"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!

Sickeningly great game.

Interesting but lacks polish, the controls are clunky, presentation is average. I feel this should be funnier somehow.

The only problem is the garageband loops. Other than that, it's a good game.

A solid puzzle game, lots of fun

Very addictive, and just hard enough to make you really need to think without making you want to throw the computer across the room. Especially some of the more creative levels give a real sense of accomplishment when you figure out what it wants you to do. That and they're funny.
