(re: Goofy’s Word Factory) Wow! This was some difficult research! I had to abuse archive.org quite a lot.
“I don’t know if this game was released, and why it was possibly cancelled. The box shot is from an Sierra/Disney Personal Computer Software -ad. Here’s what it reads on the ad:
“Today, Goofy starts his new job at the word factory. As words move along the conveyor belt, it’s his job to sort them out, dropping each in the chute where it belongs – nouns in the noun chute, verbs in the verb chute, and so on.
He can carry each word to its proper chute, but that takes time. Or he can throw the words, but he’ll have to watch out for the passers-by. Goofy sure could use your help. If he does well, he may even get promoted.”
I have a 1986 Sierra registration card that mentions Goofy’s Word Factory with these computer platforms and even prices: Apple II ($29.95), Commodore 64 ($24.95) and PC ($29.95). The prices suggest the game would have been released and available for purchase, but then it would be odd since nobody knows about it — why would it be so forgotten?”
