    I'd never heard the rumor/legend/story, so I thought I'd post up my ignorance and ask if anyone knew of how it got started/any good insights in to it.

    Here's the Wiki, and a quick quote:

    I found it terribly intriguing for some reason, I was an old arcade head but had long since stopped going by the 90s since there were decent consoles and when I finally got in to PC gaming I remember thinking of how bad the resolutions at the arcade were. That was the end for me.

    Interesting legend though, I'd be interested to know more or any other bits of fun from the late 80s early 90s when I was drunk for about a decade. :)

    Heh I knew you were talking about this when I read the title.
    I ve read a lot about it but it is still shrouded in mystery. So far it seems like a mix of unrelated events that created this story than a real game.
    But who knows?

    Jeff Minter's Polybius is pretty cool with PS VR. Cheap as chips too.
