We have just released a brand new version of the Atari Legend website. This version is able to show different releases of the games, in much more detail, as well as downloads. Currently, the DB team is working on making the first games available.
The whole site has been recoded by our developer lynXX using Bootstrap, but keeping thru to the original design. This way, we hope the project will be more accesible to other future coders. If you want to help out, let us know.
You can also find us on GITHUB if you want to participate in the future development of the project.

The highly anticipated Athanor 2 is finally available. After a long wait, it's possible to purchase the game from its main author. The first copies have just been sent, we hope to receive ours soon. We won't hesitate to review it as soon as possible.
Athanor 2 is an adventure game for Atari ST / STE / Falcon. The box, made in a very professional way, contains the two disks of the game, the instructions, but also small clues that allow you to progress in the adventure. The game is available in English and French. The full games costs 39 € including shipping to EU.
Also feel free to read the full interview we made with the author Eric Safar and the musician Mathieu Stempell.
You may order Athanor 2 at safargames website.

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the brutal passing of my friend Sydney, known as Ultrasyd. Syd was not only a talented musician but the essence of kindness and genuine humanity.

The code for the AtariLegend website is now open-source! It always was our desire for AtariLegend to be an open project, that's why we started sharing full database dumps in 2018. We wanted to open the code as well for a long time, but it took some time to reach that point. Today it's finally here, please find the source code on GitHub.
Contributions are welcome, and we hope that more developers will join us in continuing to improve the site. Also feel free to use GitHub to report bugs or if you have improvements ideas. And as usual please continue contributing to the database by submitting your reviews, game facts and comments!

The Atari ST scene doesn't pay much attention to the more serious side of things, and that is a shame, because some really amazing business applications have their roots on the ST. A few weeks ago, I met Frank Schoonjans on the Atari ST Facebook group. Frank created the spreadsheet 3D-Calc on the Atari ST. This program was added to the 'Atari business pack', a software bundle by Atari BENELUX, together with That's Write and 'Astodat IV'. Globally, the program was distributed by Michtron. Join me as we take a deeper look...
Thundercats is another game that bears a famous name, and borrows a sprite or few from some well-known source. When will people learn that this does not make for a good game? But still, there’s something special about this, impossible to put my finger on.

"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'" -- Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve Jobs, on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal computer
