Surely one of the more esoteric Panic Art Department side-projects ever conceived: we commissioned local artist Lukas Ketner to try the impossible, and work in a lost art style that literally nobody in the world does anymore.

The concept: what if Panic was around in 1982, and our apps were early Atari 2600 games?

We were so excited by his pitch perfect, early-80’s, watercolor-and-pencil, quasi-terrifying, super-montage output, that we just had to make some stuff with it.

And lo, Panic Retro Posters and Panic Retro Boxes are now for sale!

These alternate-universe, time-warped re-imaginings of our Mac apps make for great collectables. They’re incredibly detailed and perfectly crafted. And we think you’ll like them, even though we realize the intersection in the “Panic Fan” and “Atari 2600 Fan” venn diagram may be very, very small.
