Karoshi 2.0 (Jap. 過労死 - "death from overwork") is the continuation of an idea expressed in the first game. The idea is quite simple; each of the 42 levels task the player with the goal: kill oneself.

The game is presented as a typical platform game. However, each level has a certain twist to it, which lie somewhere outside of the platform genre. For example: some levels will require the player to use the mouse or type words into a text parser. The game always tries to trick the player into thinking that the level is impossible, where in fact, the player should find a flaw in the program's logic. Sometimes doing something completely different from what the game is telling you will yield success.

The author, Jesse Venbrux, also included with the game a level editor, and a speed-run version of the original game. The speed-run challenges players to complete the game in under 7:00 minutes.
