A downloadable game for Windows

Based on Albert Camus' 1942 essay of the same name, The Myth of Sisyphus looks for meaning in a meaningless world. I really loved the essay and Camus philosophy of Absurdism. It really had an impact on my life and so this is my best attempt to recreate the Essay and make its ideas more approachable in an abridged little Video Game.
