Atari E.T. Game to Be Unearthed on Its 30th Anniversary

It appears that two events will happen within the next six months or less; an urban legend will be unmasked and we’ll find out Atari’s dirty little secret of exactly how bad the Atari E.T. game actually was. It must have monumentally horrid to cause the game company to truck the game out of state, bury it in a landfill and then cap with concrete. Pretty bad indeed. eek!

Now, 30 years after this supposedly happened, film company Fuel has made a deal with the city commission of Alamogordo to not only dig up the landfill looking for the possibly buried games, but to also film the whole thing as a documentary.
