Games for Atari: 1977 to 1995 Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

This is a wonderful looking project only being hampered by its presentation as regards to its book cover which is undeserving considering the content within , I'm sure it's going to do well or hope it does, simple marketing corrections should see this through and a front cover redesign..also I've a little concern over the pricing of the book too? Very expensive for a gallery book with stats.

Yeah, it's really strange that he isn't including the Jaguar given the date range. One more year and he would capture all of Atari, Corp. Most consider the classic era '72-'84. Personally, I think the Atari, Corp. years are fascinating. The Jr., XE line, 7800, ST/TT, Falcon, Lynx and Jaguar. I am still hopeful for Business is War.

Regarding the conspicuous absence of the Atari's 64-bit swan song, on FB the author indicated that he had to draw the line somewhere, the book was 700+ pages and he had little knowledge of the Jaguar. I can accept this.

 

Yeah, but you're soooooooo close ;)

 

Perhaps if you separated it into two volumes with the Warner sale dividing the content. So volume one could cover the 2600, 5200, and the 8-bit and volume two could cover the 7800, Lynx, later computers & Jaguar
