Artwork From Panic’s Failed Series of Atari 2600 Games

You knew Panic had a company blog, right? Well, they do as of today, and, of course, it is awesome. (Don’t miss the bits of subtle CSS trickery that, e.g., slightly skews the text baselines.)

These Atari 2600-style predecessors to their current software lineup are so well-done I’m at a loss for words. It’s one thing to pick apt colors and use the right typeface. It’s another to commission pitch-perfect paintings in that specific intricate style, and to actually print them up and make them real.
