FRONT PAGE?! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I grew up playing on Newgrounds, and to have something appear front page is pretty surreal! Thanks!

[SAFARI DISCLAIMER: I'm getting word of Safari not being capable of loading this game for some reason. I'm about to ask the Construct 2 forums about this issue, but for reference right now, each person I've spoken with who experienced the issue has been able to run the game using a different browser, be it Chrome, Firefox, or (yep) IE. I'm thinking it might just be a Safari-Construct 2 compatibility thing.]

[Update: 6/21/14: Pretty game-breaking bug fixed where 'Sleep' button would disappear if monitor tabs were changed. Thanks to Sharpnova for all the help trying to narrow down the problem!]

[Update: 6/20/14: A request for the music has been made. The mp3 is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/srk7bu41ogpu6ly/E.Den%20Title.mp3 You can use it, listen to it as you wish, but if you use it in a game or video, please make it known where the music came from! =)]

[Update 6/15/14:

Updated the monitor screen in the beginning to attempt to make starting the game clearer.]

[UPDATE 6/13/14:

I've heard your voices, and added an "endless mode" that gives the player infinite time to explore and find materials! Once you've beaten this mode, feel free to try to challenge yourself against the timer when you know where to find the objects. (I promise hard is possible to beat.) - Scott ]

Thank you for all of the feedback!!

Hey everyone! Thanks for playing! This is my very first game, and it's not flawless, but I hope you like it! - Scott

Bug: Cannot *officially* finish hard mode as clicking "sleep" makes the game think you ran out of time and you get "Game Over"

Other than that, great game.

CrabRabbit responds:

Ah, you know what?

I just checked that, and I think what happens is that the timer keeps running until you come back as the children. Just made it so that when you click "sleep" the timer stops, so hopefully that fixes the issue.

Thanks for letting me know!

I hit the fruit and it disappeared so I have to restart.The same thing happened with a stick.

CrabRabbit responds:

That's pretty weird.

Would you mind letting me know what difficulty you were on and which browser you were using to play?

I just have to try no narrow down how that happened.

Edit 7/5/14:

I'm really sorry, but I haven't found a way to reproduce this bug! If it happens again, can someone PM me to let me know? =)

This game makes my butt twitch in a way that it hasn't twitched since the last time I was on a church retreat.

CrabRabbit responds:

Hahaha. I uh.. I guess that's good?

At the very least I'm glad I could bring some nostalgia into your life!

Great game, excellent music - what more would you want?

CrabRabbit responds:

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

Wow, this is a really fun game! I am a huge fan of this genre, and I'm really impressed.

My only complaints were the font and handwritten text was sometimes hard to read. I would also have loved a mute button.

Otherwise, it's really well done. I'll be watching for more from you in the future. I really hope you go further with this after the jam.

CrabRabbit responds:

Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad you liked it! I agree about the fonts. I think my single pixel spaced letter-holes (not sure of the proper term) sacrificed a bit of legibility for design. I'll keep that in mind for the future!
