In 1982 ATARI worked on a game, which in its arcade form never left the prototype phase. As the legend goes, only 3 cabinets existed, but their whereabouts are apparently unknown.

There has never been a release.

Who now feels reminded of Polybius, is not quite right, because the game's release was canceled, because it was supposedly too difficult. The name: AKKA ARRH. 👾

@willshanklin has details on a new release, which can be found over at engadget in his current article. The exciting part: Legend Jeff Minter seems to be under contract, so owners of PC, PS5 and PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and Atari VCS can look forward to a release in 2023.
