Watch the Atari: Game Over Documentary Trailer

July 28, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

Last year, Fuel Entertainment and Xbox Entertainment Studios gained permission excavate millions of Atari games and consoles buried in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico since the early 80’s. The forthcoming documentary Atari: Game Over will trace the history predating this unlikely dig, beginning with the game E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial — a game so bad, it’s often attributed with bringing down the entire state of the gaming industry at time. The first trailer for the film was just released at Comic Con. Watch it above.
