"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!

i really like this game. Really creative. Who ever made this game has what it takes to be a game maker. lvl 28 (27 lives left) is sooo funny once you figure out the answer you will feel stupid @lazyboy397 . It only gets harder from there. Notice how your character can travel to the other side of the map real fast?

I'm beating ALL these levels wrong. On 41 I somehow shot the safe from the wrong side, and It fell on me. On the levels with the levers, if you get just far away enough to still flip the switches, you can walk back to the electric things, and the switch stays on. I feel guilty for discovering these things. It feels like cheating. :(

It is astonishingly difficult how difficult it is for a suicidal man with a gun to kill himself. Especially when he is apparently immune to bombs.

Essential stupidity aside, this is a fun a little puzzle game. The ending makes no sense to me, however.

Level 41: Jump on the first block, then rapidly shoot the box AND safe, then jump into spikes. c:
