Horror Legend Tom Atkins to star in Polybius based off the true story about the game!!
In the 80’s there was a mysterious video game called Polybius that was in a few local arcades in and around Portland, Oregon. (Yes young people, Arcades is how we old people played video games and it was so much fun). Legend has it, many became obsessed with the game, even committing suicide when unable to play or reaching points of exasperation. The game was quickly removed from all arcades, never to be seen again.
Jimmy Kelly is working with Fight On Entertainment to turn Polybius into a short film. The film will star Tom Atkins (Halloween 3: Season of the Witch, The Fog).
In 1981, a mysterious arcade game popped in random places in Oregon. During it’s run, government men would visit the game, take readings, and leave. Those that had the misfortune of playing claimed to suffer from depression, night terrors, obsession, and more. Our story takes place at the beginning of this legend. JENNIFER, an intelligent teen, witnessed her brother succumb to the game. She has arrived at the police station to talk with SHERIFF ATKINS (Tom Atkins) where she is questioned by him and his protege OFFICER LLOYD. The three attempt to discover what is Polybius.
