Anirog Software

Postby YetiSeti on Sat Feb 27, 2010 10:15 pm

Here's a real piece of computing history. An auction I have just won for a few computers (a noteworthy Memotech MTX512 in there) belongs to a person who was part of the family business of Anirog Computers. Now who out there doesn't have a title from this software house in their computer & gaming collection?

The memotech sounds interesting.

Hmm...Anirog? Rings a vauge bell. What was there most popular title and what machine did they produce for?

Yes, one of the few computers I wanted as a kid. It looked pretty cool and was well spec'd. It will bring some life to a hefty in price box of NZ Memotech User Group magazines and documentation I spent a pretty penny on a couple years back in anticipation of a Memotech turning up one day. There must have been a few of them around in the country and someone must know about them.

BinaryDinosaurs ( http://www.binarydinosaurs.co.uk/Museum/Memotech/index.php) among other sites points out that this was the computer used in Weird Science to create Kelly LeBrock's character (<80s drool, gargle gargle>)

A good review of the Memotech to read is at : http://www.atarimagazines.com/creative/v10n6/48_Memotech_MTX512.php

(lazy post, copying & pasted snippet from my facebook status update) You may remember such titles as Flight Path 737 Image), Jump Jet, House of Usher, Moon Buggy, Survivor, 3D Time Trek. Or maybe you won't.

Other popular links anyone can google up :

http://www.gamespot.com/games.html?type=company&mode=74117

I see the absence of Survivor on these sites which I had on the Amstrad (& maybe copies of a few others). One or two others also I have on my shelves don't seem to be listed, but a fair few titles were pumped out by Anirog.
