Existendo Video Games

Existentialist literature has never been a big hit with kids, and let's face it, would you slip Jean-Paul Sartre's Nausea into your beach bag? But the line of video games offered by the Existendo Company would put a wan smile on even Sartre's grouchy face. This screen from The Myth of Sisyphus, and the accompanying excerpt from one of the firm's ads, say it all:

Count on Existendo to bring you the very best in French Existentialist video games. Albert Camus' Myth of Sysyphus delivers endles hours of philosophically challenging, ego-battering entertainment. Ponder your pointlessness as Man scores big on the uphill push, then the Rock's downward roll sets him back to zip! Fruitless fun for the whole family.
