Tim Duarte

Tim is the web editor and co-founder of the print newsletter, which was established in 1990 with the help of Russ Perry Jr. At the time, there was no organization that supported the Atari 2600, and Tim had a strong urge to create a "voice" for the collectors, owners, and fans of the Atari 2600 videogame system. Tim was the printed newsletter editor from 1990-1998. He published issues 1 through 50 and still offers these for sale as Back Issues. In July 2008, Tim contacted Al Backiel and pitched him the idea of doing something special for issue #100. The idea: a game. Tim conceived and designed the idea for Mean Santa on paper. He then got in touch with programmer John K. Harvey to create and code the game based on his vision. In October 2009, Mean Santa was officially released. Mean Santa is still available for sale today. A version for the Magnavox Odyssey2 was released in December 2016. Tim is a graduate of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and currently works as an Information Technology professional.
