News illustration image 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.

September 17, 2019 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image If there is one man who has done his share of contributions to the Atari ST scene, it must be Stefan Benz. 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.

Box scanning and buying originals!

September 13, 2019 by Marcer

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.

A big batch of rare menus on Stonish

July 4, 2019 by Brume

News illustration image This is not directly related to Atari Legend but rather its small sister site, Stonish.net. We are really proud to announce we've recently imaged most of the Supremacy menus, which is probably one of the rarest collections ever made. As great news never comes alone, we've also received many The Deliverance menus, which are really scarce, too.
The Deliverance menus are already on the site. Supremacy disks will be uploaded step by step, one per day during the holidays.
Thanks must be sent to Poliyo Soft, Razaac/Supremacy, AD/MPS, Pump/MPS, Cooper/Paradize, GT Turbo/Cerebral Vortex and Orion/Replicants for their help.
Visit the Stonish website to download all these disks and get more info on this subject.

Screenshot of Escape 2042 - The Truth Defender
Random review

I was really excited last month when Orion_, out of nowhere, posted a thread on Atari-Forum announcing his new game would be available for the STe soon. Escape 2042 wasn't coded for the STe specifically. Although the game is created in assembler and it makes use of the enhancements of the machine, it is actually already over 1 year old. It was first released in 2017 for the Sega Megadrive/Genesis, Nintendo Gameboy and the Atari Jaguar. So saying Orion_ is a great coder, seems like an understatement. This guy knows his hardware, that is for sure.

Did you know?

"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
