"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!

Very fun... though i wish the crazy levels with the mouse clicks and trippy "think outside the box" theme started earlier.

definately worth a 10/10, i'd probably give more if i could, if you were to make a sequel, a level editor would be an awesome idea, like one of those levels you threw at us, and the i like mouse was fun. also, if there actually is a sequel make the hints a little less obvious, i found it on the easier side because of obvious hints, and...uhh, let's just say a few glitched safes (it the plural safes?) helped me through a few tricky ones...i expect more, and a level editor! n_n
