Release Date: 1/1/1982
Manufacturer: HES
With home computers came productivity software. This cartridge is somewhat unusual in that its release year is 1982 - fairly early in the life of the VIC-20. HES writer is, as one might expect, a word processor for the VIC-20. There are no bells and whistles (spellcheck, WYSIWYG text, etc.) but, this early in the history of personal computing, having an alternative to the typewriter would have sold more than a few computers. HES cartridges are somewhat unique in that the author of the program is named on the label of the cartridge (in this case, Jerry Bailey).
