Minter actually remade Tempest before when he helped create Tempest 2000 for the Atari Jaguar in 1994, but his more recent indie titles like Space Giraffe in 2007 and TxK in 2014 have all been in the semi-3D shooter style of Atari's classic arcade game. It was Minter's next project, the PlayStation 4 and VR game Polybius based upon the urban legend, that drew Trent Reznor's attention -- and the game featured prominently in Nine Inch Nails' next music video.

While Minter had gotten into legal kerfuffles with Atari over his later games' similarities to Tempest 2000, they've apparently set enough differences aside for him to helm the next version. Tempest 4000 will head to modern platforms later this year, according to Gamasutra.
