I was the composer for an upcoming Atari 7800 / Windows game if you're interested.  Below is the original post from Atari Age.
 
***The game has been released on Steam!

An unexpected visit from the Misery Dragon has left Rikki & Vikki with two less children and significantly more inconvenience. Only by mastering a multitude of problematic puzzles can they reach the core of Misery's secret base and rescue the kinder.
 
Rikki & Vikki is a new puzzle action hybrid available for Microsoft Windows on December 26, 2018 and the Atari 7800 ProSystem on January 14, 2019. You can learn more on the Official Website and I'll keep this first post updated. Or, why not just watch the trailers here!
 
 
 
Enjoy the music? It's by RushJet1. All game footage above was captured live from a real Atari 7800 ProSystem. We'll have photos and more details on the complete package after the Microsoft Windows version's release.
 
Speaking of which, check it out on g_Steam.gif!

Cool! I know absolutely nothing about this generation of Atari. I had no idea it could look so NES-ish.

It's Rushjet!

 

I find out about all your stuff from Bandcamp as soon as it's out.  I usually don't even play the games, but I got pretty obsessed with Tadpole Tap at the time.

Yeah I'm surprised that game didn't do better than it did- it was pretty fun and addicting.

Is the Windows version the actual 7800 version with an emulator built in? (sorry for the noobish question)

Yep, that's why it's like 3 megabytes or something. I think most of that size is the help file, too.

Game looks fantastic. Can tell a lot of work was put in to this. 

 

Cool! I know absolutely nothing about this generation of Atari. I had no idea it could look so NES-ish.

 

Yeah same here. Always happy to see homebrewers on old consoles.

 

Liking this soundtrack a lot, glad to hear it is from RushJet1. It does not disappoint, and the longer tracks don't feel aimless or tiring. It sounds like you accent the the themes and situations in the game well. It sounds very VRc6. Is it whatever 7800 uses soundwise?

Ready to buy this for my 7800, which will actually give me a reason to dig it out
