The Wizardry series, developed by Sir-Tech, gained a dedicated following for its challenging gameplay, intricate dungeons, and character development systems. The games were initially released for various home computer systems, including the Apple II and Commodore 64, and later expanded to other platforms such as MS-DOS and consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
Despite the success of the Wizardry and Jagged Alliance franchises, Sir-Tech faced financial difficulties in the late 1990s. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2001, leading to the closure of its operations. The intellectual property rights for the Wizardry series were later acquired by other companies, and the franchise continued under different developers and publishers.
Although Sir-Tech Software is no longer active, its legacy lives on through the games it developed, which left a lasting impact on the RPG and strategy genres. The Wizardry series, in particular, is still considered a classic in the RPG genre and has influenced countless game developers over the years.
