"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.

This game can be a bit boring, but it tells a great story. Repeating itself everyday. New things can happen everyday you live it. Like the homeless man took me to the grave "I can take you somewhere quiet" Or the wife saying "Honey you're late get to work" and the boss yelling at me "You're late!" "Get to your cubicle!" and all the same looking people just like me until I get to the cubicle. Or seeing the cow, and picking up the leaf. Then finally jumping off the roof because I had enough with everyone.

Then I reset. Nothings there. I redo everything. Nothing. Finally I go to the roof, where I see myself jump off and relive my little life as a business man who has a very unique view to life. I kind of actually thought I was the little business man for a minute because I got used to redoing every little thing in the game.
Anyways, this game was fantastic. Beautifully done. Music was well fitting, the story was written well and I got the point. :) Amazing job!

This game is fantastic, I love it, the atmosphere is magnificent, the music is awesome, the message is great and by the end of the game I was saddened. Play this game, but have some detox ready.

I am beyond impressed with the game. The polish, the music, the story, even the ambiance of the game. It doesn't tell you what it is going to deliver you search for it. And from such a simply driven game the end is very good. I for one am impressed and it is the first 5 star i've given in a while
