Today I Die is a short puzzle video game developed and published by Daniel Benmergui as a browser game on 2009-05-06. It was originally programmed in Flash. There appears to have been an iOS port, but it is no longer available.

The game opens on a drowned woman with a poem above her. You are able to move around various words in the poem to adjust the setting of the game. In each new setting there is a different obstacle to overcome.

Personal

I found this game online shortly after it came out because I was already a fan of Benmergui's earlier game, I Wish I Were the Moon.

This game is freely available online. I have beaten it.

  • The game is attractive looking. There is a good use of color palette and the pixel art is nice.
  • The change of music adds a lot to the mood.

Bad

  • Nothing.

Ugly

  • The game is too short. Even without any knowledge, it can be finished in about three minutes.
