AtariLegend is now open-source

August 9, 2020 by LynXX

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!

A chat with visual story teller Darren Doyle

December 9, 2019 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image 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.

"Weird Dreams" is something special, you might not enjoy it, it might be too frustrating, it might be too hard, but it is something you just have to see for yourself.
