Atari Anniversary Series: Old Consoles Never Die
Speakers: Tim Lapetino, Howard Scott Warshaw, Darrell Spice Jr. and John Champeau
Description: Part of our Atari 2600 Anniversary Panel Series, "The Art of Atari" author Tim Lapetino will moderate this panel exploring the continued appeal of writing new games for the Atari 2600 and other classic game consoles. Tim is joined by Howard Scott Warshaw, creator of two of the most iconic Atari games ever written: E.T. and Yar's Revenge. Also on hand are long-time homebrew game designers Darrell Spice Jr. and John Champeau whose games, many of which are published by AtariAge.com, push the boundaries of what was thought possible on the 2600 hardware.
