Atari® XP is a publisher of collectible, physical games beginning with never-released and rare Atari games from the 1970s and 1980s.
All our game cartridges are newly made in the United States of high-quality materials and manufactured to exacting standards. Limited edition versions will include premium packaging and extras that will delight collectors and fans of the titles.
Games that were completed but never received an official release, or were only released in very limited quantities.
Games for which physical media has become extremely rare, and therefore hard to find.
A wide variety of classic games that would benefit from small improvements to graphic rendering on modern devices and the smoothness and accuracy of controls. These games will be carefully ‘reconditioned’ and then re-released.
The AtariXP name is a tribute to the Atari Program Exchange (APX), which sold software through a mail order catalog in the 1970s and 1980s. The quarterly APX catalog had a loyal following of owners of Atari's 8-bit home computers.
APX encouraged both professional and amateur programmers to submit software to be considered for commercial distribution, and by doing so encouraged a wave of game and application development. That spirit lives on in the retro hardware and homebrew development community.
