The inspiration for MagikFortune came from an old program known simply as “Fortune”. Fortune would deliver a witty or interesting comment to the user whenever they logged in. Back then, the world of computing was drab and colorless with text only interfaces, and an amusing fortune would brighten your day! Of course this is still the case today, but while the world has moved on from text based computing to a graphics rich desktop, the poor old “Fortune” program has not ... until now!
Finally with the introduction of MagikFortune you can now again enjoy the thrill of receiving your fortune, but this time fully integrated in with a modern graphical operating system. No longer does your fortune appear as plain text on a plain screen, but it is delivered in speech by a fully animated 3D character that moves, speaks and generally amuses.
Although developed completely independently, MagikFortune is even backwardly compatible with the old fortunes of the original Fortune application. Indeed many of the fortunes distributed with MagikFortune are from these original archives.
MagikFortune is extremely easy to use. We recommend when you install to configure MagikFortune to run on startup, that way a fortune is just a click away. MagikFortune can be configured to deliver fortunes on demand, at regular intervals, or whenever you log in. The rest of the time your character will simply amuse themselves and not disturb you. If you'd rather not even see your character they will happily disappear and hide in the system tray on the bottom right of your screen, out of sight but hopefully not out of mind.
