For those of you who may remember, we previously reported on a secret solo project coming from James Montagna, a key Wayforward employee. We now know that the project is called Dot Arcade and will feature three extremely simplistic arcade style games meant to remind gamers of the golden age of arcades.

The first game on offer will be called Mr. Snake and will task players with playing a game of Snake with the added challenge of having to dodge obstacles that appear around the field. The second game will be Dodge Club, which will see players assuming the role of a dancer and navigating a dangerous dance floor. The last game will be Rally Driver, which will see players racing down a track while dodging other cars. All of these will be presented on a retro, 8x8 dot matrix grid.

Though the games on offer here may look a bit simple, it seems like there’ll be just enough here to justify the $4.99 price tag. We’ll be sure to get a review up to share our thoughts when it launches next week.
