Light Pong is the world's first 1-dimensional game console. The most epic new addition to your Saturday night that you didn't even know you needed. Play solo or challenge a friend on one of the many games; pick it up and play - whether you're 6 or 106; light up the room with awesome lighting effects. Endless fun, anywhere. Light Pong’s games are programmed on a single line, which is why we call it a 1D console. Light Pong is the console for easy-to-play games that still involve mastery.

Light Pong was designed to be simple of course, but we still wanted to create something dynamic and open to customization. Enter the Companion App. Not only will the app allow you to play other games, it will also let you customize Light Pong in creative ways such as choosing the light colors, or switching to ambient mode. Compatible with Android and iOS, the Companion App is also high in utility.
Developers will be able to take their games, put them in a virtual cartridge, and upload them to our online marketplace. Once there, other users will be able to find games and upload the cartridges straight to their Light Pong units - using the Light Pong Companion App! This means that even if you have no interest in developing games for Light Pong, you will still have easy access to new and original content from other developers right at your fingertips.
