So, I've got a Polybius cabinet... it's just smaller. You can jump on the KickStarter at nnerd.es/Polybius, and bag yourself your very own quarter scale Polybius arcade machine. The guys at Numskull are excellent chaps, so the hope is this video tips them over the funding goal.

  • There's a Polybius cabinet in Oregon. No ones ever had any bad experiences or seizures while playing. I think the legends started because of the graphic style. Its not raster based. Game got pulled because of massive screen burn in.

  • Polybius was not a myth or fake. If the name is wrong, there were units in arcades into the 1990's. There were news stories about it. People had headaches and were affected when playing it. It was possible to play it for a long time and get good at it. The CIA and other spy agencies around the world do tests and have de-classified documents.

  • Full sized arcade cabinet [ ] Has the polybius game on it [ ] Can run other games on it [ ] Basically just a kids toy that won't be fun for more than a minute or two. And not more than 10 to a kid with lots patience and imagination. I think its the main reason people dislike the video. I expected something proper. If they had made a full sized cabinet that ran of a raspberry pi board and that shipped with a polybius game that would have been an interesting project for an interesting video. Because then you can get something interesting out of it. But this thing is not a proper cabinet and its not even a game.

The guy creates unique, quality content for you all - which you view FOR FREE but the moment there's something to have a moan about you're on it like a shot. Anyone would think he just broke into your houses and pissed on your kids. Of all the click-baity, lazy content creators that just put out dross to their followers and you all choose to whinge about this? Embarrassing!

    • ​@Light i can see theres no really any point in me arguing with you, as your example of "proof that barack obamas real name is barack obema" is ridiculous, and the way you round of your comment "that its common knowledge that polybius doesn't actually exist unless you're a lobotomized goldfish" honestly, you sound like you have the mental maturity level of a 10 year old feel free to get the last word in against me if you want, but im not gonna waste my time with this convo (specifically with you) anymore

      EnderCryptEnderCrypt6 maanden geleden
    • @EnderCrypt then if i made a video called "proof that barack obamas real name is barack obema" would that be clickbait i dont think so because its common knowledge that its barack obama and not barack obema in the same way that its common knowledge that polybius doesn't actually exist unless you're a lobotomized goldfish

      LightLight6 maanden geleden
    • @Light that doesent make it any less clicbait, clickbait is when something (a title/thumbnail etc) tries to draw overt attention by using misleading/lying information it doesent matter if people "know" something already, clickbait more than often intended to make people doubt themself and click or just "click to make sure, just incase" your argument that "its not clickbait everyone knows it's a myth" would be just like justifying say.. scamming, because: "its not scamming, everyone already knows these tricks"

  • I got to play a full size Polybius a couple years ago at the Free Play Florida videogame convention. It was well done, and the game itself was pretty fun. Vaguely like Tempest, but with subliminal messages and other little details. I was expecting this video to be about that machine. Instead it's about an expensive quarter scale USB power hub? Nah.
