Akka Arrh Announced

Old school publisher Atari announces a collaboration with old school designer Jeff Minter to develop Akka Arrh, a wave shooter coming to PC, PlayStation, Switch, and VCS early next year. The game is described as "hypnotic" and "retro-infused," qualities which are on display in the reveal trailer (Saw voice warning). Here's more on the game and its creator:
Akka Arrh combines the intrigue of an incredibly rare Atari arcade cabinet with the unique creative vision of Jeff Minter. Akka Arrh is based on an arcade prototype that was released in 1982 to a small test market. Unfortunately, the project was scrapped because players found the game too difficult. Due to its exceptionally short production run, only three Akka Arrh cabinets are still known to exist. Now, players have the chance to experience not just one of Atari’s rarest games, but one of the rarest games of the arcade era!

Jeff Minter has a storied career that includes the creation of nearly 100 games spanning almost every generation of console. Among the two dozen titles he created for Atari and Atari hardware are Tempest 2000, Tempest 3000, and Tempest 4000™. Akka Arrh embodies his signature light-synth style and ability to craft a uniquely chaotic but extremely fun arcade experience.
