I have been a long time fan of Darren Doyle. This scener is responsible for the amazing Atari ST Gamer magazine and the Atari Crypt magazine. I love his visual style, which reminds me of the good ol' days of computer magazines. A few weeks ago the result of his succesfull Kickstarter, the book Atari : A Visual History, was brought to my door by the postman. What an amazing treat. Enjoy this indepth interview in which Darren talks about his experiences in starting a publishing company for books and retro games.

Last week a nice package came in the mail. Finally, the 2 volumes of We Love Atari made it to my doorstep. These books by Karl Morris ooze passion and a true love for Atari. I was so impressed by the depth and amount of historical detail found in these books, I just had to contact Karl for an interview to find out how it all started.

Dma-Sc is a nick that regularly pops up in the scene. In real life, this chip musician goes by the name of Mathieu Stempell. I met Mathieu at the STNICCC party in 2015 and while he is one of the most important Atari ST chiptuners of the past years, he has such a nice and down to earth personality. Check out the interview to learn more about his past and his future plans.

He is the founder of projects like Fading Twilight and Fujiology, main Atari ST archivist at demozoo.org, full time YM Rocker and member of The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. He has been creating chiptunes since the early 90's and has recently released his first synthwave album called Laser Days.

In the last few months, I was lucky enough to borrow Krilar's complete originals collection, for dumping and box-scanning.
Now he has got into dumping and scanning too and he has supplied his own preservation dumps too. Many thanks mate!!
Meanwhile, whilst I was working out the original games, a small devil woke up inside me.
- Hey some boxes are cool.
- Hello Ebay!
Now i have started to collect and buy original games like a madman.
The majority of the games I personally try to buy are missing from our database, nor are they available elsewhere.
So work is going on in the shadows here on Atari Legend. We are beavering away to get as much information, box scans and preparations for the hosting of these original disk dumps are on-going.

When I grew up, multi-player games contained two players sitting around the screen. That was what the Atari ST was made for, and we enjoyed the crap out of it. But what about 4-player games, is that even possible? No problem according to Thomas Ilg, and he proves this with his brand new release of Frogs.
