You play Diogenes, who like his namesake resides in a large metal cauldron and wields a Yosemite hammer. Using a mouse, trackpad or controller you try to move the man's upper body and hammer to climb a steep mountain.
Like Everything the game is accompanied by voice-over commentary by Bennett Foddy, who talks about various philosophical topics as you ascend each peak. This underlines the challenge and perseverance of humanity when faced with an absurd and difficult task.
It's a really hard game and increases in difficulty as you progress up the mountain. This is made harder because if you fall you go right back to the beginning. You complete each level by reaching the highest point on the map. When you do this you can enter a chat room with other players who have completed the game to discuss the experience.
