OCTOBER 31st 1981

The morning was quiet; it seemed no different from any other morning. A grey Ford shipping truck rumbled through the suburbs of Portland Oregon with its single delivery. The vehicle seemed no different from any of the other trucks on the road; its cargo would have passed any inspection as ordinary.

Looks could be deceiving.

Everyone is getting ready for the Halloween party at Jerry’s Arcade.

It’s been the night the neighborhood kids have been waiting for.

It’s been the night the college kids have been waiting for.

It’s been the night they have been waiting for.

There’s a new machine being delivered to the arcade: it's ready, it's waiting, it's killer.

Polybius.

It’s going to be game over … for everyone.
