Adam is the creator of the independent experimental game Time Flows, But Does Not Return and has taken part in the Experimental Gameplay Project.
He's also the author of the political noir fantasy novel The Disillusioners:

He currently has multiple projects in the works, which may make all of them less likely to ever see the light of day.

I 'd be curious to know what legal grounds Atari thinks it has. The game isn 't called Tempest which is presumably what they hold a trademark for and there 's no law against creating a game that plays similarly to another game.
