Atari announces Tempest 4000, Jeff Minter involved

The very first thing I posted on Destructoid as a staff writer was a love letter to Jeff Minter, the creator of Tempest 2000 for the Atari Jaguar, the “visualizer” you see on many consoles and PCs when you put a music CD in, and...

Man finds rare Atari 2700 prototype at thrift store

Atari has been in the news a lot lately, whether it be their new console, presence in the Blade Runner sequel, or not at all incredibly stupid speaker hats. This time the story is less about Atari's new brand and more about the old one. Red...

What? Atari is working on a new console

A lot of you probably didn't even know Atari had put out a teaser for a new console, much less confirmed it at E3, but that's just what they did. According to CEO Fred Chesnais in an interview with VentureBeat, Atari is "back in the hardwar...

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...

RollerCoaster Tycoon World hits Steam Early Access

RollerCoaster Tycoon World has been a long time coming, and it's still not here yet -- not fully. After multiple delays and even some development studio switching on publisher Atari's end, the game released today on Steam Early Access with ...

100-game Atari collection now available on PC

Remember when Atari games used to be good? Yeah, me neither. It was before my time, you see. I'm more familiar with the Atari that has spent the past couple decades floundering, changing hands, bullying indies, and remaining afloat by explo...

RollerCoaster Tycoon World will make it this year

If there's one game left this year that I truly hope turns out well, it's RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Now that Atari is on its third developer, Nvizzio Creations, and has a release date (December 10, 2015), my hope is that everything will f...

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks way better

The last time I wrote about RollerCoaster Tycoon World, I said the game looked bad. Because, well, it did. I was hardly the only one, writer or otherwise, to say as much. Atari certainly heard. Flash forward to now, and we've got a far bett...

Atari's buggy, unfinished Asteroids MMO is out now

Atari has taken a break from bullying indie developers to release Asteroids: Outpost, a gross and twisted cash-in on the beloved space shooter that first delighted arcade patrons in 1979. The "open world sandbox survival game" landed on Ste...

Atari bullying indie developer behind Tempest 2000

Atari thought it was "absolutely rubbish," the Jaguar designer told developer Jeff Minter in 1993. The man felt compelled to pull Minter aside at the console's launch party and let him know how little Atari thought of Minter's latest creati...

RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks rough

Mmm. There's no getting around it: RollerCoaster Tycoon World looks bad. I thought my expectations for the graphics were reasonable -- I've seen screenshots and they seemed adequate, if dated -- but in motion everything has become clear. Y...

 
 
ATARI REBOOT photo

What old Atari games do you want to see rebooted?

Asteroids is back. Well, sort of. Atari (or whatever company is calling itself Atari these days) is reviving the classic 1979 shooter as an open-world survival MMO for some reason. Money, probably. Also a complete and utter lack of sha...

Atari is making a new Asteroids game (Yes, really!)

Atari just announced a new Asteroids game. No, you guys, I'm being serious. Stop laughing!  Asteroids: Outpost, as it's called, is described as an open-world MMO with survivalist gameplay. The experience casts players in the role of co...
