You can do it Sisyphus! Be the boulder! Keep on rollin’! Don’t stop! Never give up! No retreat! No surrender! No end in sight! Just delicious Greek torment as far as the eye can see and as fast as the fingers can type!

You could read my writing about the game on my blog if I’d written anything about it. Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment was featured all over the place, including BoingBoing, The Verge, Edge, Open Culture, Joystiq, Kotaku, Rock, Paper, Shotgun, a mention in a Slate article and many more. There is a genuinely hilarious “Let’s Play” of the game on YouTube by SirTapTap.
Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment has appeared in the exhibitions The Name of the Game at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Art & the Viewser at the Allegheny College art gallery, and Rausch: Festival fuer digitale Kunst at the European Academy of Art.
