Location: Portland, Oregon
In a few Portland arcades a mysterious video game appears titled "Polybius". The game becomes popular and due to it's addictive effects fights break out over who will play Polybius next.
People who played Polybius began to suffer insomnia, memory loss and horrible nightmares. A few players were driven to suicide.
Strange men would occasionally go to the Polybius cabinet, collect data stored on the machine and quickly leave. After a few months the Polybius game disappeared from the arcades never to be seen again.
Or so the story goes....
