Gaming preferences develop from many different origins – the games you played at your neighbor’s house growing up, the ones you received at Christmas and on birthdays – but being born in the late nineties, Atari games were never in my rotation. That’s probably because for what felt like years, the company’s output was relatively minimal compared to the early days of the storied company. Their franchises remain iconic, though; I’d wager just about everyone knows what Pong at least is, even if they’ve never played it. That inherent familiarity is powerful, and Atari’s upcoming slate of games capitalizes on it; they’re taking old favorites and finding ways to refresh them into something exciting for modern audiences.

Days of Doom

Original (5/25): Atari today announced Days of Doom the next entry in its lineup of original games. Switch will be getting it by the end of 2023.

Days of Doom, developed by SneakyBox, is a tactical turn-based roguelite that takes place in an unorthodox post-apocalyptic world. It features “quirky characters, unexpected enemies, and intense, engaging combat set against a vibrant and eerie backdrop.”


Atari today announced qomp2, a creative sequel to Pong that explores the scenario if the ball escaped the paddles. It’ll be available on Switch in 2024.

qomp2 adopts the indie game qomp from 2021, with Graphite Lab handling development. Things pick up where the story left off, telling a tale of the pursuit of freedom and personal identity. There’ll be classic two-button controls and a playfully simplistic setting that rings true to the classic Pong.
