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).

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.


Wooow , the end guys , holy shit the end !
That was simply beautiful !

This really makes you think about the lifestyle that you chose. Everything is the same but the results are different in each "dream". The color and artwork is nice and simple. The music fits the game well. The ending was very meaningful and sad. I have never played a game like this before. You did a wonderful job.

Great game, and a fine example of why I've chosen the lifestyle I have, as opposed to the one presented in this game.
