"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 is AMAZING and I had no trouble doing all the steps. The only problem is, in reality, there is no ending. You just get to keep playing and keep playing. I know that's the point of the game, but there should be an end. That's why my rating isn't 5 stars. Overall, the game is pretty good.

Gosh dang. As an artistic work, absolutely beautiful. Everything ties in, and it can be ended if you just realize what the game is trying to tell you... Somewhat disturbing, but in a provocative way.

Really interesting and simplistic. Kind of wish the ending was different though. Kills the vibe a bit but overall I loved it! Would've been cool and ambiguous if you had to sit down at your cubicle at the end to finish the game, to better highlight the themes of the it.

woah! this game is incredible, it really gives you a feels rush and instantly makes you regret doing what you did just to complete the game, also, by the way awesome music and arts, both go by with the game story
