ChipWits and The Mac

Mike and I wrote ChipWits in 1984 – the year of the Mac. We got our hands on one of the futuristic little beige toaster the first week they were available retail.

Within 6 months we had created one of the best games for the Mac, as certified by numerous year-end magazine Best Educational Game awards

The first time I saw ChipWits in a computer store was a real rush. I stopped in to check out an Apple store and there was my baby running as the demo on their single Mac. Proudly I buttonholed an employee and asked where the boxes were.

The dude got flustered and admitted that it was a pirate copy. He said that a friend who worked at Apple had given him the copy. Hope ChipWits sold a few Macs for you, Mr. Jobs.

Now, being rather poor due to my neural problems, I don’t own a Mac. But it is important to me to release a Mac version of ChipWits on the same day as the Windows (and I hope Linux) versions. So I’m at an old friend’s house in Minneapolis working on his Mac to get an OS X hqx bundle ready.

And I look forward to buying a new Mac with some of the first ChipWit bucks to roll in.

Love the Mac, but Amiga was the most fun computer to program for.

*Thanks, Senor Wences, for the photo of ChipWits running on an old Mac.

    Get rid of and throw away all those snacks that are full of sugars and fats.
    ok that’s true for a length of time those unwanted pounds will begin shedding, then your fat reduction will slow till it merely becomes a total waste of time and money, your system is re acting to you starving it of the essential fuel it requires to survive, instead of losing weight it begins to keep food to compensate for what you are denying it. Utilizing an on-line calculator can provide you with an understanding, but everybody is various.
