Microsoft Entertainment Pack for Windows Microsoft Corporation 1990

This compilation contains: Cruel Solitaire, Golf, IdleWild (A screensaver utility), Minesweeper, Pegged, Taipei, Tetris, TicTactics. The pack also includes several screen savers. Microsoft Entertainment Pack was designed by the company's "Entry Business" team, whose job was to make Windows more appealing to homes and small businesses. Ex-Microsoft product manager Bruce Ryan said the company did this because it "was concerned that the operating system’s high hardware requirements meant that people would only see it as a tool for large enterprises". The project had "almost no budget", and no major video game publishers got involved because they doubted Windows' legitimacy as a gaming platform; therefore Ryan compiled a series of games that Windows employees had been working on in their spare time. Microsoft advertised Entertainment Packs for casual gaming on office computers. The boxes had slogans like "No more boring coffee breaks" and "Only a few minutes between meetings? Get in a quick game of Klotski". The marketing succeeded; Computer Gaming World in 1992 described the series as "the Gorillas of the Gaming Lite Jungle", with more than 500,000 copies sold.
