Up until the early 1990s, Atari Games was considered one of the most creative developers of arcade games, including titles such as Marble Madness, Gauntlet, Rampart and Paperboy, as well as Breakout, which was developed under the leadership of later Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. There will also be interviews and interesting background information from developers and contemporary witnesses.

In addition, Atari promises a total of six new retro games, which are said to have been developed based on the titles from the manufacturer's most successful era. In addition to the PC, which is to be supplied via Steam and the Epic Games Store, the collection is also offered for the Atari VCS.
The history of Atari told through never-before-seen content, candid interviews, and more than 90 games, including six new titles inspired by the classics.
The game collection with 90 known and 6 new titles is to be released towards the end of the year under the name “Atari 50th – The Anniversary Celebration”. A video of around one and a half minutes should get retro fans in the mood for their journey through gaming history.
