Atari : A Visual History Book LIVE on KICKSTARTER!!!

Postby Greyfox™ » Wed Jul 04, 2018 2:48 pm

Hello everybody,

Many of you may know me and many of you may not, I was the creator of a couple of Atari digital publications a few years back. The Atari Gamer Magazine and the Atari ST Gamer Series found over @ http://www.Atarigamer.co.uk and the AtariCrypt Atari ST Magazine

I had decided that I had given the Atari community some great products to enjoy over the last few years and decided I wouldn't produce any more Atari content in the near future, but recently had seen some products that completely fitted the bill for me in a direction I wanted to go in for quite some time and have now returned and began work on a new book publication I am very passionate about I knew this had to be done because of the complete lack of the Atari 8-bit computer coverage and its incredible software in any recent publication, so with that I present to you all a new Atari publication in the works. The book also has a professional proofreader and grammar on board to make sure all those word gremlins get stamped out way before the book goes to press.

The Book Previews

When creating something like this I am all about the visuals of a product and want to give the best experience in seeing these wonderful pieces of art and code and gameplay become one, so with that each game covered in the book with include on the left a remastered image of the Box or cassette inlay artwork with a 200 word write about the game and a single screenshot of the games in action, I have chosen not to include any Offical Atari-branded games in the book due to facing a possible Cease and Desist violation order against the book that could prevent the book being released and will be going through under fair usage and investigative journalism allowing this to be successful as an Unofficial Visual History of the Atari 8-bit. This was something I decided I would do after what Atari had placed against Marc Oberhäuser and his Atari related publication. So please enjoy the previews of the some of the games that will be included in the book.

Just a brief update for those you following this wonderful project in production, I thought I'd give this a new update. So well into the 200+ page count so far and doesn't seem to be slowing down and I'm incredibly humbled by those that have contributed to the book so far and to those that have been so supportive of the project, this is going to be amazing to hold in your hands and to be able to have an Atari 8-bit of majestic proportions

So here is some recent pages created in the Gumball factory.

Update the main post..please support the project, The Atari 8-bit scene needs a great book like this, Are "WE" just gonna let the Commodore 64 and ZX spectrums books away with this? The Atari deserves this sitting amongst your book collection!
