If you know me very well then you know I have been a NIN fan since I was a kid. I even asked for the Closure VHS boxed set for Christmas and watched the Happiness In Slavery video on repeat on Christmas morning...I was 14. Cut to now and I still love NIN but I have grown up to include such things as video games and VR into my life. Well the new NIN music video has a little of both. The newest video features video from Llamasofts PSVR shooter Polybius.
If you know anything about video games you know that Polybius is the name of a rumored arcade game that was deployed in the early 1980s, but then vanished without trace, apparently after entrancing its victims and permanently altering their mental states.
In the legend Polybius was malign, twisting the minds of its addicted users.
The Llamasoft team has no desire to bend people's brains in any kind of a bad way, but given their history with lightsynths and trance-style shooters thought it'd be fun to do an interpretation of the mythical Polybius.
Currently I am working hard on my first game and it is my goal to be able to work with Trent Reznor one day as well.
