The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival, "ejagfest" in short, takes place on 27th November of this year in Kaarst, Germany.


The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival is an annual festival for all Atari Jaguar and Lynx fans, developers and retailers. Open-minded fans of other video game systems are welcome, of course.


The „Atari Jaguar Europe Festival“, "ejagfest" in short, takes place on 27th November of this year in Kaarst, Germany (not far from Neuss/Düsseldorf). It’s a meeting of retro gaming fans from all over Europe.

The focus of attention is Atari and all consoles of the cult lable. All of you who would like to play systems like the Jaguar, Lynx, VCS 2600, 5200, 7800 or on a trusty homecomputer of the 80s, this is the right place.


Retro games, homebrew announcements / presentations, prototypes believed to be lost and demos of all kind can be experienced on the ejagfest.

Developers from all over Europe regularly take the opportunity to present their new developments on the festival, and sometimes even have exclusive items for sale. New VCS 2600 games such as “Rasterfahndung” and “Encaved” were shown. Starcat presented projects such as “Star Alliance”, an early tech demo of “Eerievale” and released a limited ejagfest edition of his Jaguar CD title “JagMIND: Bomb Squad”. Beta-Versions of the Jaguar puzzle game “Clicks” and “Impulse X”, the new game by Matthias Domin were presented. The impressive „Atariowl Project“ for the Jaguar was presented for the first time and early exclusive screenshots of the Lynx version of Iron Solider were shown.


Another highlight was the presentation of the only working “High-res Jaguar Virtual Reality Headset” in existence, which was shown on ejagfest in the year 2007.


Competitions such as “Club Drive” or “Kasumi Ninja” make sure everyone has a fun time. Next to these fun competitions, the official European championship in “Checkered Flag” for the Lynx is taking place each year.

To make the event complete there are retro game retailers to offer Jaguar/Lynx titles and a variety of other retro games and systems.
