SIM Safari


This is a retail copy of the 1998 PC computer game SIM Safari, developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. The object has a cloth-like protective sleeve (most likely made of synthetic fibers) with a clear plastic window that allows one to see the face of the disk inside and a hole in the middle to allow easier access to the disk itself. The sleeve has a small long paper insert on one edge which denotes a list of what is likely audio tracks from a previous disk. The sleeve also has a second disk slot on the opposite side for an additional disk. The face of the CD-ROM disk has an orange print zebra stripe pattern on a white background. The top of the disk features the official logo for Sim Safari, the left side features the ESRB logo rating of "E" for everyone, while the bottom of the disk features the official logo for Maxis Kids. The top edge of the disk notes copyright information and warning.
