About

Welcome to my Patreon page which I'm using to support my website: AtariCrypt. It's a little place on the net dedicated to the Atari ST and Atari STe range of computers. That includes their awesome programs, pixels, music, boxes and (you've guessed it) games - both commercial & PD.

People ask why I started a website which only supports 'one' computer from the iconic 80s and 90s era. That's easy to answer! Unlike almost every other machines you can think of, the Atari ST is either ignored or poorly covered by the typical "retro gaming" websites, groups, forums, etc. This doesn't happen for computers like the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, BBC Micro, ZX81, Amstrad CPC, Amiga, any console, etc,etc,etc,etc... So why us?

It really ticks me off, just watch those YouTube videos that compare versions of games. Sure, they pretend to be impartial but they never really are - and often blame their failure on a poor ST port. What? How many ST games from the 90s are lame Amiga ports?? Come on!!

Okay, I'll end my rant! :)

So, AtariCrypt is something I began in 2014 because I was sick and tired of retro games sites/forums/groups constantly ignoring us. It is sad, annoying and wrong to live in the shadows because the Atari ST is an incredible computer and 6 years later AtariCrypt is stuffed with almost 600 articles dedicated to the Atari ST and Atari STe. Heck, even a few for the Atari Falcon, Atari Jaguar and those consoles I wish I had in the 80s. Remember the Atari 2600, 5200 and 7800?

Finally, as for the patron thing... Well, I'll be honest, I'm not entirely comfortable doing this and I'm certainly not supporting the Atari ST for the money. However, I kept on being asked many times to create this page. So here we are. Let me know what you think.

If you love the Atari ST then check us out on the interweb!!
