ATARIMANIA NEEDS YOU!
There are still hundreds and hundreds of lost programs on the 8-bit and we need your help to archive them for the community! A number of these titles are just gathering dust in disk collections, sometimes as anonymous files on software menus, and it would be a shame if they got lost to time. Please check everything you have - particularly the copied stuff - and see if you can find anything from this list of programs sorted by publisher. Thanks!
