Atari has announced its Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration interactive experience with over 100 playable games, six new titles, and more. There are videos documenting the company’s 50-year existence featuring interviews with early designers and engineers as well as founder Nolan Bushnell and CEO Wade Rosen. Archival images, special source material, and behind-the-scenes content spanning five unique Interactive Timelines are also included.

Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration takes players on an interactive journey through 50 years of video games, including a specially-curated list of more than 100 playable classics and six entirely new titles from the award-winning team at Digital Eclipse

At the heart of The Anniversary Celebration are Interactive Timelines, which combine trivia, all-new interviews with the original developers and industry leaders, and playable games into one singular experience.

Play extremely rare titles from the Atari Jaguar and Lynx platforms, 8-bit computers, and 7800, 5200, and 2600 consoles.

Atari has had many incarnations since its debut in 1972. From Pong to its first consoles, then home PCs, arcade games, and more, it has been continually reinventing itself throughout the decades. In its current form, it describes itself as a business that includes “video games, consumer hardware, licensing, and blockchain.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
