Atari’s contest is exploitation of people desperate for cash or recognition. It’s a contradictive effort which its hoping no one notices. It’s taking away indie development so it benefits the corporate belly. It’s the last clutch for life from a company driven to desperation.
You’d think, with it being the big 40 for Atari this year, that we would be celebrating its contribution to the industry. In actuality, we’ll have to continue resenting its existence as it claws for another breakthrough, no matter what the cost. What a sorry state for a company to be in.
Atari is shameless, ruthless in its actions and a thorn in the side of the industry – happy to drown the youth (in this case the indie scene) so that it may use their corpses as a float. You’d hope a company that helped to found the industry would have some dignity it its final breath.
well if you put together junk your chance to win is nil .. of course they expect high quality anything else will be disregarded..
thsi thing is every entry in this scam hurts indies because it makes their behaviour right so rid the appstore of every indie game thats even in close resemblance to their ancient games just to mock the indie community (which they just rolled over) to make them new pongs at ridiculous terms..
again everyone is free todo as he wishes.. but being part of a scam is hardly something to be proud of..
