In fall 1979, Sirotech Software was founded by Norman Sirotek and Robert Woodhead. Sirotech Software published Info Tree, a database management program, Galactic Attack and a beta version of Wizardry: Dungeons of Despair which was later renamed Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord and formally released in fall 1981. It was the first game in the Wizardryseries. In spring 1981, Sir-Tech Software, Inc was incorporated as a video game developer and publisher in the United States. In 1998, Sir-Tech USA closed. The Canadiancounterpart, Sirtech Canada Limited, continued to operate until late 2003. Sir-Tech is best known for Wizardry, the role-playing video game series. The Jagged Alliance series, first published by Sir-Tech in 1994, became a popular franchise. The third game in the series, Jagged Alliance 2, was still available from its current publisher 15 years after its initial release.

Who currently owns the rights to the Wizardry series? I can't seem to find any information about the results of the closing of Sir-Tech. 1. According to http://replay.web.archive.org/20080607224946/http://www.rpgdot.com/index.php?hsaction=10053&ID=171, Sir-Tech (or possibly just Robert Sirotek?) still owned the rights after closing in 2001, but they were willing to consider selling them. I also found another page (http://www.silverstarholdings.com/investments/strategy.html) that says Sir-Tech Canada was acquired by Strategy First, but another interview with Robert Sirotek (http://pc.ign.com/articles/065/065299p1.html) claims that Sir-Tech Canada did not own the rights to Wizardry. So I guess maybe Sirotek still owns the rights, although he may have sold them by now. - Hihihi 00:22, 3 April 2007 (UTC) 1.1. According to their website (http://ipm.gamepot.co.jp/index_english.html), IPM Inc in Japan acquired the rights in 2006. Whether that includes Wizardry 1-8 or just the trademarks is...
I remember some Sir-Tech games I've not seen talked about online. Stellar Attack (?) was a Star-Trek sort of game, where you were flying your ship around the solar system fighting off Kzanta (?) ships and then beaming armies down to planets to take them over. I think it was written in Pascal. A really fun game for it's time. TNK = Fire Torpedos at nearest Kzanta! Star Bounce, which played sort of like Subspace. At least I think these were the names, and I think Sir-Tech published them.dougmc04:49, 23 August 2006 (UTC) 1. Well, MobyGames doesn't list any of those games, but it doesn't mean they don't (or didn't) exist. But it might be best to find some evidence of the games before adding them. FWIW, the first Wizardry was also written in Pascal... and was one of the big reasons I became a game programmer! :-) — Frecklefoot | Talk15:31, 23 August 2006 (UTC) Yup, I recall how the documentation of Wizardry said how it was just too complicated of a game to write in BASIC, and how instead...
Sirtech Canada was dissolved around Christmas 2003. A lot of good people lost our jobs and went to E.A. or other places. Sir-Tech US closed in 2001 BEFORE the release of Wizardry 8! Our games are not public domain, but as far as Wizardry 8 goes, no one holds the copyright... it is abandonware. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:28, 21 August 2008 (UTC)some.canadian.ip.address 1. Always nice to see first-hand commentary. It seems that the NY office of Sir-Tech closed in 1998; I wonder if there was another part of Sir-Tech US that stayed solvent until 2001? – SJ+06:41, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Idk what happened to the information on this page. I've been following the developing details on this game for a while now on various internet forums and I have to say it is an interesting game to say the least. I believe a couple of interviews are scheduled for people involved with the game which may shed more light on it. Although many former sir-tech employees seem less than enthusiastic about this information ever being discovered. I suppose if they had paid the storage unit fee this information would never have been released, because there wouldn't have been a storage unit auction with all the old sir-tech files, but unfortunately for them the cat is now out of the bag. Kalis8086 (talk) 22:49, 7 April 2014 (UTC) 1. I don't know why it's such a big conspiracy that they started developing a game that was never published. A lot of the games I worked on were never published. It happens, and it's usually beyond the control of the people developing it. — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk15:25, 8 Ap...
