In the fall of 1979, Sirotech Software, was founded by Norman Sirotek and Robert Woodhead. Sirotech Software published Info Tree, a database management program, Galactic Attack and a beta version of Wizardry: Dungeons of Despair which was later renamed Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord and formally released in the fall of 1981. It was the first game in the Wizardry series.[1]

In the spring of 1981, Sir-Tech Software, Inc. was incorporated as a United States-based video game developer and publisher.

In 1998, Sir-Tech USA closed.[2] The Canadian counterpart Sirtech Canada Limited continued to operate until late 2003.[3]

Sir-Tech is best known for Wizardry, the role-playing video game series. The Jagged Alliance series first published by Sir-Tech in 1994, became a popular franchise. The third game in the Jagged Alliance series, Jagged Alliance 2, was still available from its current publisher after 15 years since its initial release.
