Every day the same dream

Author Comments

"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.

Excellent.

I definitely love the game. The whole meaning thing makes it all the better.
It reminds me of a poem that has to do with a little boy who draws a red flower and a green stem. Sad poem, but good. The game is great, and I like the fact that it reminds me of the poem.
