Now of course most of you do know there was never an actual Atari 2600 cartridge produced for the Shining, the book by Stephen King nor the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film adaptation. That doesn’t mean the talented and possibly mad geniuses over at Kindertrauma didn’t feel the need to correct that mistake.
If you are a fan of the 1980 film you might recall that Room #237 is where one of the scariest scenes in the film took place…at least for me. I wasn’t aware that originally the film was going to use Room #217 just like in the book but was changed when the Timberline Lodge asked that the number be altered so as to avoid people not wanting to book #217 every again.
As for how crazy is it that The Shining could be considered as an Atari property game…just remember that Halloween and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre were made available for the 2600!
