IDW Games and Atari are teaming up to produce a line of tabletop games based upon the classic Atari video game titles Centipede, Asteroids and Missile Command.
“Atari is one of the hallmarks of our generation,” says Jerry Bennington, VP of New Product Development. “We’re honored with the opportunity to be able to bring the Atari classic archive to the tabletop.”
“IDW Games has a fantastic history of bringing licensed products to market, and we’re thrilled to work out a partnership and see our classic games on the tabletop,” adds Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari.
Set to capture the feel of these classic titles, the Atari line of board games are fun, intense and fast-paced. While each game in the series will play differently from the others, they will all have you nostalgic for the days of being hunched over a CRT in a dark arcade with your eyes on the prize: top of the high-score chart. The Atari series of games will launch with Centipede in the Fall of 2017 with future titles releasing intermittently shortly after.
