"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.

Great, and replying to a previous post I will say:

The game was cliche, he needed to walk faster and this message is already well known, still I liked the way it was portrayed, I like how everything was so subtle.

I was reading the past comments/reviews, and one comment stated it right:
The absurdity of meaning. It doesn't matter whether it is a monotonous life we're leading or one full of random interactions, that life is the same life. The only thing that changes are the ethical issues involved between the transitions of before and after. (Before the mass suicide and after it)

We make our own life, interpret it our own way, how grateful we are for what we have is our state of mind, our mental strength.

But then again, that's a little harsh. I think... The Ethical issues this game invokes play a key role in the way we interpret the message, it isn't the monotony of the world that hits you, it's the after-effect of the message.

AMAZING!!!

the game didnt make sense at first...i was wonder wth at first...

But when i got to then end... the lost pieces started to fit together.

He goes about his everyday life...and sees himself repeat the same thing except for certain events!

Just a hint, the elevator lady is the best hint you can have in this game!

Just awesome!
