imageThailand based Sanuk Games has an interesting PlayStation Mini game coming out tomorrow called Hysteria Project. Similar to Night Trap, Hysteria Project is entirely filmed. You pay attention to the surroundings, make decisions, and watch what happens. Think of it as choose your own adventure on a PSP or PlayStation 3.


Hysteria Project begins with you tied up in a wooden hut. How did you get there? Will you make it out alive? You’ll have to spend $1.99 to purchase the game from the PlayStation Store to find out.


While Hysteria Project isn’t even out, Yan Marchal, CEO of Sanku Games, says a sequel is planned. “A sequel is planned. The release date has yet to be defined. Stay tuned,” Marchal said to a PlayStation Blog commenter.

  • These are always fun. Yeah, I remember these being on laserdiscs and the Give Yourself Goosebumps books but there are few websites that still make these adventure games (“Survive the Outbreak” is an excellent zombie scenario one).

    These games are usually short and you’re done with it once you’re through, but for the price and being on the PSP to share with friends – sign me up!

      That zombie one was pretty cool.

    It’s a better idea than it turned out to be. Most of the choices are just running around randomly in the woods. For $2 it’s not bad, but don’t expect a full game.

    I sure hope it’s got sweet actors like Dana Plato in Night Trap or Corey Haim in Double Switch…

    Cool. But given that it’s a Mini, it can’t be too big, can it? I wonder if that means it’ll be FMV choices or simply static images. The description here seems to point toward static images, but weren’t Laserdisc games almost exclusively FMV-style?

    • It doesn’t seem static. Here’s what one of the posters in the blog pointed out, it’s the iPhone version of the game

    • JeremyR

      It’s FMV, but the game is only like half an hour. And probably half of that uses the same video of you just running in the woods.

      Also, bear in mind back then, the video wasn’t really compressed much, since CPUs back then couldn’t handle it…
