I present to you a poignant piece of autobiography.



Game is about one of my favorite pastimes: doing absolutely nothing. Go for the highest score and press SPACEBAR to finish.

I don't get it. Does space increase points, quit the game, or do nothing?

It's cheating just to leave this open in a different window, isn't it.  Sad


And this thing is great man, so simple and yet so compelling!  :D

I loved the idea when you told me the concept, and it was well executed.

That's what I love about this: when I caught myself procrastinating on Sunday, I intentionally played this, and by the mid-hundreds had guilted myself into pressing space and getting some work done.  So in the end I think I lost less time to procrastination!

Well Done!  Beer!

bravo sir! bravo! indeed  Gentleman

The music you use in all of these is amazing.  i actually download a ton of public domain music and just used it in a commercial I made for Crayon Ball... and might also use some when making a soundtrack for the game.

There should be a competition for this game. Whoever stays awake/doesn't leave to go to the bathroom/doesn't press space out of pure boredom wins!

Nah... it's sort of missing those returning thoughts like "I really need to get to work" while procrastinating all the while.

Still... one of the simplest competitive games I guess Smiley

So I posted this on Newgrounds yesterday, just for kicks.

Reactions were... mixed. My favorite is the guy who suggests "achievements or medals even".

Yeah, the achievements thing was funny.  Maybe you could, like, make the in-game Tom do something silly when a ridiculously high score is reached.  But that might be going against the point of the game.
