What a weird ending. The reference to the myth is nice, at first I didn't understand the title of the game until I got to the end of the cave.

This game isn't really all that challenging but it has a sort of calming affect on me as opposed to some of the other games on this site where you get really hyper trying to get a good score. In that sense this game is superior to a lot of others, because it isn't concerned with challenging the player but rather trying to tell a story.

oh... my... god
this is definitely one of the best games I've layed in a long time. I fairly certain I gasped uot loud when i accidentally looked back the first time.
The gameplay's a little challenging at first, until you get the hang of it.
I loved how no two rooms were the same, which can't be said for most of today's mainstream games.
creepy atmosphere, great presentation, reference to the Eurydice and Orpheus myth, puzzling ending.
There is nothing to hate about this game.

Somewhere between Zelda II, Batman (nes) and the Total Recall video game. I was totally anticipating a green pantsuit wearing midgit to jump out of a trashcan at me.

More specifically when I move the rain stops pouring unless I'm moving again and when I jump it freezes and when I move to the next screen it freezes.

Andylink, you seem to be having a lot of Flash troubles lately. I'd highly recommend updating your Flash Player again, even if you think it's already up to date.

I have a theory... In the greek myth with Eurydice and Orpheus, Orpheus was not allowed to look back. He did so and Eurydice's shadow dissolved, much like in here, and Orpheus was not allowed to go back (the guy is not allowed to go back to retrieve his (dead wife) once again. So my theory is that if you don't mess up at all, there might a secret ending.

Yes thank you nika you are right. I had the name wrong... again. I stopped after the part where he turns around because thats where this game stops, basically.
I still think its a cool game even though its not hard just a weird interesting ending. I wonder what does happen. Does the guy have infinite souls or something? Because if hes dead now, the man he saw at the grave is himself, but hes his soul, oh whatever...

Actually the myth is about Orpheus and Eurydice- when he looked back to see if she's following him from the Hades, he broke his promise and she never got out from the underworld.
Poor guy lost all the interest in women after that, but they were still chasing him (cause he was a gorgeous amazing musician and a poet), and finally a bunch of them attacked him and tore him to pieces with their bare hands.
Us beautiful people are cursed like that. :P

Nice game, finished pretty quickly.
Based on the story of Thesee who goes to hell to get his love back, makes a deal with hades that if he can bring her all the way out of hell (crossing the Styx and all the other challenges) without looking at her, he'll let her have a 2nd life. In the end he does turn around.
