"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.

Truly an experimental game

Is like nothing I've ever played before... There are no real enemies, or puzzles or even a clear goal... Just like life itself...

Nice little experiment, kinda weird and monotonous, but I guess that was what you wanted. I'd like to see more experiments :)

I love the sense of purgatory.

Your alone in the world and to watch your self jump is a huge moment. I could do nothing but hold my breath!

Any score under ten is invalid.

Nice work!

I enjoy interactive stories so much. I really loved the message of this flash, so true, and the music fit well in the whole flash which gave a sensation of bore and monotonous (which is good for the flash :P)
Conclusion: Very good, but I wish it was longer.
8/10
5/5

You messed up with my brain big time there buddy, I commend you for that. This kind of flash is why I fucking love this site. Every "step" was fantastic, the art and music creeped me out on the ending, some kind of psychological terror, not to monsters or aliens or imminent death, but something more... primal, I guess everyone there takes their own conclusions, I won't be rambling about it as it could take a lot to describe lol...

I don't really like the ending, but that could also be a point. Fav'd right away.
