"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


simply a great concept and very challenging at that. I've found myself playing this for a solid half hour. I love the idea of ..killing the character! you don't find that very often. Great job!

Wow !

Really one of the best games I've ever played on NG, and I've been around for a while. Everything fit so perfectly together it was awesome.

This should be in the Top50 of all time, what the fuck ?

Found a cheat way to beat the game...

...if your stuck on a level just right click, click play, close and restart the game. it will jump you one level ahead. Good Game but some levels were harsh.
