Sir-Tech Software, Inc. was a video game developer and publisher based in the United States and Canada.

History[edit]

In fall 1979, Sirotech Software was founded by Norman Sirotek, Robert 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 Wizardry series.[1]

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.[2] The Canadian counterpart, Sirtech Canada Limited, continued to operate until late 2003.[3]

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.
