We had to play Every Day the Same Dream for class Thursday and I found these three blogs about the game.  Each link goes to a page and if you scroll down a little you’ll see a blog about the game.  It was interesting to see peoples thoughts and reactions to the game.  Surprisingly many people really liked the game and a majority of the comments were positive.  People even called the game brilliant.  An interesting topic that got brought up is whether or not this should even be classified as a game.  I thought the game was really boring and the music drove me crazy.  Reading other peoples reactions gave me a lot of new perspectives on the game.  It’s amazing how simplistic the game is but yet so many people really appreciated the effort that went into making it.

    I would suggest giving this game another look. If you complete the game, the music, the colors, the message, the imagery, every aspect of the game takes on a meaning that is overwhelmingly greater than the sum of its parts. In my opinion this is a beautiful piece of artwork that is rich in depth.

    Kevin, I am so glad you posted on the game! I made the mistake of overlooking the game after a single run through and thought it was incredibly dull. Hearing what others have to say and playing it again has given me a completely different take on it. The music which at first drove me nuts now seems to fit just fine. The only complaint I have was that the whole game focused on escaping the monotony of life. Which in itself isn’t a bad thing at all, but the way the game gave you a final escape through suicide was a total let down. While some people may think that this is ultimate freedom, I see it as the end of freedom. How are you free if you end your ability to make choices? Suicide means you killed your own right to be free to do stuff. In the game, I would have liked it if the person/player had the freedom to choose to quit his job in search of something more meaningful in life then repetitious office work.
