"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.

Deep.

awesome game. loved the fact that everything had something to do with the story. ( the hobbo, the old lady, the cow, etc.) the kind of life I dont want to live. and yea this guy did his best lol. but still, it's an awesome game, really good music, colors were great for the game's theme and basic story was probably tought deeply, even tho you did that in 6 days.

Art.

Strong. Powerful. I, literally, had goosebumps until the end. Everything complemented each other - the colors, the animation, the music - amazing work.

Wow

That was utterly brilliant, I am at a loss for words. It's so simplistic yet make you think, I love games and stories like this one. Everyday the same dream and at last there is renewal of his "old self" jumping. Keep up the good work, and don't lose the personality in your art.
