We are moving all Atari Lynx related content over to Atari Lynx Vault and all our shop content over to K-Retro Gaming. Please update your bookmarks!

As a result of this change, the following will no longer be available: Online Lynx Emulator, Collection Tracker, Game Ratings, News. If you are interested in contributing content to Atari Lynx Vault, we are seeking editors and maintainers.

Why is this happening? First - the Atari Gamer branding is changing to K-Retro Gaming to allow us to expand to providing games, replacement parts, and mod services to other game consoles. And second - The content management system running Atari Gamer is out of date and Google AppEngine (where the website runs) will no longer allow it to run after the 30th January 2024, so in order to preserve all content we switched to a new and modern content management system and chose a website domain that better suits the subject matter. Since we are operating this website in our spare time, on top of full time family and job committments, some features had to be dropped.

Welcome to the Lynx 2020 Game Jam! Atari Gamer, in conjunction with AtariAge, ejagfest and Sillyventure, are bringing you this festive themed game jam to get some cheer, laughter and fun going into this Holiday Season!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make an Atari Lynx game within the next 15 days, to have fun and put a smile on players' faces. There are no prizes this time around, it is just for fun and enjoyment and to show off your skills.

There are some rules still, it is a contest after all!

You must -

  • Have fun ☺️
  • Submit an Atari Lynx .LNX or .LYX ROM (the ROM must run in an emulator as well as on real Lynx hardware)
  • Not violate any copyrights

    Your game must -

  • Have a holiday/festive season theme
  • Be a single screen game, but can have a separate screen for intro, menu, credits, etc.
  • Be less than 32KB (this includes the boot loader)
  • Reference "LynXmas 2020" somewhere in your game e.g. title screen

    We're not restricting you to any genres and you can make a port of a game from another system (or a homage to one), as long as the above rules are satisfied.

    So lets get started and make this Holiday Season a Retro Gaming event to remember!
