Old Video Game Press Releases Were Cool

These days, press releases are awful things. Full of subject lines like MEDIA ALERT, obnoxious jargon and endless fine print. Back in 1990, things were a lot simpler.

This is a photo of a press release for Rubicon, a shooter released for the Atari ST, Amiga and Commodore 64. It's set in the distant future of 2011! The Soviet Union still exists!

It's such a cool press release. It's short, simple and to-the-point. Most of it is spent talking about the story, not the basic gameplay. And it even finds room to fully credit everyone involved.
