1. They were discontinued because they don't work on a modern computer without the aid of external software such as DOSBox. 3DR shouldn't have to provide technical assistance for someone else's software, so anything that doesn't work in Windows gets discontinued.

2. Yes. Joe has said on many occasions that 3DR intends to release all of their discontinued games as freeware, if they can legally do so.

3. Not likely. These games were based on the FAST engine (Fluid Animation Software Technology), which was only used in those three games. Some early games, such as Jumpman Lives!, came with editors, but most games of that era weren't designed with custom user levels in mind.
