+ - Excavating for E.T.

Submitted by Essellion
Essellion writes: In the early 1980's Atari was rumored to have discarded an oversupply of games and possibly prototype hardware in a landfill and cemented it over. Now a company has the go ahead to excavate in that landfill and recover those items. Among the games that legend has it are there is the Atari 2600 E.T. game, infamous for how bad it was.

However, an excavator of another kind has cast doubts on how bad it was by exploring in depth the E.T. ROM, how it played and why, and designing some bug fixes for it.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
