Based on the well-known urban legend of the same name.
Llamasoft, developer of the acclaimed indie hits 'Space Giraffe' and 'TxK' have announced that they will be developing 'Polybius', a psychedelic arcade shooter that will be released exclusively on PSVR, with no given release date announced so far. You can check out some gameplay and the game's title screen below:
For those who don't know, 'Polybius' is the name of a game mentioned in urban legends which induced unpleasant side effects in players such as amnesia, night terrors, and insomnia. One month after it was released, it apparently dissappeared without a trace. Jeff Minter, head of Llamasoft, hopes to recreate some of the game's psychedelic effects, but without the more negative aspects, leaving what he hopes will be a relaxing experience for players.
The connection to the urban legend is very amusing, and visually sumptuous games such as this and 'Rez Infinite' are easily the biggest draws to VR for me right now. Here's hoping this turns out well when it releases in the near future.
