    Back in 1997 I used to play a game on the school computers. I think it was called "The PC Business" or "The Computer Business". There wasn't much to it; it was a business simulation game, you had to get the parametres right (how much staff to hire, wages, QA etc) for each month. There was an animation of the manufacturing line and computers would fall off if there was a problem on the line.

    The only other detail I remember was playing this on a pre-iMac mac and the game was greyscale - the system itself was in colour.


    Now the problem is this! The person who used to play it the most was a bona fide genius, and his website is still full of apps and games that he built over the years. I don't have his email and he isn't on any social media sites.

    So I'm not really sure if he made the game or what!

    Don't Know If It's Here

    But this site seems to have a good collection of "Old School" Mac games

    Thanks for the link! But it's not on there. I've contacted a mutual friend who thinks it was a commercial/shareware game, as the guy in question used to hate Macs. (even so far as blocking access to his site from Apple computers)

    The quest continues.
