Neko Ghost, Jump! is coming to the Atari VCS as part of Atari’s partnership with Game Jolt. Under the partnership, a curated list of indie games with communities on the Game Jolt platform will be brought to market on the new Atari VCS PC/console hybrid.
Game Jolt is one of the largest and fastest growing social community and game distribution platforms in the world. 140 million people have accessed Game Jolt to play, follow, and talk about games.
With hundreds of thousands of creators from all corners of the world — ranging from young developers in their teens to large studios with millions of dollars in revenue — there are over 135,000 playable games currently available on Game Jolt.
The Atari VCS Store will feature a “Presented by Game Jolt” section to highlight titles from the platform.
“Atari and Game Jolt are hard at work bringing the unique and creative work of studios of all sizes to the Atari VCS platform,” said Michael Arzt, COO of Atari VCS and Connected Devices. “Neko Ghost, Jump! is a perfect example of the kind of hand-crafted, high-quality games that we know our Atari VCS owners will appreciate and can look forward to.”
Neko Ghost Jump! is a creative and challenging puzzle-platformer from Burgos Games, located in South Carolina. Debuting on the Atari VCS, Neko Ghost, Jump! allows players to switch between 2D and 3D perspectives on the fly, as well as a physical and ghost form, in order to solve puzzles, fight enemies and clear levels.
“It’s an exciting time to be a studio on Game Jolt, we’re working hard on bringing visibility to games both on and off of our platform thanks to our partnership with Atari,” said Game Jolt CEO Yaprak DeCarmine.
A demo of the game will be released on the Atari VCS in December. The full version launches in early 2021.
