Hello from Germany


Recommended Posts



i am an Atari Kid from Germany. I had gotten my first Atari 2600 on X-Mas 1981. After celebrating the Blog Shows, I was ready to become a member of Atari.io.


Seeing the shows was as meeting old friends of the old golden days. I am a collector of Atari Consoles and a writer of af a german Retro-Magazine called RETURN. We write about new Software and Hardware for old Systems like Atari XL/XE 2600, Colecovision and C64.


In the old day, Atari was THE anything-goes-company who had promised a utopic future for mankind. Only the sound of the word "Atari" brings back fond memories to , So i am glad to find a community which have similar feelings about Atari.


For now i wish all of you a merry christmas and a happy and successfull 2017!!!


Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland!

Thanks for all the nice comments. :vulcan_salute:


First of all, please excuse my worse english, i have only few chances to talk and speak, so it feels like walking on high heels. Oh, a rhyme. B)


Ok, Mr. Ballblazer. All had started with a Atari 2600 (what else!) on Christmas 1981. My next Console was the Atari Jaguar in 1995. Later i had bought the Lynx, the 7800 and three years ago the Atari 5200, which wasn't sold in old Europe. But i also collect for Colecovision, Intellivision, Vectrex and all of Sega and Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft, 3DO. I own a CD32, because it is a nice little funbringer. But you know the song: We will never forget our first love!



You can get news about Return on our homepage https://www.return-magazin.de/. So far it's only in german. We try to produce an english PDF-version, but this is expensive and difficult. It's only a hobby project for the most of us and so there is no big money to earn and to invest.


Btw: Please check out Sam's Journey, a new plattformer for the C64. i am sure, you will love it. It is announced for next year.
