Atari and Gamepedia Partner to Bring Minimum Free Play Weekend and Official Wiki
May 2, 2014 – In advance of the early access release of Atari’s fast-paced, crafting-based shooter Minimum, Gamepedia has partnered with the iconic publisher to bring fans access to a Free Play Weekend alongside the official Minimum wiki. Beginning at 10 a.m. CDT on Friday, May 2nd, a limited number of free weekend keys will be distributed on Gamepedia on a first-come, first-serve basis. The keys will give players immediate access to Minimum until midnight on Sunday, May 4th.
“We’ve always been big fans of Atari and we’ve been eager to see what’s coming now that they are back in action!” said Curse Inc. Wiki Director Ben Robinson, “It’s a great opportunity for Gamepedia to be working with them to bring fans the official wiki as well as this great opportunity to check out Minimum before it hits early access.”
Set in a minimalistic stylized universe, Minimum features fast-paced, session-based combat that pits teams of five against each other with powerful, craftable weapons. Each team has its own massive robotic Titan that they must power up and support so that it can help them fight and destroy the enemy’s base. At the core of Minimum is a blueprint crafting system where players collect resources to create customized, upgradable weapons and armor that power-up during kill streaks, enabling skilled warriors and Titans to become deadlier as matches progress.
“The Gamepedia team does a great job designing and handling game wikis, so we are happy to have them managing that process for us,” said Tony Chien, Senior Director of Marketing for Atari. “They have a great audience with a ton of enthusiastic PC gamers so we wanted to include them in our Free Play Weekend leading up to early access on Steam.”
