Ancient Greek Punishment Games

 This could also be called 'The Game of Life'

Continuing on the idea of completely un-playable, not-so-fun games... I saw this on Neatorama and thought it was a very funny idea:


These simple 8-bit style games put you in the role of characters from ancient Greek myths who were punished by the gods with eternal torment.

I've been interested in ancient mythology since first learning about the Greek & Roman stories in grade school.


These impossible games simulate the torturous afterlives of the following characters:

Sisyphus
Tantalus
Prometheus
Danaids
...and my favorite, which is actually a philosophical paradox & not an eternal punishment:
Zeno
