Read full chapters from the new Atari VCS book, Racing The beam
Steve and I have been following the progress of this book for the last few months. We don’t know the authors or have any vested interest in the title. We do though think the idea of taking a deep look inside the VCS as a platform and deeply exploring 6 genre defining games sounds very interesting and exciting (especially for Atari nerds such as ourselves).
MIT press has the PDFs of the 3 chapters available, as well as an easy to use Google Preview version.
After reading the Forward, opening chapter and index, I can’t wait for it to come out.
The book is available NOW. It can be ordered from the publishers site and Amazon.com.
