Released yesterday for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America (no word on Europe), My Name is Mayo is “a clicking adventure that simulates the real-life tapping of a Mayo Jar.” What makes My Name is Mayo truly interesting is that it’s priced at $1, is a 44MB/76MB download, and has 51 Trophies to unlock – including a Platinum.
Even with 51 Trophies (four of which are Gold), players have reported that they unlocked the Platinum in as little as 25 minutes. On Exophase, 154 of the 179 registered players have already grabbed the Platinum. Here’s a look at just some of the Trophies in My Name is Mayo:

In one of the Steam reviews for My Name is Mayo, a player said, “You pay a dollar to click on a jar of mayo 10,000 times for achievements. There are costumes to put on the jar. That’s it. That’s the whole game.” Overall, there’s 1,800 Steam reviews and the response is Very Positive.
If you’re a PS Vita owner looking for another $1 game with a Platinum Trophy, Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom recently dropped to $0.99.
Are you surprised that Sony allowed a $1 game to have a Platinum Trophy, when many other more expensive games don’t have one?
