The video game industry has seen its fair share of bizarre concepts. After all, the concept of a kart racing game starring Mario probably sounded quite odd back in 1992! Of course, that seems a lot less crazy now, and Mario Kart has become a major franchise for Nintendo, since. Pong is the latest major video game to see a similar genre swap, in the form of Pong Quest, an upcoming RPG from Atari. The publisher's announcement of the new game was mostly well met, with a number of gamers expressing a bit of bewilderment about the game's existence. Still, it seems that the game has people talking, and that might translate into interest when Pong Quest releases sometime this spring!
