NEW YORK, NY, March 22, 2007 – Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR), one of the world's most recognized brands and leading third-party video game publisher, today announced that Silverfall®, a dynamic 3D action role-playing game (RPG), has arrived at retailers across North America. Developed by Monte Cristo Games, Silverfall is rated T for Teen and is available for the Windows platform at a suggested retail price of $39.95.
