Steve: Thank you! …. Actually, you touched on something which I’ve been thinking about. It does seem like the nature of computer games, and how people think of computers in the family, has changed. I remember when everyone thought that computer games were healthy, and that products like Master Type and Carmen San Diego were huge hits. We sold something like a half million Mixed Up Mother Goose games. Our adventure games were a big hit with parents because they taught typing and thinking skills. Sierra’s “The Incredible Machine” is still one of my favorite products that Sierra ever produced.
I don’t understand how things have changed so dramatically… It’s a sad commentary, but none of these products would have a place in today’s market.
