"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).

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 complex

I love games such as this where they have a deeper meaning or purpose and for this one it was obviously among the lines of representing yourself with your own personality and to not get so overworked that life becomes boring, you can control it and that you always have and always will have choices, and that when everything else is gone he gets to watch himself commit suicide of his boring life and yet is reborn with more opportunity, it can be interpreted may ways I'm sure but that was very good nonetheless. 10/10 Keep it up, very thought provoking, I like that :).

Take THAT, Roger Ebert!

This game is art. A harsh, conformist environment in which the subject undergoes a series of minor, but significant world-view altering changes in an attempt to, literally, make himself a new person.

Also, the graphics and music didn't hurt.

Wow this game is really interesting! The ending is very odd-maybe he dreams of seeing himself finally jumping but he can't bring himself to do it in real life? Anyway its pretty damn good and its clear you put a lot of thought into it!

My Interpretation

It seems to me that at the end the reason you can't see anyone is that, because you are a new man, they don't exist in your world anymore. The person you see jumping off the building was your old self.
