    I can see how this would cause ppl to be anti-game activist, that game really sucks and gives computer gaming a bad name ;)

    Looks like a pile of crap, but crap is the best that was available in 1981 so I bet at the time it must have seemed great. Even if it did hurt the eyes and contained stupid subliminal messages.

    To the earlier posters that may have been taken in : Polybius is an Urban Legend and probably comes from apocryphal stories of people having seizures playing early video games in arcades, a prototype of the vector game Tempest has also been linked to it's origin.

    As with this and other legends, what usually happens is that the stories become embellished further with more outlandish elements (men in black in this instance taking player information from the machines).

    The video on youtube is of a recreation of what it might have looked like had it existed, which it didnt!

    However I actually did once program a game that genuinely drove you insane, but aliens told me to destroy it, ahem.

    naw thats the new v6-1, im looking for the more basic looking fake where your this orange spaceship shooting blue/green amoeba blobs on a black bg and the 'creator' slave2 tells a story about it in the description section.
