Do you live within driving distance of Sunnyvale, California? Do you love Atari? Well then you might want to check out the upcoming Atari Part at the Sunnyvale Library on June 14th. The “Atari Party” is free event celebrating decades of video game and computing history of Atari. The event has been held annually since 2009, typically in Davis, California. This year, Atari Party once again migrates to Sunnyvale, California (long-time home to Atari, Inc. and Atari Corp.), where it’s being hosted by the Sunnyvale Public Library.
For 6 fun hours, the library will be host to:
– Classic Atari video game consoles and handhelds
– Classic Atari 8-bit and 16-bit home computers
– Real-life Atari arcade games
– Other classic and modern video game consoles, running Atari video games
– Modern PCs running emulated Atari games
– Guest speakers
So come play timeless classics — like Asteroids, Pitfall!, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and many others — along with less well-known titles from the 1970s-1990s, plus modern homebrew games!
The event is free and open to the general public from 10am-4pm. For more information visit the official Atari Party 2014 event site.
