Artface – Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment: Art Edition

By Alice O'Connor on January 15th, 2015.

Our Adam might have enjoyed Pippin Barr’s Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment in 2012, but didn’t answer one big question: was it… The A Word? Y’know, The Big Chinscratch. The Great Hmmmer. The Old Wallhanger. The Inherited Necklace. Art. Was it Art? There can be no doubt about the free new Let’s Play: Let’s Play: Ancient Greek Punishment: Art Edition Edition.

It’s got ‘Art Edition’ right there in the name, for starters. This time, as you play Prometheus scaring off the eagle pecking out his liver for eternity, you’ll find the game hanging on a wall, and its frame reflecting your webcam-captured face back at you.

Rack And Yield: Ancient Greek Punishment

By Adam Smith on January 9th, 2012.

I am the 0%

Good morning and welcome to a new week. How does it feel so far? Does your inbox feel like a Sisyphean challenge that you would rather ignore? Does Zeno’s Paradox amply demonstrate the perceived distance between Monday morning and Friday evening? Are birds pecking at your innards for reasons that you consider a tad harsh? Take a break from all that with a bunch of lo-fi minigames based around Ancient Greek Punishment. It’s like playing Track and Field except with slightly more jocular mythological references. Very annoying that it doesn’t seem possible to quit back to the menu and choose a new punishment, although perhaps that’s the point. THERE IS NO ESCAPE except the refresh button. Ta Indiegames blog.
