Dig for Atari E.T. Games gets the Go-Ahead

The excavation of a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico, where millions of copies of unpopular Atari 2600 game E.T. are supposedly buried, has finally been given the go-ahead by the New Mexico Environmental Department. The dig was recently delayed over concerns of potentially hazardous chemicals found at the site, however the NMED is now satisfied that there is no immediate danger unless a person is exposed over a “very extended amount of time”.

If you thought your nightmares were buried, you were wrong.

The NMED also said the original excavation plan was too vague but are now happy providing they are given five days notice before digging begins and that all waste haulers are certified.

Lightbox Entertainment and Fuelbox Entertainment are behind the excavation which is to be filmed for a documentary about the rise and fall of Atari. It is being directed by X2 writer Zak Penn and will be available exclusively on Xbox 360 and Xbox One later this year.
