Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 196 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

[MEDALS AND SCOREBOARD PARTIALLY OPERATIONAL]
Leaderboard is facing a bug that won't track past 14 days on endless(also affecting the "last a month" medal). I apologize, please don't strain yourselves for now!!! For now if you'd like to go for a high score send me a screenshot of your whole window when you get to the game over screen via PM and I'll add it manually.

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"
- There are multiple endings! Well 2 good ones and a baaad

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.

Special Thanks to ninjamuffin99 for porting over rexrainbow's Newgrounds API plugin for Construct 3 for this project. Be sure to hit "Retry" or "Quit" on the Game Over screen to ensure it logs your score.

Awesome, this is the next Alien Hominid, by that I mean it's going to get some traction and pick up on other devices with better details and longer gameplay, keep it up!
