"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!

Easily one of the best games on the site... had me pissing myself laughing while working out the puzzles. Great replayability... everything just awesome. Obviously the graphics are simple, but thats part of the charm. Overall just exceptional work.

i really love the game concept, and the animation style fits well. i also like how the levels count backwards.

Not too many games emphasize killing yourself to advance, and some of the puzzles were very creative with solutions you wouldn't expect off the bat with a conventional puzzler.

Now if the game had used "Suicide is Painless" as its theme it would be ironic and hilarious.
