New Kickstarter: Games for Atari: 1977 to 1995.

Games for Atari: 1977 to 1995.

Another Retro Book kickstarter hits the scene “Games for Atari: 1977 to 1995”, a project the author wanted to realize for a long time. The book celebrates the games for the legendary Atari 8-bit video game and computer systems:

 

Atari Video Computer System/2600
Atari 5200 SuperSystem
Atari 7800 ProSystem
Atari 8-bit Computer Series 400/800/1200XL/600XL/800XL/800XE/65XE/130XE
Atari Lynx


In its core this book is an art book, focusing on the in-game graphics, the real screenshots. You have fond memories on the early days of the interactive entertainment, the evolution and its revolution? You have played Pong at home on some clone system? You have had one of the most famous game consoles from Atari, Mattel and Coleco under the Christmas tree? Then this book is for you.

Speaking with a veteran gamer about his first game system, he most likely remembers the look of the games and says something like “Dear Lord, they looked terrible!” before going deeper into a game and talking about how innovative or good (or bad) the gameplay was. Next in the conversation you might hear quotes like “What was the name of that game again? You know the one where the knight was just a square and the dragons looked like ducks."

And that’s the point of this book. It awakes (hopefully) fond memories of times long gone, of the Atari age, when the Californian company ruled the video game world. Browse through the book and linger over games you played. And the next time your friends coming around you can pick up the book and share anecdotes and episodes about Atari and its games.
