Bouncing balls, scattering ghosts and fleets of aliens… it’s part of our gaming heritage. Atari were there at the beginning of the videogame golden age, and have become legends. So don’t hide away your Atari fixation in the back of your closet like an embarrassed teenager: wear it out loud and proud with a bold T-shirt made to the same exceptional quality as the games themselves.
Pong, Battlezone, Asteroids, Firefox, Tetris – the names that make up history were all hatched at Atari HQ, and the fact that they’re still being played today is a tribute to the incredibly high standards of gameplay they built in to each as standard.
Whether you’re parading your fond memories of the original 2600 games console that blazed the trail for today’s super-fast machines, or harking back to the days of the Atari ST – the home computer that spawned a generation of DIY electro composers – let the world know you love Atari.
The new black is...
Each tee hits the high standards you’d expect from videogame royalty. The printed logo appears with a worn-in, distressed look that speaks of thousands of man-hours spent dropping twenty pence pieces into arcade cabinets. They’re made from 100% cotton that stays comfy no matter how much you’re sweating over Pac Man, and the neck contains lycra to prevent the shirt bagging when you take it on and off – or when you stick your head inside and run around the house in a victory roll!
The distress effect
Pre-shrunk and colourfast, the Atari T-shirt will become as legendary as the games and consoles it represents – and with a build quality like this, it should last just as long. You may not get unlimited lives to wear it out, though!
