A HyperCard stack produced in 1992 detailing various policy positions of Presedential Candidate Bill Clinton. Billed in the stack as "ActivistWare", this HyperCard stack was made by FOG Software, which seems to be made up of a Michael Agosta and J.B. Lawton III. Going by the textfile included with the stack, FOG Software weren't part of the CLinton campaign itself, but rather acting independently as enthusiastic supporters/volunteers: Date: Sat, 08 Aug 92 06:34:28 EST  From:...

A wacky interactive cartoon where you play Sean, a character that seems to continuously find himself in bad situations. Funny stuff. New version includes a way to save the game to a file, a menubar, and other minor bug fixes. Now runs on Hypercard Player. From a forum post: "This is a MacOS 9 emulator (for OSX - so I guess I'm mostly looking at Riff and Hotstuff). It has a few hoops to jump through to get it working. Drag the 'hypercard.sheepvm' onto 'Sheepshaver' to launch Hypercard in...

The BeerStack is a useful reference guide for home brewers. Included in this stack are recipes and information about different styles of beer. "Beer is one of the most complex beverages that you can drink. It is, among other things, good-tasting, social, and in too high a quantity intoxicating. To me, beer is more than a glass of light brown liquid with alcohol and a foam head; it is the ultimate topic to discuss among friends or enemies and a very peculiar fluid indeed. Many people I know...

Winning HyperCard stacks from the 1989 SuperStacks contest. Presented exactly as the CD-ROM disk image. Navigate to the "SuperStacks" folder to see the winning stacks, or launch the "Open SuperStacks" player for the originally intended experience, although it's a little clunky, IMO. ***NOTE*** This item contains a 210MB disk image, please be patient while it downlaods and mounts once emulated.

An interactive HyperCard stack, exploring the ecosystem of a typical section of shoreline in Auckland, New Zealand. I have not seen this stack archived anywhere else, but I remember using it in school, and found a copy of it on a decades-old backup of an ex-NZ-school-system Classic II that I once owned. The content maybe very niche, but it has some lovely artwork in it.

A short and simple HyperCard stack containing some 8-bit Macintosh artwork of Stranger Things characters. Created by Mike Carpenter, a vintage Apple Mac enthusiast, who says he "copied the pics from youtube then converted them to MacPaint format with GraphicConverter".

The Electronic Whole Earth Catalog is a very early CD-ROM presentation of The Whole Earth Catalog. Utilising HyperCard, The Electronic Whole Earth Catalog consists of over 9000 cards connected to one another with hypertext; essentially the web before the web existed, but offline! This emulated-in-browser item contains a 430MB disk image so please be patient while it downloads. Once the emulation has booted, open the Whole Earth Catalog folder and double click "Home" to launch.

Volume 2 consists of the most complex creations from his late period: three erotic poems. (Note: They are explicit.)

Mouse-controlled Super Mario Kart clone. Created by OYU! (土屋 悦男) in June 1994 using HyperCard. Read about how this game was rediscovered on my blog. FOR EMULATED SOUND Use a supported browser (I recommend Chrome, sound will not work in Safari) Unmute on the Internet Archive page Once the System is booted: open Apple menu > Control Panel > Sound, then adjust volume level from zero to something more audible.
