into your preferred release of GZDoom as well. There was also a totally different Episode 3 made years ago, but it was an unofficial fan game, and very poor quality from what I remember.

It's worth noting that at some point, General Mills started an official website for the game::
https://www.chexmix.com/chexquest/

Additionally, a while ago the owner of dosgames.com contacted Charles Jacobi, the author of the "official" Chex Quest 3, who said that it's okay to distribute the DOS versions as long as no money is charged for the download.

I love the Chex quest games. I remember seeing the cereal box in the stores as a kid and and parents buying it for me. We all had a great time playing both 1 and 2. Fast forward and I'm now 34 and showing my boys 6 and 21 months and then getting a kick out of them. Now I can't wait to play number 3 thank you all for posting the links.
