Jeremy is a Windows freeware art game (in the form of a beat 'em up) made for Gamejolt's Music Interpretation contest, where the theme was to make a game based on one's favorite song. Players control Jeremy, who must stay on the offense to gain self-respect. As he takes a physical and verbal beating, he loses that respect and becomes defenseless.
Along with interesting gauge mechanics, the character designs are "charmingly" varied. The music loops horribly, though this may be to avoid copyright infringement of a licensed track. Jeremy saves its strongest punch for its ending, which I hope everyone experiences.
