  1. Hi Everyone, For those of you that missed the Kickstarter , the book is in limited supply due to the amount of copies that where produced during the kickstarter and the book can be purchased from the website linked in my signature and resumes in January 2020 for the remainder stock, if you need a reason to get this book, I've included a small video below. Have a great Xmas and new year everyone...lots more in the pipeline.
  2. Hi everyone, Hope you had a wonderful weekend..just wanted to pop by and mention that the -=Atari: a Visual History=- book I funded back in May of this year is now available on the Greyfox Books website : www.greyfoxbooks.com for €29.99 and comes as a full colour hardback only 420 pages book covering over 150 vintage third party Atari 8-bit games as well as interviews and software house profiles as well as other amazing content. This post is for those that missed the Kickstarter and stock is of a very small amount of books I have to sell if the book. It is getting great praise at the moment and has been delivered all over the world. So please head over to the website and check out the book and see what you all think? Have a good one. Darren.
  3. Hi Rick, that is correct it is all or nothing. If the book funds I get started straight away in get the book printed and shipped to all supporters asap. I took a massive risk of actually producing and finishing the book before hand, so its a case of simply delivering to all you awesome Atari Fans 👊
  4. Many thanks for the awesome support!!. Sorry I've not been about, I'm out campaigning for the project. Again you guys are awesome. Thank you so much! 😊
  5. We are now 50% funded and only 23days left. So if you haven't jumped on board..plesse do as I feel we need this book to make it out there, its a fun nostalgic trip through the gaming world of the Atari 8-bit and is a visual feast of what was the spirit of the Atari 8-bit now in book form. Please check us out and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
  6. Many thanks. I believe in Atari as the Worlds number 1 🍻
  7. A nice little electric 80's to kickstart your interest 🤩
  8. Many thanks, Scott, this was awesome to receive an acknowledgement like this, this book is one of a kind and something I feel very strongly about and relevant to the Atari communities as with other computers getting books made for their fanbase, why not the Atari 8-bit? Hope you sign up :). All the best
  9. Many thanks, Justin, truly appreciate the support the project has received so far, this needs to happen if we are to save humanity from dreaded Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum books appearing in the future, this is our last stand 🤣 we had this, this morning from an awesome Atari 8-bit legend. Very nice to see it!

  13. Hi everybody, with working like a horse on the book, I also take the time out to keep an eye on a great many things Atari and have come across a new unofficial product produced by a guy based in Wales in England. there website cover, not just this,m but pretty much anything you could want or if it's not there they can make it for you. I have mentioned their website in the starting thread of my Atari visual history book project and reached out to them in help get awareness for this new and exciting looking 2019 calendar. The Calendar is printed paper stock weight is 170 GSM with a carded back and silk finish, promoting the best quality with a gloss front cover, at present there is a limited supply of 50 to which I believe with about 22 or so left, they may get more done if they warrant enough orders for the Calendar. So how much and where? see below and you can order yours from www.rhayadercomputers.co.uk don't delay, I'd hate for you all to miss out on this. Kind regards Darren.
  14. Hello everyone, Hope all is very well with you all and that you are relaxing in the sunshine of the Atari 8-bit scene, I firstly want to apologise for my lack on inactivity here at Atari IO, to which I have from time to time popped in to see what has been happening, but with that I have been working tirelessly every day I am off work to continue to engage with the Atari Visual History book and have had an incredible journey with it so far, I have managed to secure some exclusive interviews in the book with some revelations I was personally stunned by. I have also created a total of over 140 game spreads that with be going into the book while trying to write up the reviews for them has been if I'm honest a big dagger in my side because it's reducing my creative flair in the process and was the reasoning why I reach out to you all here in helping me and to be a part of this project with forthcoming contributors from Atari IO, I am now reaching out to you all in relation to review write-ups. I have a vast majority of games yet to have words attached to them for inclusion in the book, therefore will truly help the project become a reality far quicker than if I have to construct the reviews which could take a further 3 months before I could consider running the crowdfunding on this project. If this is something that you would be now committed too to contributing too, please, please get in touch with me via PM, I will gladly assign a selection of games to review or even if it is just one, your name goes in the book as a contributor The reviews as quite simply, a 200-210 word count, who created the game and what the games are about and your personal homage to the game. I also wish to mention that the Software company profiles I wish to include in the book are also available at this time too. These consist of "Datasoft", "English Software", "Broderbund Software" and "Synapse Software" profiles taking up about 4 pages each to consist of roughly 2,000 to 2,500 words again time is not playing well on my side at the moment and would very much love to have you guys internally involved with this project so that the planned crowdfunding stages can be set in place in March 2019 timeframe. Thanks again guys Darren. p.s. I have a collection of the original programmers of some classic Atari 8-bit title reviewing their own games within the book as something special, to say the least, as well as one of them actually proofreading the content for me as they are now technical manual writers. lol. P.s.s. @Scott, I will be in touch with you very soon now.
