"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.

Stunning

This is one of the most stunningly creative, artistic, and enjoyable things I've ever witnessed on newgrounds. The plot line was simple, yet incredibly rich. The playing felt authentically self directed as you were forced to pay attention to the simple minute details of every pixel on the screen. The existential attachment you feel for this "other" character than you have created has created a very unique, bittersweet response. The alienation was expressed well with very saturated grey tones amid the harshness of the TV and the Alarm. I would love to se more of this kind of work.
