Llamasoft Announces Polybius For PSVR

The name Polybius is one that has a strange history in the world of video games. It is somewhat of an urban legend of a game that supposedly appeared in the US for around a month in 1981 before being removed due to causing various psychological effects in people. There’s never been conclusive proof of that game’s existence, but there is a game of the same name coming to PSVR via Llamasoft.


Llamasoft’s Jeff Minter revealed the game on the PS Blog with a rather entertaining blog post about a strange night in Basingstoke, with the events of that night leading him to work on Polybius for the PSVR. He describes Polybius as a game that is actually quite relaxing, despite the amount of action that appears to be happening on screen. A release date is yet to be confirmed, but if you’re attending Play Expo then you can try out the game there.

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.


  1. Thanks for the link, it was an enjoyable read. :)

  2. The gameplay trailer gave me a headache but the background story has had me trawling google for an hour now!! Amazing, and I live just outside of Basingstoke, I want to track this illusive man down.

  3. Jeff is awesome. A bit worrying with the sheep fetish, but awesome.
