Welcome to my Buy Me A Coffee/Beer page which I am using to support my website: AtariCrypt. This is 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 that only supports 'one' computer from the iconic 80s and 90s era. That's easy to answer! Unlike almost every other machine 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 act impartial - but they never are - and often blame their failure as an ST port. What??? How many ST games from the 90s are lame Amiga ports?? Argh, 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. The Atari ST is an incredible computer and, after many years, AtariCrypt is stuffed with 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?
