Passing along a request for research material...

Postby belford » Tue Jul 12, 2016 10:26 am

As part of my research for an upcoming article, I would really like to beg, borrow, or buy a copy of the 1989 CD-ROM version of The Manhole for the black-and-white Macintosh. Note that this means neither the 1988 floppy-disk release nor the 1994 Masterpiece edition or any other re-release.

While I can't help you. I must say you came to the right place! Have you tried contacting cyan directly? They're pretty nice people, they might let you buy one.
What do you see? I see a city, a people, destroyed along with the hope of millions, because of one man's pride.

Jimmy says (update on the post) that he has already contacted Cyan and they were forthcoming. So that's all good. :)
