'''''Vinyl Goddess from Mars''''' is an oft-forgotten [[UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer MS-DOS]] {{platform|Game}}er released in 1995. Originally planned as a sequel to Creator/EpicMegaGames' ''VideoGame/JillOfTheJungle'' at one point during development, Epic was not pleased with the quality of the game and opted to publish ''VideoGame/JazzJackrabbit'' at the time instead. The game was then picked by Six Pound Sledge Studios with some changes here and there, and published by Union Logic Software Publishing, Inc..

Set in the year 200 billion, the [[ExcusePlot plot]] follows our scantily-clad heroine, Vinyl, on her way to an intergalactic BMovie convention when a sudden meteor shower throws her ship off course. Vinyl ends up crash lands into a strange planet, where [[ItsUpToYou you]] must help the lovely goddess find her belongings before it's too late to reach the convention in time. The game is split into three episodes, with the first episode being released as shareware, where the goddess wanders around in exotic locations and fights against off very odd enemies.

Debra Dare, winner of Miss Nude Universe of 1993, also modeled for the box cover art, introduction screen, and pin-up poster.
