The Artist
« on: December 07, 2020, 03:32:03 PM »
Someone found a (really obscure?) program for the Apple 2 called "The Artist":

It's apparently a graphics editor that reused a lot of the routines from the very early Sierra games (pre-AGI).

Does anyone know if this is floating around anywhere and is already known, or is it a rare gem?

Don't know much about the application, interesting there's not much info on it, but check out this comment in that thread:

Sierra... that sounds familiar. Isnít that the company that morphed into Blizzard North, and created Diablo I & II?

Absolutely.

Kids these days with their 4K 3D games... I remember when games only had sixty four thousand pixels total! And a whole subset of 'em used half out of some possibly misguided attempt to be compatible with some obscure failure. /s

AGI was 15 years years old when AGI studio was released.

AGI Studio is now 21 years old and can legally purchase alcohol in the US.

So I think that's a yes.
