DescriptionEvery day the same dream is a grim game about the tedious life of an office worker. Every day he gets up, hits the alarm, puts on his suit, says hello to his wife and goes off to work, entering the traffic congestion that leads him to a building where all workers look the same, pushing their mouse and keyboard in a hypnotizing rhythm.
It is up to the player to bring distractions to his life, breaking the routine slightly to introduce some worthwhile moments. To achieve this multiple working days need to be played and through a small hint progress can be measured. The man is controlled through the keyboard keys with an additional key to interact with the environment. When all instances have been found after multiple playthroughs, a final day starts. When the requirements are not met, his life keeps cycling until the player discovers a new approach.
