The Return of the Sdraziw of Sir-Tech

June 1, 2020

TCW Podcast Episode 115 - The Return of the Sdraziw of Sir-Tech

 

Our second part look at Sir-Tech Software!  The company continues to struggle with the release of wizardry V, but makes the transition away from the Apple II with the release of Wizardry VI.  The Wizardry franchise is a major hit in the Japanese PC space.  This leads to Wizardry anime, manga, and Japanese only games.  Sir-Tech still continued to struggle to maintain a presence as the US PC industry continued to consolidate.  Despite some success bringing foreign software to the states, Sir-Tech closed operations in the 2000s.
