"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.

Just meh.

The game is truly a good representation of life, but if i wanted to relive this guy's same day over and over again, then i'd LIVE -_-. Games are meant to entertain and i had no fun with this.

its like im really losing!

fun game wish there was a deeper meaning but yea everyone just follows the plan.
anyways mind if i write my runthrough?
5 things needed to see the end; death, fired, cow, leaf, and hobo.
Quickest way to see the end;
first run through, get dress, get to the car, get out, pet the cow, wait for leaf to fall, go kill yourself. 3/5 done.
second run through, be naked and go to work, get promotion.
third run is go downstairs and talk to hobo, i prefer naked.
then everyone should be gone, no wife, no trafic, no one.
needs to repeat at least 4 times, fun and simple, too deep for kids.

Truly amazing

I'm happy to see that some artist found a good way of getting a message clear.
We can make people understand how stupid our society works sometimes and people will understand with some help.

Good job

great game

wow that made me reflect a lot. Made me think about what I want for myself, and how I want to change the world and not have some boring job and mediocre existence. I guess all it takes is little steps. @lostpenis, btw when you complete all the steps and then there are no other people besides you, keep walking beyond your cubicle, then you will get to the end.
