WASD - move character

A + D - Rotate long arm

Q + E - Rotate short arm

There is no jump; in order to climb blocks, you have to pull yourself up with your long arm. The entirety of the game (there's not much) is currently beatable in this system.


Oh, Sisyphus. How I loved thee as a concept.

This started as a game jam themed around Greek mythology and the concept of the game is simple: with only rotating arms at your disposal, you must push a boulder up a randomly generated mountain.

I was considering bringing some kind of story into it too, but... yeah. I don't know why I stopped working on this. I think because I was scared that it was boring?

Though saying that, at least it helps you empathise with ol' Sisyphus.

Gave up at the last bit when I finally got the rock to the last cliff. Got it out of the chasm and everything, it rolled all the freaking way down. Don't think I've ever hated a grey circle this much. Serious "Getting Over It" vibes but thematically this is more consistent. Guy in a pot with a hammer making me suffer doesn't make any sense. Me suffering because I'm playing as Sisyphus makes sense LMAO.
