This is a game where you play Sisyphus, condemned to pushing a stone up a hill in hell forever.
And that's what you do. This game gives out the emotion of sisyphus very well, evoking boredom. It's polished and smooth, and descriptive.
Unfortunately, as Sisyphus, there isn't much to do.
A one-room, unwinnable joke game. With a few more easter eggs and some typos ironed out, there could be an amusing small game here, but it feels too much like the joke's on you for playing it.
Which means there's no escape from your monotonous labor and the game is an unwinnable annoying waste of time.
True art moves people, and so did this tiny joke game at IFComp 2006: some judges were amused, many irritated. I see no reason to play it nowadays, though.
If you enjoyed Sisyphus...

You're dead, but you're not on Charon's list. Impersonate mythological Greek figures (and Zeno!) and suffer eternal punishment in Hades in their place, for better or worse. Okay, it's definitely for worse.
