Here's a story that sounds like a Steven Spielberg movie -- and it is about a Steven Spielberg movie, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial. Atari created a video game based on the hit film, which is still called the worst video game ever. But here's where it gets weird: Atari reportedly attempted to bury the game -- literally -- in the desert, in New Mexico.
30 years later, Canadian gaming company Fuel Entertainment is trying to find out if the stories are true, and if so, dig it up. The BBC's Zoe Kleinman joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson with the details. Audio coming shortly.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
