Qomp2 has been announced

Ever wanted to expand the story of the seminal classic Pong? No?! We can’t blame you – it doesn’t seem like there was a huge amount of backstory behind the tennis-like title. However, Atari believes there is a tale to tell, with qomp2.

This is the sequel to 2021’s indie game qomp, and challenges you to escape the world of Pong, controlling the humble white ball.

Challenging Levels

Partnering up with Graphite Labs, Atari are bringing this game to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, PC, mobile and the Atari VCS. Broken free from its hell between two paddles, your goal is to guide the Pong ball through a variety of hazardous levels. With a number of ‘harder than they look’ challenges, each level will contain a number of spikes, enemies and other obstacles.

With simple controls, each tap of the action button will change your direction by 45 degrees; hold the button to quickly dash forward. It’s simple stuff, meaning that your reflexes are the ones truly tested!

Atari are delighted to explore the simple but exciting gameplay of Pong once again. Wade Rosen – Chairman and CEO of Atari – had this to say on the announcement of qomp2:

It’s been over 50 years and the simple, joyful gameplay of Pong still captivates players and game developers… With qomp2, I am glad we’re able to continue the creative and thoughtful storytelling that qomp introduced.

Key Features

  • Cerebral Puzzling: The simple, two-button controls belie complex and compelling gameplay. Use your reflexes to think ahead and master 30 tricky levels. Hidden collectibles on the map push you to explore every inch of the creatively rich minimalist environment.
  • Bounce Between Emotions: qomp2 is an enigmatic story of doubt, fear, and self-acceptance, told wordlessly with simple animations, effects, and the game mechanics themselves — a surprising twist based on the classic Pong.
  • Surprises Galore: If the game’s premise doesn’t raise an eyebrow, just wait until you dive into the challenges, which get increasingly difficult as you master new aspects of gameplay. And don’t worry, death is not the end in this arcade-inspired world. Quick respawn makes sure you’re back in the action in seconds. 
  • Bountiful Bosses: Four bosses block your escape at the end of each world. Use your newfound skills to master their attacks and defenses in order to move on. Much like a real game of Pong, you must be prepared to defend your position!  

A 2024 Release

qomp2 will arrive on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Switch, PC, mobile platforms and Atari VCS. Check it out on the Xbox Store.

We will of course keep you updated with the game’s progress.

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
