Video Game Mind Control: The Wild Legend & Real Story of the Game POLYBIUS

POLYBIUS is one of the greatest legends to come out of the 1980s. It has everything a great 80s story needs: console arcade games, mind control, subliminal messages, men in black from the government, and enough amnesia-inducing triangle-shaped graphics to make an entire generation of gamers forget they ever played it.
