There’s no feeling quite as going to the arcade and having fun with friends. In Polybius, that carefully compiled selection of arcade games isn’t just a way to have fun—it’s a clue to a government conspiracy.
When a new arcade cabinet called “Polybius” arrives at an arcade in 1981, Portland, Oregon, it quickly became the favorite game.
Four teenagers from different social backgrounds, Derek (jock) Amy (Punk) Kurt (nerd) and Bianca (princess) find themselves obsessing over the game and come together to find a way to beat it, only to find themselves in a plot by a shadowy secret government cable.
Polybius combines the teen angst and music choices of John Hughes, mixed with young people rebelling against the government like the Maze Runner and Hunger Games series.
