Is there a way to query a list of new free Microsoft store games?
I've used Windows 10 since the beginning but I can count on on hand the number of times I've opened the app and the only thing I've ever installed from it is WSL and I don't open it if I don't have to and I'm not going to be checking it for this thread.

If you click on the download link above and see a green bar at the top, close it and click on the download button at the top right corner.

Clonk (all titles)
(change website language with the flags at the top right)
http://www.clonk.de/index.php?lng=en (english downloads)
http://www.clonk.de/index.php?lng=de (german downloads)

http://www.clonk.de/classics.php?lng=en (english downloads, DOS & Early Windows 95/98)
http://www.clonk.de/classics.php?lng=de (german downloads, DOS & Early Windows 95/98)

All titles, from DOS to Windows, available in english and german, early Windows titles also work on Windows 10. (however, you will get much better performance on Windows 95 via DOSBox on Clonk 4 and Planet)
DOS titles obviously require DOSBox to work.

Single- and Multiplayer (local / internet) possible, depending on the game.
All games come with Tutorial levels to introduce controls and game mechanics, so even if you've never played Clonk before the Tutorial levels will keep you covered.

Personal picks:

Clonk 3 Radikal (DOS)
jUZ8CEI.jpgIsf0CxH.png
http://www.clonk.de/classics.php?lng=en
http://www.clonkx.de/classics/clonk34us.zip (english)
http://www.clonkx.de/classics/clonk33.zip (german)
Always free
Registration code included via .txt file, enter the name and code ingame to unlock all features.

Clonk Planet (Windows)
ElXXmSM.jpg1uc9Wjn.png
http://www.clonkx.de/planet/cp465us_free.exe (english)
http://www.clonkx.de/planet/cp465_free.exe (german)
Always free
Registration codes:
http://www.clonkx.de/planet/cp_freeware_us.txt (english version)

Official Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgPC479ZkSA

Optional:
https://ccan.de/ (change website language with the flag at the top right)
Thousands of community created mods for various versions of Clonk.

Heavily recommended: Stargate mod (Engine: GWE4)

Note the "Engine version" refers to these versions:
GWE4 = Clonk Planet
CE = Clonk Endeavor
CR = Clonk Rage

Q-POP (Windows 3.1)
Q8Tji47.png

https://www.frunit.de/qpop/download.php

Manuals:
https://www.frunit.de/qpop/manual/manual_en.html
https://www.frunit.de/qpop/manual/manual_de.html

Q-POP is a rather obscure Spore-like game and only known in Germany, the English version isn't fully translated as it never got to be released.
You can control 1 of 6 alien species, a hotseat function for multiplayer is also available.
The game is divided in 3 main sections:
In the overworld you place down your creatures and occupy land as well as attack the other species.
In the "Eat or be Eaten" level you will have to walk around, eat plants and mate to produce offspring.
In the "Beasts and Mutations" status screen you can increase your skills according to how many evolution points you've gained.

It can only be played under Windows 3.1 if you choose the downloadable version at FRUNIT.
If you want more than 256 colors in Windows 3.1 to enjoy the full colour-scheme of the game, download and install this: ftp://ftp.cstula.ru/oldftp/DRV&BIOS/Video/s3/ … 64/w3117004.zip
Unzip the 3 archives, then either open the German or French archive and unzip them into the same folder and start the install. After it has finished, you can change the colour mode under "Windows-Setup":

KpmOJql.png
(do not go higher then 32K or Windows will complain about not enough RAM and some icons will stay black)

A modernized Browser-Version can be played here:
https://frunit.itch.io/q-pop

Click the "DE"-button at the top right to change to a fully translated English version of the game.

Unfortunately, the CD Music cannot be used in the Browser version and neither in the downloadable DOS versions.
The Music was only available on the later CD version release.

The Midi-Music is compatible with AdLib/SB1.5 and Roland-Midi devices.

Magnetic Planet (Windows 3.1 & Windows 10)

37s5fvc.png
https://www.frunit.de/qpop/download.php

German only.
Basically a re-skin of Q-POP but with robots. All the game mechanics are identical, so even without an english version you should be able to play it no problem if you choose to play it under Windows 3.1.

Choose the "MPLAN32.exe" file to start the game under Windows 10, there you will have additional options such as being able to choose "English" as language.

Panzer General Forever

An excellent fan remake of Panzer General and Allied General designed for Windows XP, but reportedly works on Windows 2000 as well. The developer later went on to work on The commercial game Panzer Corps for Slitherine as a result of this work.

I believe OpenTTD earlier required you to own TTD as mentioned here

There's a libre data pack that may be used if you don't have the original game.
