Focus On Retro

Atari head honcho, Wade Rosen recently confirmed that the legacy console maker wants to focus on retro content, and Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story certainly seems to fit the bill.

Digital Eclipse have been the champions of retro compilations and retrospectives recently with The Making of Karateka attaining an impressive ’87’ on Metacritic. The Making of Karateka successfully managed to bring the original 1984 Karateka to a new audience while including the behind the scenes story of Jordan Mechner’s first game in an interactive documentary.

We’re excited to see what Digital Eclipse has in store for Llamasoft: The Jeff Minter Story and we can’t wait to dig deeper into the story of one of the most eccentric game developers of all time.

Jeff Minter recently helped bring the Akka Arrh Special Edition release to new generations of players when it shipped onto Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this year.
