:P Introductory
In Karoshi you must kill yourself in each level. This is more difficult than it sounds!

:P Core Information
Title: Karoshi
Genre/Category: Puzzle / Platform
Download Size: 4 mb
Game File-Type: Stand-Alone Executable
Resolution: Fullscreen (can be changed in menu)
Current Version: v1.1
Written In: :rambo Registered

:P Game Description
Karoshi comes with 25 levels and a rather unusual boss fight at the end. Each level is a new puzzle in which you must figure out how to die. This can sometimes be different from what you initially think. The game does not present a story, but you can kind of make out what the back story of this game is.

:P In-Game Screenshots

:P Play!
Play at YoYoGames
Or download

;) Final Comments
Have fun! If you get stuck in a level, just post in the thread. Puzzles can be difficult but the solution is always obvious.

Like all your games 2D cube, this is really good :skull:

The concept is pretty original, and I think the graphics are neat too (I think the character sprite is okay for a game like this, but what's really urking me is all the white stuff around the red and black things and the text) . I'll say more once I can beat level 5 :GM072:

It's a nice little platform puzzler - good job. I like the reverse mentality of the game; that is a neat touch. I agree with Necromian, the graphics are good, but the text and bloody borders kind of detract from the simple, puzzle-game nature of the game. Also, what exactly does 'Karoshi' mean?


All your games have quite good level design. Nice work!

hmm. Interesting game, i was actually thinking of eventually making a game somewhat like this, but not a puzzle game. I actually beat this game even though I don't really like puzzle games :GM072: It was all right. The graphics needed work... but I'm going to guess you were under time constraints? The blocks looked good :skull: The gameplay itself wasn't spectacular or anything really special. And the difficulty didn't steadily increase. I found level 5 to be a little on the hard side, and then after that level the game eased up a bit, and climbed back up and sorta went all over the place. Kinda funny too, but got old quick. I'd seriously suggest fixing up those graphics, the game looks pretty bad with those white pixels and the player is... yeah.

I agree with Necromian, the graphics are good, but the text and bloody borders kind of detract from the simple, puzzle-game nature of the game. Also, what exactly does 'Karoshi' mean?

It does detract a little, but not too much in my opinion. About the graphics. I think I could have done better, and I think people know that (after I made Frozzd). It's just that I didn't want to put as much work in it. I just wanted to have some fun.

"Karoshi" is a word the Japanese invented: It means "death by working too hard".

the difficulty didn't steadily increase. I found level 5 to be a little on the hard side, and then after that level the game eased up a bit, and climbed back up and sorta went all over the place.

I wanted to do a difficulty curve that is not as linear as usual, I think it's better to have it vary. I may have overdone it a little.

the game looks pretty bad with those white pixels and the player is... yeah.

Look, I'm lazy like that ok? About the graphics, in the end I decided to make it sort of bad on purpose, that is also why I used the pixely blue text as well.

This is your first good game !

Thanks! ....wait what?

Lol...

Wow. Also, I like your name.

that was a pretty cool game. I wish it was longer though.

Thanks. It is indeed pretty short, but it has a lot of gameplay, with a lot of variety imo. It's more of an experiment and a side project for me. I wanted something I could make without too many problems, and if I'm working on a huge, long game I often loose motivation.

@redstone, that is a nice tutorial! If you're stuck at level 24 check it out.

-----

I am very happy with the great responses, it's always tricky seeing how people react, but I feel like it's been worthwile. There's one thing I didn't expect to happen (so, I've learned something new), which is the befamed K level. It seemed pretty obvious to me (and once you figure it out it is) but you just don't think about the solution that way, because it's so different from the other puzzles.

No offense but this is not one of your best works 2D. There were no real flaws in the game, but it was pretty simple. As you said in some other post you just wanted to have fun, and you made a good game.

Great game! I beat it, the "k" level was easy. Once I found out the first part of most levels, they were easy. Good job though.
