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. :)
