We've just added six new games to the AtariAge Store for pre-ordering! These new games were available for the first time at the recent 2017 Portland Retro Gaming Expo, and we're now making them available for everyone! We have three new Atari 2600 games and three new games for the Atari Jaguar! The three new Atari 2600 games are Super Cobra ArcadeSpace Cactus Canyon, and Draconian. And the three new Jaguar games are Jeff Minter ClassicsEscape 2042AstroStorm.
 
Click on the following game images to learn more about each game (including video and screenshots):

Jaguar_JeffMinterClassics_Box_front_news      Jaguar_Escape2042_Box_front_news.jpg      Jaguar_AstroStorm_Box_front_news.jpg

 
All six new games feature high-quality, professionally printed boxes, manuals and labels. Draconian, Super Cobra Arcade and Jeff Minter Classics include a poster featuring the box art for each game (and the Jeff Minter Classics poster is double-sided!

Pre-ordering for these games will run through the end of November. Games will ship in early December and should arrive in time for Christmas for anyone inside the United States.

The store will calculate postage based on the weight of the games you order. You can add the games you are interested in buying to your shopping cart and then begin the checkout process. The store will allow you to see the shipping costs before you need to pay.

Would like to pre-order Draconian. One question, is Draconian NTSC only? I don't see an option for PAL or PAL60.

Draconian supports NTSC, PAL60 and SECAM60.  :)

I don't think the "estimate shipping" for international destinations works in the shopping cart before you check out.  You'll need to begin the checkout process, choose the shipping address and you'll be able to see the shipping costs before the payment step.

Draconian auto-detects your console and will automatically switch between NTSC, PAL60 and SECAM60.  There's a menu option that allows you to override it if the console is detected incorrectly.
 
If you'd like info on how that works check these two blog entries:

I just had to order Space Cactus Canyon so that I could bring it home to the scorching deserts of Alberta. Note to everyone: current temperature: -15C. With snow. Lots and lots of snow. :D

Even a Space Cactus won't stand a chance in such a harsh environment. ;)
