Interview: Ken Williams (Sierra)


Dec 30, 2019
Wellington, NZ
Sorry for the cross-post but I thought that this might be of interest/relevant to this area too...

I met with Ken Williams of Sierra On-Line fame for a fascinating chat about all things Sierra: From where it all began, with Ken finding a copy of a text adventure on a mainframe and Roberta being obsessed by it. To how the company was nearly bankrupt and was rescued by IBM and Tandy. Ken talks about one of his proudest products, The Sierra Network, as well as his relationships with Al Lowe and ‘The two guys from Andromeda’ (Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe). Ken releases a new book entitled ‘Not all fairy tales have happy endings’, which talks about all things Sierra, including how it really worked on the inside. The book is available next month.
