Atari Announces the $100,000 Pong Indie Developer Challenge

Pong was one of the first arcade games that ever hit the market. With all those little beeps and boops, you might have thought that such a game couldn’t have been so intense. While it’s not exactly the most thrilling game by todays standards, it was certainly interesting enough to maintain popularity so that it is still known in the gaming world.

Atari has not been idle since they released Pong in 1972, giving us things like Neverwinter Nights and The Witcher 2. However, sometimes it’s nice to return to your roots. The only problem being that redesigning a game like Pong would take a lot of money and time that the company likely doesn’t have.

With this in mind, they instead have made a contest to seek out aspiring independent developers. This contest is looking to bring the beloved Pong to the App Store, and gives you the chance to win up to $100,000 in the process. Go here to enter, and don’t procrastinate, as the entry period ends on March 31st of this year.
