Atari Gets Down With Getting Up

Atari "Getting Up"
When it comes to the official website for the graffiti-inspired PS2 and Xbox video game Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, the writing is on the wall—literally. Created by New York-based interactive design firm Code and Theory, the site recreates the virtual city of New Radius, allowing visitors to explore the game by hitting the streets. The posters and graffiti art that cover the walls of subway stations, street signs and buildings actually lead to different sections of the site, where visitors can access character profiles, video interviews and a blog by Marc Ecko, downloadable MP3s and more. Best of all, a section dubbed Graffiti Central offers a detailed glimpse into the amazing history and culture of the urban artform, including profiles of top graffiti legends, a crash course on different graffiti styles, and a graffiti writer's "black book" filled with images of actual art.
