So I'm not looking for games from the well-known companies like Infocom, Tellarium, Legend, etc. Looking to compile a list of:

1. Games that used to be commercial but no longer (e.g. Once and Future, The Shadow and the Cathedral, 1893)

2. Games that are still commercial (e.g. Open Sorcery, Hadean Lands, 80 Days)

3. Games that have both a free version and a paid version (e.g. Anchorhead)

Eldrum: Untold and Eldrum: Red Tide. Both are text-based games inspired by CYOA books.

I suppose you are looking for newer titles?

In the late 80s / early 90s there were LOTS of independent games which nowadays would be classified as commercial indie games. So I will just mention a few of the companies which were usually driven by one person: Zenobi Software, River Software, Atlas Adventure Software. Those three alone sold more than 180 different IF titles (text adventures to be more precise) made by themselves or other hobbyists.
