Voyager had it, and did one CD-ROM using it (not done by me). That was  
Fun With Architecture, and mTropolis was chosen because the program  
needed to have a lot of building pieces on screen at once, and  
Director was limited to 48 at the time. I used it for some  
prototyping, I also entered the competition they had before it was  
released, where you had to create a project in a save-disabled version  
of the program, and send that in (try to work that out!). I won a tee- 
shirt for my entry. I only know of two other commercial CD-ROMs done  
with it, Muppet Treasure Island, and Obsidian, both of which were  
impressive.

I'm not sure what Quark had at the time that was competitive, but  
there was something, hence buying and killing the competition. This  
was all pre-OS X, so although I have copies kicking around, I can't  
easily run it. I'm not even sure it ran in OS 9. I'll try at work some  
time.
