Pong® Indie Developer Challenge Finalists

A big CONGRATULATIONS to all of our finalists in the Pong® Indie Developer Challenge! We are excited to review the submissions of all our finalists.

Each of the submissions selected combines innovation, creativity, fun and originality – key qualities of the original PONG. We now welcome everyone to vote on their favorite submissions below as we move to the final section of finalist rank!

We would also like to extend our deep gratitude to all of those who did not make it to the final round for their participation, creativity and hard work in our 40th anniversary event. Your submissions were all truly an inspiration, but we could only select and support a select few of the top entries.

From all of us at Atari, we'd like to once again congratulate our finalists and look forward to announcing the winners!
