The final sale results totaled a staggering $107,930.15. The city of Alamogordo will receive $65,037.78 and the Tularosa Basin Historical Society will get $16,259.44. Expenses like shipping fees totaled $26,632.93.

Lewandowski said there's still 297 cartridges left that he's holding in an archive. What's to become of them is still unknown at this time.

"There's 297 we're still holding in an archive that we'll sell at a later date when we decide what to do with them," he said. "I might sell those if a second movie comes out but for now we're just holding them. The film company got 100 games, 23 went to museums and we had 881 that we actually sold. They were sold in 45 states and 14 countries."

The Atari cartridges made their way to several museums around the world such as the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, the Hamilton Toy Museum in Ontario, Canada, and the Deutsches Film Museum in Frankfurt, Germany.
