Atari announced Kombinera in an interview with IGN.  According to the article, "Kombinera is a new Atari IP where players take control of differently colored balls and use them and their unique abilities to work their way through over 300 environments and puzzles. The balls all move in unison, but different colors will interact with puzzles in different ways, requiring concentration and puzzle-solving to move forward."

What I like most was this quote from new Atari CEO Wade Rosen:

"We are in an interesting moment in the lifespan of Atari," he says. "It is an iconic brand that has a natural place in pop culture as much as it does games. Atari appears in film, television, art, music and fashion — and it feels natural. It belongs. Yet, despite the brand's roots in video games, today’s Atari has less presence and less relevancy in gaming culture. You might say the brand is out of balance. A modern Atari will find that balance, where its role in gaming culture is in parity with its role in pop culture."

Encouraging.

Kombinera is now live in the VCS store and also in virtually every modern gaming platform.

The early reviews are very positive. Could this puzzle game from St. Louis developers Graphite Labs & Joystick be a hit for Atari?

Game is addictive and fun! I recommend maybe smoking a jay before you start, or adding a wristband to your controller around level 40 lol
