    So it can be any atari made game? Or any game that appeared on the atari 2600?

    Why did they pixel blur the hands?

    I so want to get this NOOOOW!!! No one knows how much I love retro gaming!

      Dude! It was a secret that no one knew!!! You just told everyone!!!!

    That is cool but also kind of weirdly useless in a way?

    love how the cab is old school and not a modern take

    I have an idea but I can't draw to save my life. Oh man. I'm gonna try anyway.

    I'm gonna try. Key word try. My artistic skills are 100% no existent!

    So its a browser in a wooden box. Meh.

    Are multiple entries acceptable?

      No answer? Mmmhmk. I'll leave it at the one entry.

      One entry per person please. But to the people who uploaded the wrong file -- it's cool. I saw the entries. I'll chose the correct one!

    Am I allowed to enter twice? I can't find it in the T&Cs. Not being greedy (even though I reeeeeeeeeally want it) just can't decide which one to enter :)

    Well, after aching for an hour, then realising that Pitfall!, though the second best selling game on the Atari 2600 (or was it the 2800?), was technically an Activision Game and redoing it, it's in. Good luck, everyone!

      Oh, Mark, I should point out: mine did have I title while I was creating it, but I forgot to add it to the image description (it's not meant to be in the image, it's meant to be what it's called) : "Out of This World: A Trip About Reinvigorating Ideas" (see the clever acronym)

    Wow. We got some amazing entries, and they're still coming through!. Congrats and goodluck to everyone.

    Mark is gonna have a tough time judging on Friday.

    I can't sleep. So excited! I can't believe I never noticed competitions on here before :)
