Not sure if it counts for anything here but, I'm streaming Gunmetal by Mad Gernius Software circa 1998 on Twitch. Here's the video archive of the first stream.

I try to stream on Twitch around 12:00 AM CT, as I can only stream if my family is asleep or in otherwords; when the only device accessing the internet is my own PC.

If AT&T would let us fine tune and configure our own gateways properly this wouldn't be a problem for me.

Something off the trodden PC path, but instead out of the SEGA universe:

Interesting, I had NO idea those were released as standalone. Do you have a pic of the original disk? (I know it came from a shareware distributor rather than Sierra - would be neat to see anyway.)

Looks like the "Media Vision" sponsorship banner is missing from Ms. Astro Chicken - I always wondered what was up with that. Sierra didn't seem to have any other relationship with them...

No, sorry. I lost all my Shareware disks a long time back. I might have thrown or given them away. I was young... 😉

I could also imagine that Sierra gave out those games as freebies on trade shows. Maybe there are original Sierra Astro Chicken disks out there...?
