AtarICQ is an ICQ client for Atari GEM. The application has been in development since 1999 and is written in GFABASIC, utilizing the excellent GBE-package from Lonny Pursell.

In the month of October 2012, Joakim Högberg had delivered a "pre-beta" version. Although the situation hasn%92t changed a lot, the software development has continued, and a new official version of the ICQ client is now available. The 0.176 version fixes several errors encountered, among others, in the memory management, overlay and shortcuts. AtariICQ is a program written in GFA -Basic with GBE from Lonny Pursell and runs on Atari Classic and Firebee (FireTOS, FreeMiNT). Since the 0.173 version, AtariICQ became freeware. The full list of changes and the download are available on the Atari ICQ website: AtarICQ
