The Fortress (into virtual universes)

Report Story

Former flourishing brand Atari celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022

One promotional video for 50th Birth Year of the Atari brand

Rock by rock, or Pong by Pong

The city of games was built

With famous sounds and no song

To lie without any guilt

Under the gripping arcades

Waiting a passer-by's trades ;

The time was short to make hits

But people liked to try some

Then crises showed up by bits

So covering things have come

As financial computings

Wronged previous envisionings

Divisions happened too soon

Challengers chose a new moon

A great Job lost for Space Race

Preferred to taste an Apple

Warners alert from grapples

Even if it dropped the mace

Liberty joined the surface ...

The machine looks broken

And genius feels taken

Away - bye the Token!

Metaverse calls and ripples ...

Musical themes of Atari brand, found on the internet - tracks owned by respective owners - brand's official website
