Few people remember playing E.T. The Extra Terrestrial for the Atari 2600 — but those that do will testify to it being one of the worst video games ever created. So bad, in fact, that legend holds that Atari, embarrassed by their failure, buried millions of the unsold cartridges in Alamogordo, NM in 1983. Now some
crazy people gaming enthusiasts are out to discover the truth. On April 26, Fuel Entertainment and friends — including lead designer Howard Scott Warshaw — will hold an Atari E.T. Landfill Excavation to find out whether there actually are copious copies of a long-forgotten video game buried in the ground. No matter what they find, it promises to be more interesting than most anything else you were going to do with your Saturday.
