ATARI: GAME OVER
Original Release date: November 20th, 2014
From its meteoric rise to its devastating collapse, director Zak Penn tells the story of Atari, one of the most culturally iconic video game development companies from the 70's and early 80's. Culminating in the rumored burial of millions of ET game cartridges which the company could not sell, Atari's legacy after the gaming collapse of 1983 is one that is both infamous and shrouded in mystery. Zak Penn excavates the popularity and controversy of Atari's past before trekking out to the New Mexico desert, where he hopes to excavate an unlikely time capsule: dusty stock piles of the "worst game ever created".
"Penn takes a playful yet in-depth approach" -- Den of Geek
