Atari's Centipede is Getting A Community Led Card Game

25 April 2024
Atari are best known for their arcade games, but through it's Club Made initiative, it's inviting its community to help turn Centipede into a card game for tabletop game lovers.

What is Centipede?

Centipede was an Arcade Game made by Atari in 1981, as a fixed shooter game made by Dona Bailey and Ed Logg. It was one of the first to use a trackball, and boasted not just a female designer, which was unusual for the age, but a wide female gamer player base too. The game sees you trying to fend off incoming bugs, but whilst avoiding mushrooms causing havoc. It was also recognisable from its unique colour palette, which Bailey describes the process of finding in an interview with Forbes, made by a technician making another alteration and briefly changing the colours in the meantime. It was inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame in 2020.

Club Made Centipede Card Game 

Atari have today announced its intentions for its fans to help design the Centipede-themed card game, with community votes shaping three elements of the game, the title, the visual style, and a key game mechanic. Each aspect will be put to those signed up to the Atari Club, which you can sign up for to take part

Atari has stated they've chosen this method as it aligns with their ongoing commitment to involve the community, where Atari Club has previously designed unique clothing patches, it's now able to shape a game, which also allows it to gather valuable insights and foster ownership amongst its participants.

Centipede Game

Although that leaves us with little information on how to game will come out, it's not the first time that the beloved arcade game has been turned into a tabletop game. IDW previously gave us a Centipede game from the co-creator of Dead of Winter,  which honoured the original artwork style that had players play against each other as the centipede or the gnome, with mushrooms between you. Whilst we know Atari's approach will end up with a card game, it's as yet unclear how well developed the game is at this stage, as to whether results of the vote have been pre made, or it's still in early development. There's no word yet on potential release date, so stay tuned!

FAST EFFECTIVE WAY TO GET CURED FROM HERPES VIRUS Hello! I’m very excited to share what worked for me to everyone. I’m completely cured from my HSV1&2 with the use of natural medicine. I have used Oregano oil, Coconut oil, Acyclovir, Valacyclovir, Famciclovir and some other products/supplements and it hasn’t helped ever since I was diagnosed. I got outbreaks frequently and was completely devastated and I went online for a possible cure and how to get rid of Herpes. On a fateful day after taking my bath, I took my phone and was going through some research, I bumped into a testimonial of a Herbs doctor { Dr Awase } who cures diverse diseases/viruses with Herbal medication. I was hopeful but also doubted the claim. But after a while I thought “what do I have to lose?” so I decided to reach out. He prepared a cure using roots and herbs which I steadily took for 14days as prescribed by him. I am quite glad I decided to reach out because I am totally cured from Herpes after a medical checkup was done by my Dr. So I’ve decided to make a quick testimony for anyone out there who is probably suffering from an illness they can’t handle to reach out to Dr Awase. He specializes in curing lots of illnesses such as HIV, ENDOMETRIOSIS, PCOS, OVARIAN CYST, INFERTILITY, HEPATITIS A,B,C and lots more. I’m here to let you all know that you can also be cured just like me and you don’t have to live with any sort of illness for the rest of your life.
