Webgame Wednesday: Ancient Greek Punishment
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Jan 11 2012 12:05 PM ]
OK, so Ancient Greek Punishment is more of a conceptual joke than an actual game. Nonetheless, artist/programmer Pippin Barr has created a cheeky tribute to the tortures of the underworld done up in an old-school, Atari 2600 art style. Pick your character (Sisyphus? Tantalus? Prometheus?) and get to work. Follow the instructions and ... well, you'll get the picture pretty quickly. Keep in mind these minigames aren't quick. They take a long time to get through. Like all of eternity.
