Monday (mutilation) Mind Teasers: Karoshi series

0

Last week we played through a game where your future self torments you. This week we just plain old fashion torment ourselves. "Karoshi" is a Japanese word for "death by overwork" and with our hard working staff home from TGS 2009, I figured taking another look at this series was appropriate.

The goal in this series is simple: beat every level by finding a way to kill yourself. Jump into spikes, let boxes fall on your head, shoot bullets at bouncing surfaces, and the list goes on and on. The controls can be a bit over sensitive and fast paced, but in a suicidal puzzle game it only ends up lightening the mood of the journey as you burst into bloody fireworks over and over each level.

Two of the games you can play right in your Web browser, while the other three are offered as free downloadable PC games. Feel free to dive into any of the five games here on Jesse Venbrux's site.
