After using Craigslist to hunt down an old Macintosh, redditor bobwowbob stumbled upon a NSFW surprise hidden in a fake “America Online” folder. As it turns out bobwowbob had actually discovered a rare “interactive erotica” app, called MacPlaymate. The app was put together by comic book artist and game designer, Mike Saenz in 1986.
The premise of MacPlaymate was very simple:
Players could strip down a digital avatar named Maxie, mess around with Maxie using various sex toys with names like Mighty Mo Throbber, and watch Maxie 'make it' with other digital characters. The software even had a “panic” button that'd bring up a spreadsheet if someone walked by your computer screen.
The following is a NSFW demo of MacPlaymate, and the dude's voice and commentary are at least 20x creepier than the software itself:
A unique post on Craigslist is a message to the unknown previous owners of a once-emaciated, now rescued pit bull that was discovered as a result of an eviction. The current owner of the dog holds no hard feelings and seems to only want to give an update of sincere love and thanks for their added family member.
She is sleeping next to me as I type this, grunting with joy. In fact, she sleeps on my bed every night. Your dog is an awesome dog. We love her so much. The past three years we've had with her have brought us (and her) so much happiness.
One bit of information they are seeking is the age and original name of their beloved pup. We encourage you to reach out to this person if you have any information about the history of this beautiful pit bull.
