Christmas is coming! Elite and Atari Legend wanted to celebrate the event with a big bang. As a result, both groups teamed up to create a great advent calendar. So this year, we will offer you an unreleased or a very rare game each day.
Today Elite brings you the game Brenarvious - Aaron 2 by Top Byte. An incredible intro was coded by !Cube, who also composed a fresh, new tune. Also Prowler has drawn a great new logo for Elite. And the whole thing really rocks!
Greetings are also sent to everyone who took part in this event, especially to Mug UK who suppilied the game, and Marcer who released a great new disk!
The disk can be downloaded here. Enjoy and come back tomorrow to discover another treasure on the advent calendar!

The Silly Venture recently held in Gdansk, Poland. This year, games of very high quality have been unveiled. Among them is the amazing r0x zero, which took first place. While we recently reviewed it (you can read the full review here), the author allowed us to distribute the full game on the site.
So here we go! You can download r0x zero in both formats:
- files format for use on hard drive
- MSA format for use directly on emulator
Also here are the requirement to play:
- STe machine
- 1 MB
- Jagpad (indispensable!)
Now let's play and don't hesitate to leave a comment on the game details page, on Facebook, on Demozoo, etc.

Do you all remember the excellent Escape 2042 which was released last summer? Well, creator Orion_ has kept his promis and will be releasing a full blown boxed version of this gem.

The big box version will contain a 50 page full color manual (25 pages English, 25 pages French, including a 'making-of' chapter) and a figurine of the main hero. The game comes on 2 discs. And all this can be yours for 40 euro (There is also a 50 euro version that will include a poster) More details here.
For those who want more info on the game, read the full review here.

Thomas Ilg, the author of Anarcho Ride and Laserball 2015, is working on a new game. Frogs is an adaptation of a C64 title: after reading the title, if you said it's a new conversion of the famous game Frogger... that's not really the case.
If you want to discover the goal of the game, Thomas has published a full video on YouTube. This adaptation is STE enhanced and it looks very cool and fun. Can't wait to play it!
The game is not yet available, but we'll spread more information about this release as soon as possible. Don't also miss the interview we released some weeks ago with Thomas if you want to learn more about his previous games.

It is with a lot of pride I like to present the following interview. Atari legend Oskar Burman was the creator of the very first FPS game for the Atari STe, Substation. These days, Oskar is CEO of his own VR games development company Fast Travel Games and their first release Apex Construct is available to the public since a few months. Check out the interview for more details here.
This is not a game to play on your own; the complete lack of an AI-controlled opponent makes a single-player game very boring, only good for practice. But play it along with a few friends - the more, the better - and you get one of the most enjoyable multi-event games EVER.

In the mid 80's Atari was approached by a company called Nintendo. They asked if Atari was interested in distributing their new 8 bit system. At that time, Jack Tramiel was head of the Atari company. He declined the offer, saying Atari wanted to stop releasing consoles and focus on personal computers instead! So in the end, Nintendo had to distribute the consoles themselves ... In just a few months, they wiped Atari from the throne!
