Atari® — one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — is elated to announce the release of Atari Mania, a past-meets-present romp through some of the company’s most beloved titles. Available today on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Atari VCS, Atari Mania sees players face off against the dreaded “dead pixels”, agents of chaos who aim to corrupt the beloved Atari titles of decades past.
Atari Mania is a fun, retro-fueled mashup of classic Atari titles that pays homage to the company’s role in video game history — timed perfectly for Atari’s 50th anniversary. Acting as the Caretaker of the Atari Vault, players must journey through corrupted, mixed-up versions of classic titles, beating microgames in order to restore order to the discord that’s been sewn. Along the way, players will come across familiar faces…but after the corruption, are they friend or foe? Overcome the challenging minigames, defeat the “dead pixels” in grueling boss battles, re-establish peace, and maybe even discover some easter eggs in this nostalgic-yet-new release!
