Question. What does the "Show timer" option do exactly? I keep enabling it, but it doesn't appear to be showing any sort of timer. Can anyone explain? Thanks! :)


Sorry for taking so long to reply.

The Show Timer mode is like a small Speedrun Timer to show how long it takes you to finish your final run!

However it seems to be bugged right now! To actually activate it, you have to activate the option during gameplay to get the timer in the top-right corner!

I hope it helps! :)

Thank you for your reply, Frame! I have since posting that comment, figured out how to use said timer and I am actually currently posting runs of the game on speedrun.com! I still very much thank you for the help and for you to have a wonderful day! :D


This is such a cute game, nice job! I still can't believe you did all of that in just one week. Sadly, the game is very short, but I would definitely play a longer version of it. Keep working on it!


good game but I wonder if there is an alternative ending availlable, besides the normal default ending after night 4?

There is no alternate ending available, sadly. I wish we had more time to actually implement something like that :)

Hey, thanks!

Right now the extra playthroughs are mainly for exploring all the items and for the optional "Speedrun-Mode" (you can enable it in the settings) to do some quick restarts with all the Items enabled.

Early in development we actually wanted the "night-cycle" to be beatable but we scrapped that idea becouse of time and balance problems. We wanted the game to be beatable by anyone without beeing too punishing for mistakes

so actually I could just ignore the store, never buy anything and just do the 4 nights normally.
and still win :-(

Yes, but thats no fun, is it? :D

We might consider adding another incentive for beating the game in a set time later (would take some time though)


Hey i tried the game an it was a lot of fun to play i think it is amassing how much game you made in one week.

Hey! thank you :)

A lovely game. Of course it made me think of Groundhog Day. Really nice work. :)


thanks alot :D yes the idea of groundhog day was in our heads while we created this game. 

It worked great, it's a sweet project. :)
