The Atari Jaguar Europe Festival, "ejagfest" in short, takes place on November 15th and 16th of this year in Duisburg (near Düsseldorf), Germany. We celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Atari Lynx this year which has been released 25 years ago in 1989.
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, too.
The „Atari Jaguar Europe Festival is 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 again on 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. Another highlight was the presentation of the only working “High-res Jaguar Virtual Reality Headset” in existence, which was shown for the first time in Europe on the 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.
This year is the event‘s 14th anniversary and takes place for the 3rd time in Duisburg near Düsseldorf. In 2014 we celebrate the 25th birthday of the Atari Lynx, it was released 1989 in the USA. Let's celebrate Atari!
