I… honestly don’t know how to take this… That trailer certainly wasn’t the slightest bit informative. The text around it didn’t really help either. For all I can tell, this is like those free little IQ tests plastered left, right and 92 other directions around the internet.

Is this a “game” in the traditional sense?

    Test Yourself consists of several tests that, when taken all together, provide a psychological portrait for the player. It is much more involved than the pop up, spy-ware ads you mentioned. While it can be considered in a tool in this sense, Test Yourself is still very much a game. Each of the areas the player will be tested in will consist of a different game. These games can be replayed for high score and bragging rights.

3. Nice Start (Bronze) – Complete any test.
4. Quick Learner (Bronze) – Improve any test’s result 10 times in a row throughout the day (in single player Training Mode).
5. True Friend (Silver) – Describe yourself in social test so that your assessment matches your friend’s opinion.
6. Self-Known (Silver) – Request at least 10 assessments from your friends in social test.
7. Racer (Silver) – Outlast at least for 20 seconds in Brownian single player game.
8. Solved in 300 Seconds (Silver) – Complete the Intelligence test in 300 seconds without mistakes.

Hidden Trophies
10. Kamikaze (Bronze) – Outlast for less than 3.1 seconds in Brownian single player game.

I was extremely excited about this when I first learned of its existence when it was getting released for the European PSN a few weeks ago. I was hoping I could either buy it off of a European PSN ID and play it myself, or that it was coming to the United States. It seems my wishes have been fulfilled. I’m happy about the inclusion of trophies, because I enjoy psychological validations, and the very subject of psychology has always intrigued me. I plan to support this entire project throughout its lifespan, and perhaps, beyond. =)

The only way I’d even consider buying is…

(A) …by finding out how much the DLC will cost (after all, 12 pieces of DLC could make this a costly endeavor), and…
(B) …by being reassured in a legally binding way that the results of my psychological exam will not be provided to corporate or governmental entities of any sort.

Hopefully I’m not tipping my hand with Section B, but it is what it is. Your move, Bill.
