Atari Age is named after the 1982–84 Atari Age magazine. AtariAge also features a searchable database of many things related to Atari video games, including manuals, packaging art, estimated rarity, screenshots, reviews and more, and also an Atari Age magazine archive. A community of homebrew developers for Atari and other classic video game systems is also hosted.[2] Some homebrew games AtariAge published first have been included in official video game compilations, such as Activision Anthology.[3]
