Digging up ET-Cartridges – Atari: Game Over – Trailer

Hier der erste Trailer zur Doku um die geplatzte Gaming-Bubble in den 80ern, für die sie im April die ET-Cartridges in New Mexico ausgebuddelt hatten. Für mich als Atari2600-Besitzer (und ich hatte damals tatsächlich auch das ET-Game und nein, es war nicht das schlechteste Game ever) ist der Film ein absolutes Must-Watch.

In April, history was made in the world’s most famous garbage dump. After years of speculation spanning countless conspiracy theories, the legend was confirmed: unsold copies of the Atari game E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial were found buried deep outside the dusty town of Alamogordo, New Mexico. While the result of the dig itself was big news (after all, E.T. almost single-handedly destroyed the game industry in the early ‘80s), it’s only one part of a much larger story. That story is finally being told in the upcoming documentary “Atari: Game Over.” Featuring interviews with everyone from the creator of the game to the denizens of Alamogordo, this is one story you won’t want to miss. We’ve got our hands on the first trailer for the movie, so check it out above and be sure to watch “Atari: Game Over” when it comes to Xbox this fall.
