Hysteria Project 2 Hits EU PSN Today

I’ll hold my hands up and admit that the first Hysteria Project went by me without me really noticing. So it was quite a surprise to see this announcement of a sequel.

It was even more of a surprise when I looked at the attached video and found a kind of ‘choose your own adventure’ wrapped around a horror version of Professor Layton. With plenty of gruesome death-flavoured endings for those who choose the wrong options.


Hysteria Project might only be a PlayStation mini but it looks really interesting. There’s the puzzles and clear choices to be made but on top of that, there are video sequences and 360 degree scenes to explore for clues.

It all sounds like a very interesting little game and for €1.99/£1.74 (and $1.99 when it hits the US store on AUgust 23rd) it’s got to be worth a look, right?

  1. Good idea for a mini. Tempted to try.

    • I’m really impressed with the idea. For £1.74, it’s got to be worth a go (although that’s a fiver in my PS Store wallet!)

      • Luckily for me I have a spare two pound something in my PSN wallet.

  2. Didn’t enjoy the first one so ill pass on this one

  3. i only bought the first one because of the price and found it to be so bad that it’s actually good :-D

    gonna get this

  4. I thought the first one was helerious so I’ll be back for this. Such a great idea – I wonder if they’d ever do an upscaled HD camera version one day for a bigger release.

    • i doubt the camera they made this game with had a higher resolution :-D

  5. We need more of this Penfold guy in our lives.

  6. I really liked the first one, so…sold

  7. I lol’d at the video – ” do you have the guts?” – but it sounds like a cool mini so i might check it out.

  8. Looks neat. No trophies – no deal though, the usual.

    • So you think the game looks good, but you won’t buy it simply because it dosen’t have silly trophies? That’s pretty dumb, like me saying I really like the look of the new Driver, but you can’t adjust the brightness in the options menu so I won’t bother.

  9. the first one was an interesting little title, and it looks like there’s way more gameplay in this one than there was in the first.

    bought it and i’ll give it a play on my psp later.

    tsa should feature a video from that guy every day, he’s a legend.

  10. The first one didn’t do it for me, so… no.
