Atari Flips Lid For Sid!
Shoots Higher With Meier!
Wednesday night, Atari proclaimed an alliance with Firaxis and that company’s renowned creative guru, Sid Meier. This declaration lends authority to Atari’s obvious efforts towards reinventing itself.
Many of Meier’s esteemed titles, most notably Pirates, will be re-released in augmented, reconfigured forms.
The unassuming Meier seemed philosophical about events. “I write games, actually, that I like to play… so I’m not trying to live up to, I guess, someone else’s expectation. I love playing games. I love designing games. I love writing games. I can’t imagine a better job.”
These events demonstrate that what’s old always becomes new again.
