Every day the same dream

"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).

Edit: there was a misattribution in the original entry, thank you Tom for fixing it.

nostalgic game i played it like in 2011 good times

I Absolutely Loved this game, i played in 2015 for the first time and i have a lot of questions about this game, the meaning of the 5 steps to become a new person, the meaning of this, for me, is a mystery

Nice story.

I remember playing this around 2012 really happy that I found the game again and enjoyed it again :)

Honestly, I really enjoyed this. Even if you jump, the game doesn't stop. The cycle won't end. It only ends if you put in the work to change, and when you do, everybody from your life is gone, and the road is clear. Almost as if you are given a fresh start.

This is a beautiful game, and I hope that it is recognized for its deeper meaning. :)
