The Epic Games Store is currently having a sale and giving away a different free game every day or so.
The sale includes a coupon for $10 that can be applied to any purchase of $15 or more and then comes back,
or in other words, you get $10 off any game you buy that's over $15. (I'm sitting this out;
I don't think I've played any of what I bought in the last sale other than Into the Breach.)

This?

https://archive.org/details/the_even_more_incredible_machine_1993
I believe so. I remember trying to get it to load on XP and it wouldn't load all the colors, no matter what we tried. It was a totally different and more challenging game:)
And then I learnt about a virtual machine, and we finally got the real colors back ;D

Galactic Civilizations III is free on the EGS for another day or 2. As you might imagine, it's a strategy game.

Currently free on the EGS - Absolute Drift: Zen Edition.

Installed EGS games can be run without opening the EGS via their .exe files
(or a shortcut to them), e.g. C:\Program Files\Epic Games\[Game Name]\[EXE file].exe

Currently free on EGS:
https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/the-fall

Well-reviewed.

Wikipedia: The story centers on Arid, an artificial intelligence installed in a technologically-advanced combat space suit, as she
navigates a decaying industrial facility in search of medical attention for the suit's injured pilot with traditional adventure game
elements requiring found items and unlocked skills to progress the story, along with 2D cover-based shooting.

The current free EGS game is Tales of the Neon Sea.
Might not be for children. (Also, supposedly very puzzly.)

Free on EGS:
Demo version of Hundred Days - Winemaking Simulator.

Only temporarily free:
"The Lionís Song is a narrative adventure game. It is steeped in early 20th century history and focuses on a cast of Austrian artists and scientists with each episode taking a closer look at their intimate struggles with creativity and inspiration."

Probably not for your children, though.

The isometric ARPG genre is not really growing that much. had high hopes for Torchlight 3, but it turned out to be worse that the previous one.
