Let’s Play is part of an ongoing series of games based on ancient Greek figures
and their punishments. Sisyphus, Prometheus, Tantalus, Danaids and Zeno, the
philosopher known for his paradoxes, are represented by the CPU player, the
computer’s Central Processing Unit. In this CPU edition, the computer does it all
by itself, both simulating and playing the game, cutting out the player entirely.
Every time the reload button is activated, the game starts afresh. It may seem
like watching an animated GIF or a video file, but it’s the computer playing,
pushing a rock or having its liver eaten. Again and again. Let’s Play presents a
world closed in on itself, behaving according to its own logic, its own code. A
world stuck in a frustrating loop.
