Lori.hWaking up you find yourself not only in a new land, but almost seemingly a new world. A world with very little in it. The few people there do only one thing... dig holes, refill them, and start again, all in the relentless heat of the desert sun. The only real answer you can receive from these nameless emotionless diggers is "We live to dig. And we dig to live.". Sisyphus Reborn is a free indie existential point-and-click adventure game that explores what it means to live. Heavy with atmosphere, Myshkin Entertainment's narrative driven game is short but powerful with its use of art, as well as the beautiful music that accompanies every scene. Simple to play, all you need is a mouse. Click to move or examine items that have a name when the cursor is over it, and right-click to examine closer and gain more detail. On occasion, you must re-examine or "re-speak" with people to gain vital clues to help you on your mission... that mission being, of course, to live. And to live is to dig.

sisyphusrebornSisyphus Reborn is a game that really needs to be played all the way through to the end. The early philosophies presented at the beginning can seem a bit pretentious. It's only once you see the conclusion do you understand what the real message of the game is. Until the ending, though, that ambiance of the game is done so well. Even though the art looks like quick sketches, it still captures the feel of the game. For as little as is presented to you, you still feel like you are right there in the midst of this odd dreary world. The heat waves that roll in made me want to open a window, and the empty spaces really make you feel lost in the middle of nowhere. Along with the artwork, the music is so hauntingly beautiful you'll be pleased to hear the soundtrack is free. But that's not the only reason to play this game with the sound on. There is a puzzle you need to hear to be able to complete. It's one of the few puzzles in the game, so make sure your sound is up or you won't be able to complete this alluring and exquisite adventure.
