Atari Pong Developer Challenge: Challenge Met! How About you?
I worked all weekend on our submission for the Atari Pong Developer Challenge, and just submitted it a few minutes ago Even though there were complaints from some people about the terms and conditions for the contest, ultimately we decided it would be a fun and challenging project to tackle.
I’m not sure if we are allowed to describe our entry (as I believe there is a public vote for the finals), but I will say this: trying to come-up with game that takes Pong into the 21st century, while trying to stay within the the nostalgic and retro ideals of 8bitrocket.com was quite a challenge.
Did any of you attempt an entry? If not, why not? We’d like to hear from you.
