How do we explain .detuned? Well, for starters, it’s not really a game (bear this in mind, because we were reluctant to score it). In fact, .detuned is an abstract and surreal interactive experience from the PSN ‘demoscene’ which stars a man sitting in a chair while a creepy melody (or your own added tunes) plays in the background. How long this will entertain you will depend on your, er, recreational pursuits.

Pressing button combinations on the pad will make him dance around, his head morphing into balloons, elephants and demons, while the shoulder buttons warp the music. Like an Aphex Twin video, it feels hallucinogenic, hypnotising and disturbing. Watch this while eating cheese before bedtime for some very unsettling dreams…

    It's kind of interesting, and easy trophies, but not as versatile as the description on PSN makes it sound. Once you've pressed the buttons a twiddled the sticks a bit you've seen it all, and the choice of music doesn't really change anything.

    I can see this being a console seller.
