"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!

Excellent work.

I would have liked more levels, but this was a fun brain teaser while it lasted.

I've been stuck on heart number three for a while now. Very frustrating. >.<

30 minutes later...

I finally beat it. All levels. The level before the boss im confused on how i beat it but hey i got through. Anyways, It was a nicely done game. I would suggest maybe a second game. Better graphics, more levels, more ways to die. Other than that this was a great waste of 30 minutes. 10/10 5/5

One of the best games Ive ever played

Wow. Very well made. One of the levels was pretty hard, but I managed to beat it eventually. I really liked how some of the levels required you to think, as opposed to mindless platform jumping. Amazing game. Please make a sequel.
