Single segment run in 07:45.
Psychon is one of many home-brewed games made with the PlayStation development kit Net Yaroze. Released in 1997, Net Yaroze made it possible for the common man to develop games for the PlayStation at home. Net Yaroze programmers had access to forums where they could share their projects with others, and some games even made it to OPM's demo discs. Although there were a lot of fun and interesting homebrew games that saw an "official" release, Psychon is probably the best Net Yaroze game to be released in Europe.
Psychon appears on at least two OPM UK demo discs (37 and 42, which has a special Net Yaroze HoF collection with 14 games on the same disc). Apart from a couple of small changes in the music and sound effects both versions seem to be more or less identical. For this run, we played the original version featured on demo disc 37.
Since this game has a great co-op mode, we decided to go for a 2-player run instead of the usual single player mode. Co-op mode is exactly the same as one-player mode, the only difference being that player one (J.Y) is purple and player two (DanE) is green respectively.
Thanks goes out to Ben James for creating this awesome game, and the people at OPM for letting it appear on demo discs.
