"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!
The one that jesse has made on yoyogames is a whole crapload better
you have to download gamemaker, the click play, then search karoshi, and you can play karoshi 1 and 2
Would be great if...
the awful controls wouldn't make some level frustrating.
This game is great. But I can't do the 3rd from last level with the box saying "I like mouse!" for the life of me. Again, great game. Keep it up and whatnot.
More challenging than other suicide games
Thankfully, it was still funny, and, when you finally get to die at the end of each level, it's a good dark joke.
The intro animation was a little poor though, with an out-of-sync Newgrounds intro animation and the short video that followed showed bad drawing and simplistic tweening - the latter was OK in the actual game. But on the whole, this game can't fail on the basis of an intro animation.
really good thinking game
An indirect Sequel to "The Artist" shows the life of the salaryman
Cornelius & Toots are back, and a Haunted House Ride seems a little spookier than usual!
this one isn't funny
