AtariAge Magazine Archive

Fans of early Atari systems were treated with several different magazines and newsletters containing a wide variety of articles about games for their favorite Atari system, interviews with the brains behind the games, sneak peeks at games under development, and much more. Atari had the longest running of these magazines, Atari Age (no relationship to this website), which started with two black & white versions and then graduated to a full-color magazine that ran for eleven issues. Activision and Imagic both published newsletters for their fans, Activisions and Numb Thumb News, respectively. And in the late 80s, a new magazine called Atarian was created, tailored to fans of the Atari 2600, 7800 and XE Game System, but unfortunately it only lasted three issues. Atari and Activision also published magazines for their fans overseas, in the form of the Atari Club (Germany), Atari Owners Club Bulletin (UK) and Activision Fun Club News (UK).

If you're looking for Atari computer-related magazines, we highly suggest taking a run over to the Classic Computer Magazine Archive (hosted by AtariAge), where you'll find the complete text to Antic Magazine, STart Magazine, and many others.

In addition to browsing the above archives with thumbnails, you can also download the entire contents of each magazine, zipped up in either high or low resolutions. Both are good for reading, but the higher-resolution versions of each archive are better for printing. If you're on a low-bandwidth connection, we will be glad to send you CDs or a DVD encompassing all the scans for a nominal charge. Please write to us at editor@atariage.com for details.
