A slightly longer lasting experience than the previous 3. Find it here.

I'm about halfway through the levels, and stuck. I had to resort to a "strategy guide" a couple of times (I forget where, just google it), and things have been a bit buggy along the way. Interesting concept (try to die, rather than try to avoid death), but so far it feels more like homework.

Also, some of the level solutions seem like they reward ADHD thinking over any sort of logic.

Really liked this, my fave so far. Only had to get help for one level, 5, the one with the shotgun. Haven't come across any bugs... also really disagree about the puzzles, I thought they were mostly really clever, or at least quirky, and really rewarded out-of-the-box thinking.

Loved the end, got genuine lols.

"loading" even.
We can always pick up the pace and start more of these if people are inclined.

Start some threads!
I'd happily support a Grim Fandango playthru as well.

I really love the concept and general sense of humor about these games. The series of false endings was great. There was probably one or two puzzles where I had to resort to a walkthrough.

If you want more, there's also the latest game, Karoshi Factory which basically is this concept meets The Lost Vikings. The one tune that plays over and over in it is pretty damn catchy!
