Play OverviewPlay Overview

Exhausted Man is a puzzle game where you play an ordinary, but clinically exhausted, person who must complete everyday challenges, and earn a better life. The twist is that you have to do all this with your character lying down.

Play involves moving around each level by sliding, rolling slinking and dragging your character along flat surfaces. You can either slide or brake with the keys and control direction with the mouse or direction stick.

You race the clock and your limited energy levels to complete different tasks. As you progress you can add items to each room, but this in turn makes the traversal for the next task trickier. Placement and organisation of your room is about making it look nice, but also thinking how you might want to aid completion of the next challenges.

The result is a game that is not only fun and funny, but also connects you with how hard it can be to do things if you don't have enough energy.
