The headline just about says it all. After the recent announcement that filmmakers were prepping to do a legit archaeological excavation of the New Mexico landfill where it had long been rumored that Atari dumped copies of it’s notorious failure, E.T. – The Extra-terrestrial, the mystery has been solved.

Yesterday afternoon, workers in Alamogordo, NM discovered that this story was no mere legend, as copies of the game, along with CENTIPEDE, SPACE INVADERS and more, were all there. Filmmaker Zak Penn was on-hand to announce the find, with the full story set to unfold in the documentary, ATARI: GAME OVER (working title), when it makes it’s debut on Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this year.
