A journal designed with a clever package to resemble Atari's best-selling 2600 games
Officially licensed and designed to look like the original game cartridge, MISSILE COMMAND- The Atari 2600 Game Journalfeatures endpapers with color screenshots of gameplay (including an Easter egg planted by the designer) as well as an insert with instructions from the original game manual. With black-edged pages and sticker artwork showcasing the Cold War-inspired nuclear control room, MISSILE COMMAND- The Atari 2600 Game Journalis a pixilated trip down memory lane.
In 1977, Atari released their first programmable cartridge system, the VCS, in a daring attempt to bring gaming from arcade halls to living rooms. Later rebranded the Atari 2600, the gaming system became an essential part of 80's culture, selling millions of units until its remodel in 1992. Despite the variations that followed, the Atari 2600 games are seen as the pioneers of video gaming, and are the foundation for many game designs, platforms, and systems in rotation today.
ATARI is a multi-platform, global interactive entertainment and licensing company. Since its founding in 1972, Atari has been the original innovator of video gaming, owning and managing a portfolio of more than 200 games and franchises.
