Ah, Broderbund.  One of my favorite companies that made games for my Apple IIe.  So many tracks made in Stunts.

I would get in trouble for making banners after laboriously spending hours and printing them on the dot matrix on my C64.

I'd only get this if it comes with a dot matrix printer to complete the nostalgic experience.

For Generation Oregon Trail, this startup screen says "OMG, remember when your parents were together?"

Loved making and coloring in the banners as a kid. Felt like a superpower. My ex MiL still uses software from circa 1999 to design custom greeting cards for every correspondence.

Crazy, I was just telling my wife about using Print Shop when I was a kid, further proof we are in a shiatty simulation running at minimal power

The Apple II I got after they divorced was supposedly proof that dad still loved us and wanted us to be happy and successful. I loaded up Wizardry and promptly forgot both of those self absorbed a-holes.
