Following the success of Atari’s recent indie-developed mobile titles, including Asteroids: Gunner™, Atari 's Greatest Hits and Breakout: Boost™, the Pong® Indie Developer Challenge opens the door for up-and-coming developers to deliver the next smash hit.
Atari is looking for some great developers to help bring Pong® to the App Store!
Reimagine Atari’s classic Pong® for a chance to win up to $100,000 and see your vision come to life! In addition to a full revenue-share publishing agreement including marketing and PR support, cash prizes include $50,000 for 1st place, $37,500 for 2nd place, $15,000 for 3rd place, and $5,000 to each of the remaining seven finalists.
Submit your original take on Pong® for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices today. Finalists will launch their games on the App Store later this year under the Atari brand, along with a publishing agreement and full launch support.
