Interesting. I had un-dug my Game Writer documentation yesterday to
check it out before posting my 'findings'. I do have the floppy disk
and have been able to run it in the CoCo 3 but being a CoCo 1/2
application, as expected no CoCo 3 features are used.

Definitively the "Education Management Systems" label is found in the
software manual. Seem to recall that Tandy/Radio Shack released some
interesting software under that umbrella, for example "The Factory";
unknown to me if there was other packaging available, The Factory copy
I have came in a light almost beige hard box, with the 'Education'
label somewhere... never saw that one on the local RS store back in
the day though.
