Today's the day!

Hey Folks,

Today's the big day - our labor of love, 8-BIT GENERATION: THE COMMODORE WARS is finally here! Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, production and yearlong tour across the globe - from Berlin to Boston, Bratislava and more, it's a pleasure to share with you our long-awaited work featuring computing legends like Jack and Leonard Tramiel, Chuck Peddle, Nolan Bushnell, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Bil Herd and more!

Documenting the 8-Bit personal computing movement, we hope our film provides some context into not just the wider tech revolution, but early days of gaming and the foundation of classic systems such as Atari along with the brilliant minds who made it all possible. We look forward to sharing more 8-Bit news here soon enough!

Happy Holidays!

- Team 8-Bit

About This Video

When Jack Tramiel invented Commodore in the 1970’s, he envisioned computing for the masses and not just the upper classes. Spearheading the personal technology revolution and combatting giants like Apple and IBM, Commodore became a household name by changing the way in which we interact, create and play with computers. From the advent of the groundbreaking Atari and Tetris games to the evolution of contemporary technological design, 8 Bit Generation dives into the home computer explosion and explores Commodore’s key role in shaping the future in which we now live.
