So my school district used this Pearson program called Successmaker Enterprise which consisted of smaller programs that the local computer administrator would assign to you based on your grade level/progress.
The modern version looks like this:
The version I grew up with more than a decade ago had no clear characters. But what it did have, is pretty decent pixel art, and a very 90's edutainment vibe. I can't find much about the old program other than a few screenshots from a Successmaker New Zealand website, which doesn't look 100% legit. And maybe from another website or another. I know it ran on Windows XP and maybe Windows 2000. This is what the hub to get to the programs looked like:
The screenshots I can get of the actual programs are: Story Painter
There's more but these are the one's I remember primarily.
It's so weird though because I cannot find any video evidence of these programs. (Maybe I'm not looking hard enough?) I can't even find a ROM. I mean this program had to be in a ton of schools nationwide, why can't I find more proof? My mother was the principal of an elementary school, and I know they used that program until at least 2010. She said she found the disc for Story Painter once before she changed schools, but that she lost it. That really sucks too, because Story Painter was the most fun program, and is a really great time capsule of the late 90's.
