"Every day the same dream" is a slightly existential riff on the theme of alienation and refusal of labor. The idea was to charge the cyclic nature of most video games with some kind of meaning (i.e. the "play again" is not a game over). Yes, there is an end state, you can "beat" the game.

Made in about 6 days: 3 code + 3 content + 1 making crappy drones with an electric guitar (alternate soundtrack that didn't make into the final game).

Music by Jesse Stiles
Made in 6 days for the Experimental Gameplay Project - theme "art game"

Edit: there was a misattribution in the original entry, thank you Tom for fixing it.

Very Emotional Actually

I actually felt sad and depressed with this game, its amazing, the only other game that i found with a message like this was a game called "With the company of myself" and this is actually just as good as that one, so keep it up man.

my thought on the meaning

This was a very good game. It reminds me that we're all going to die, no matter what, and we should take time to find ways to make our life different while we have the chance. I do not know what to say about the scene with the hobo. (spoiler warning) I also don't quite get it when he watches himself die. I know that this may not make sense at all but what ran through my mind was that, "perhaps killing himself was his mistake,"and that he's watching himself falling off the building thinking, "I could've stayed because now I realize things don't have to be so one-track." Or, if that was someone else falling off, I don't know. I liked it very much :)
