First published by Brian Thomas in 1988, If Monks had Macs is one of th emost acclaimed and longest running interactive media project in history. The entire final CD-ROM is now a free download.
Now, 21 years after it began, If Monks had Macs is ending with a remake. To celebrate the release of the 2005 If Monks had Macs CD-ROM as freeware, Rivertext has remade its finest game, Killing Time. Killing Time was the last volume entered into the If Monks had Macs monastery library. Rivertext, led by Brian Thomas, has been mixing art and ideas online since 1986.
If Monks had Macs is an eclectic 24 volume guide to some shining moments of Western Civilization. "Legendary … almost defies description" was MacUser magazine's description of the original 1988 If Monks had Macs. MacWeek called the first CD-ROM version of Monks, "a seminal work of multimedia art." Adam Engst of TidBits wrote of the final 2005 release, "A word you seldom see applied to software is 'thoughtful' ... A playful sub-current swirls through everything."
The remade Killing Time is beautifully illustrated, quick and deep. The wood engravings in the game were first published in 1538 in Hans Holbein the Younger's Dance of Death. In the re-make the death cards are large enough that you can feel their power as you play with them. Now everyone can 'kill time without injuring eternity.'
