"Karoshi" is a Japanese word and means "death by overwork". In this game many things are not what you'd expect and the goal of each level is counter-intuitive: you need to die.

Each stage presents a new challenge. There are several objects you can use to solve puzzles, and in later levels the game will even break it's own rules to surprise you.

50 clever levels and a boss fight at the end. We hope you have fun (killing yourself)!

If you have played the Game Maker version, YES this is an official Flash version!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

i remember playing this when i was younger, and back then i was really confused when i first jumped onto the spikes and exploded, but progressed onto the next level. playing it a second time has been great, i was able to beat it, and only had to use a walkthrough on two levels. great game overall, one of my favorites. 5 stars!

I remember playing this a few years ago; suddenly stumbled across this gem again.

This is a game where you need to kill yourself in order to progress further. It's pretty creative, and some of the levels are quite challenging. The first time I played this, I had to use a walkthrough (and subsequently facepalmed and said "ooohhh, I see" everytime I consulted it).

Even though its age is starting to show, (when compared to "newer" games) I still find this a fun, creative challenge. 10/10

This game is AWESOME!!! I beat this game and I must say, it's not easy :)
There is some guy asking how to beat lvl 41: you must be very quick, youmust stand very close to the wood box/block and jump-shoot it, it will break and it will let the safe to fall down then, while the safe is falling you must stand under it, even an inch under it will kill you so you don't have to be worried about getting totally under it, just a little will do just fine :)
Again, the game is awesome! Nice work, creator of the game.
