    Atari Creep

    So my last video got me thinking WAY too much about the whole pre 8-bit multi console thing. Not sure if it would make any difference but I would love to start a small movement in that direction. I did message Hyperkin about it but not too sure where to go with this! Maybe reach out to some cool tech kats and see what is doable or not.
