EVERYDAY THE SAME DREAM is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour. You are a faceless, unnamed man going about his business. The game has alternatives endings. Will you end up going to work and working in a little cubicle like every day, or will you take another route and do something different for once?

OK LEMME TALK ABOUT EVERY DAY THE SAME DREAM.
My history of game design teacher had us play through this game for ten minutes one class, and then played it on the projector.
At first no one seemed to really get it, it just seemed like a daily life simulator with catchy music (the music carries the game beautifully, don’t play it on mute if you can help it).
Then some of the other students began murmuring and questioning the point of the game after a few play throughs.
Yes, there are different ways to end the day, but the game has only one true ending, which is reached after ending the day every way possible.
Don’t judge the game by the minimalist graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. Every Day the Same Dream is a brilliantly crafted and for some a highly therapeutic experience.
Things you do one day can and often will affect the following days, (your wife leaves you, the homeless man vanishes, you lose your job, etc.) Until you’re left with only one final option, which I won’t spoil.
To paraphrase my professor, this game makes you look for a deeper meaning, not just in the game but also in yourself. It takes you to a place within yourself you need to be to understand yourself and how you interact with the real world.
Play it all the way through and see for yourself.
I think everyone needs to hear this
There’s something about the remake that’s making me twitch… it’s the CGI quirkiness. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled there’s a remake, but it feels so heavily reliant on CGI and reminds me of my character’s avatar in Wildstar to think all of it was hand drawn. The way all the characters scream SPRITES to me just distracts me from the story. Everyone has a mechanical visual impression that I can’t unsee. Maybe it’s just me, but the episodes aren’t bringing me the fluid appeal the older ones did. All the characters feel animated in a sense of “oh, I built the character’s model in this generator, it’s handling most of the sequences so we can add more flair to the rest of the show”.
From the overly fancy swoosh of her hair in transformation, to the ridiculous shading on her bow, I just… it bothers the hell out of me and distracts. Maybe it’s overdone. I hope they’ll stop all the fanciness soon and get back to the traditional approach or even blend the hand drawn/CGI together better so it doesn’t stick out so much.
Sometimes I feel like drawing, but I don’t want to make you feel uncomfortable if it’s not your cup of tea.
Why would anyone say no?
