Atari Game Over: New documentary rediscovers the worst game ever

We have the trailer for an upcoming film unearthing the disastrous E.T. video game and Atari’s fall from grace.

Earlier in the year, a piece of gaming folklore was put to the test as a team containing screenwriter Zak Penn took to the New Mexico desert in search of buried E.T. video game cartridges.

The ill-fated E.T. movie-tie in (widely held to be the worst game ever made) was successfully uncovered and Penn has since directed a film covering the dig and the story of Atari’s rise and fall.

A promo for the film can be seen below. This is one we’re intrigued to see.


Atari: Game Over will launch on Xbox Video later this year.
