Video Game Based on Ancient Greek Torments



    The video game ‘Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment’, available at creator Pippin Barr’s website, offers perhaps the ultimate challenge with a series of levels that are (as far as we can tell) completely unwinnable, and based on ancient Greek mythology.

    Play Tantalus, doomed to eternal hunger and thirst for feeding his son to the gods. Experience the plight of the Danaids, who must fill a sieve with water. Zeno’s Paradox may not actually be a mythological punishment, but we’re willing to let that slide.

    Once customers realize that they cannot win any level of the game, but at least they have explored some ancient mythology, they can check out the other games on Barr’s website.
