What Is This?

     HEY YOU!  You ever play Atari!?  OF COURSE NOT!  You're probably like 18 or something.  You don't even know what an Atari is.  Well let me tell you boy, this old console's got a CRAZY number of games.  Only problem is they're old, and you're not.  So let's fix that!  In this game jam, you must reimagine any Atari 2600 game of your choice.  Your job is to show me what an Atari game of your choice would look like if you made it today.  Every entry submitted to this game jam will be played LIVE on Highsight's gaming channel on Twitch.  Your game will be given a ranking by Highsight, and will be critiqued to the best of his (and most likely his audience's) ability.  NO SKILL REQUIRED FOR THIS GAME JAM.  JUST HAVE FUN!
