PSVR New Release: Polybius VR

Jeff Minter, creator of Tempest 2000, Space Giraffe and some other trippy arcade games, has just launched his VR title exclusively for the Playstation VR! Titled “Polybius VR“, this is his spin on the video game urban legend of the same name.

Polybius VR is a 3D shooter, featuring fast and intense gameplay, but never upsetting, stressful or unpleasant for the players.

Llamasoft‘s new creation for PSVR (fully playable on non-PSVR PS4 systems too) is a re-interpretation of the legendary psychoactive arcade game Polybius.

After an encounter with the real thing (check out the story of a mysterious Basingstoke trip, some of which may or may not be true), and given the availability of current state of the art VR technology we decided it was finally time to re-create this game .. with all the good, minus the bad. We’re not out to brainwash you. But we do want to give you something that makes you feel good when you play, that takes you quickly and efficiently to “the zone” where everything flows and you feel uplifted and exhilarated.

Here’s a trailer for the game. It is up on the PS Store now (US) and on 10 May (EU).
