    Greyfox got a reaction from Paul Westphal in Atari ST top ten Shoot'em up   
    Lol that's what happen when you have the scope of a goldfish regarding software for the ST machine, most ST users or should I say the majority of them only ever experienced the main stream titles and had fuck all clue what was outside the confines of there home town computer store, regardless of what the magazines where showcasing it simply didn't compete with the big software houses unless they released them, so this is how limited a lot of so called ST expert wannabes are, which is a total lost to them never going to have experienced the fun and excitement we did back then.
     
    The St was incredibly verse in its software a lot more than people give it credit for, that is why we are here to say different. I just hate educating the self proclaimed supremo's in my book the lame-o's
     
    Kudos pal.

    Some great reading to be had here fella.
     
    and as part of my return to doing game reviews, if it's okay with you, I'd like to share the first video produced after some 6 years lol.
     
    I'm not You tube spamming with the latest content, well I am, amid I? sorry about that, I'm hoping to cover some great titles on the ST Machine and hopefully not main stream amongst other formats too like th A8 and Amiga
     
    but here's the latest peace offering .

    Greyfox got a reaction from RickR in Atari : A Visual History Book is LIVE on Kickstarter   
    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.

    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 👊

    Just a dumb question here from someone that doesn't know Kickstarter at all.  If the goal isn't met, are contributions refunded?
    Thank you!

    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.

    Hello everybody,

    Many of you may know me and many of you may not, I was the creator of a couple of Atari digital publications a few years back. The Atari Gamer Magazine and the Atari ST Gamer Series found over @ http://www.Atarigamer.co.uk and the AtariCrypt Atari ST Magazine which can be found for free here: https://ataricrypt.b...t-magazine.html


    I had decided that I had given the Atari community some great product to enjoy and decided I wouldn't produce any more Atari content in the near future, but recently had seen some products that completely fit the bill in a direction I wanted to go in for quite some time and have returned and began work on a new book publication I am very passionate about and just knew this had to be done due to the complete lack of the Atari 8-bit computer range and its incredible software, so with that I present to you all a new Atari publication in the works.


     

    Please support us today! : http://kck.st/2VWXiNo
    The Book Previews When creating something like this I am all about the visuals of a product and want to give the best experience in seeing these wonderful pieces of art and code and gameplay become one, so with that each game covered in the book with include on the left a remastered image of the Box or cassette inlay artwork with a 200 word write about the game and a single screenshot of the games in action, I have chosen not to include any Offical Atari-branded games in the book due to facing a possible Cease and Desist violation order against the book that could prevent the book being released and will be going through under fair usage and investigative journalism allowing this to be successful as an Unofficial Visual History of the Atari 8-bit. This was something I decided I would do after what Atari had placed against Marc Oberhäuser and his Atari related publication. So please enjoy the previews of the some of the games that will be included in the book.

    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.
