Video: Dyad, an insane racing game that's 'pure hyperbole'

Imagine: You've just entered the E3 show floor and you're instantly awash in stimulation. From every corner of the cavernous West Hall, bass pounds and strobes flash. Finally you make it to the relative calm of the PlayStation booth only to find that your first appointment is the absurdly colorful, hallucinatory madness of PSN Dyad.

Imagine: You've just entered the E3 show floor and you're instantly awash in lights and sound. From every corner of the cavernous West Hall, bass pounds and strobes flash. Finally you make it from the carnival of stimulation to the relative calm of the PlayStation booth only to find that your first appointment is the absurdly colorful, hallucinatory madness of PSN exclusive trip-racer Dyad.

"It's a bizarre, insane, strange racing game with the weirdest music and most awesome gameplay ever," said developer Shawn McGrath. Big talk, but is he sure the game can back it up? "Absolutely. The game is pure hyperbole."

From where we were standing (with more-than-a-little baffled grins on our faces) Dyad seemed to be living up to McGrath's hype. See for yourself in the video below.
