Jeff Minter’s PlayStation VR gem Polybius is now on PC
If you happen to’re seeking to have a really hypnotic Christmas, you may be happy to know that Jeff Minter’s “trippy tunnel shooter” Polybius has come to PC. There’s non-compulsory Oculus Rift assist to push the sport to its most psychedelic and trance-inducing state, calling to thoughts the previous arcade city legend.
Having performed, loved, and reviewed Polybius on PS4 with PlayStation VR, I can adamantly say that digital actuality is one of the simplest ways to go. The screenshots in all probability look indecipherable, particularly in case you aren’t acquainted with Minter’s previous work, however within the second, with a headset on tight, all of it is smart regardless of how briskly and verging on out-of-control the degrees get. Let your arms do the considering.
Shoot stuff, pace up, and do not crash. The system nonetheless works.
I really feel like this one solely ever comes up in sure circles, however the people who dig it are over the moon. In accordance with Minter, Polybius “made again greater than its dev prices” and the sport has “finished OK.”
