Help! Hypercard emulator wanted

with 3 comments

Have been trying to find a Hypercard emulator for OS X Lion (10.7 onwards) or any other OS – and no luck at all. My employer needs it to restore a simulation we were contracted to create for Bistsream Corp in 1991.

If you’re a veteran geek and know of any way to run a HyperCard stack on OS X (or any other OS!) please can you comment below.

Update: Of course, a full on pre OS X MacOS emulator would solve the problem too.


(BTW, Hypercard was superb. It would be great if someone created something like it today for building apps or web mockups.)

  1. Google “Sweet16” to find the emulator which I have running on OS X (Mavericks). You will find HyperCard at . Don’t wing it. You need to follow the instructions. Of course, someone probably told you this two years ago.
    I share your enthusiasm for HyperCard, and it is a shame that Apple let it die.

  2. I should have known better than to enter a URL for Hypercard. Never fear. The Sweet16 web site will tell you where to go for software, and you’ll find HyperCardGS listed.
