After bumbling around for long enough, you realize there's only 5 days to meet your deadline; use the paddles to bounce the Zs away long enough to finish!

Volume Controls: + and - Press 0 to Mute
Gamepad and Mobile Controls Supported
Press F to Fullscreen and ESCAPE to Exit

Some Statistics:
- Nick has slept approximately 164 hours since production started
- Brandon has consumed 127 cups of coffee during the production of this game
- Mike exported the same 8 songs in the game too many ****ing times before they looped properly
- Work began late at night on July 6th when Brandon committed to teaching Nick how to program
- Play around with the menu: it's got a full fledged drawing program with some secrets!
- You cannot die on the first night, ****in' try me. it will say "you lasted 0 days"

The drawing program built in the main menu is fairly primitive with a basic brush, erase, clear, and screenshot tool. If the game gets too dense with dots depending on your CPU the game may lag.

If you're on a laptop and Arrow Keys are too small try a Mouse or Trackpad on the Right Side! You can also use I and K instead of Up and Down.

a fun little game

good job y'all

GOOD GAME

Challenging, very fun, trained my double handed skills

The core gameplay holds up really well! All the visuals are super fun to look at too!

Good concept but rather uninteresting and laggy gameplay...

I spent way too much time on the drawing program, nice addition!
