Unearthing the Atari Graveyard: The Search for ET

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In May 2013, creative studio and game developer Fuel Entertainment was officially granted permission to excavate within a 100-acre landfill in the Alamogordo, New Mexico desert. The goal? Search for the fabled Atari E.T. Graveyard - the alleged 1983 dump site of the mother lode of video game overstocks. Along with this, they will document the process, the discovery, and the history of one of gaming's first major blunders.
In this presentation, join Fuel and the exciting soon-to-be-announced production partners involved in the dig (currently scheduled to occur within the next few months) to discuss the results, the experience, the motivations, and the mishaps of looking for the 'El Dorado' of video game culture.
This SXSW Gaming Session at the Long Center is FREE and open to the public. However SXSW Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum badges gain priority seating.
