Button (Free) - Keep yourself focused.



It's a button! It lights up at certain times, you push it, you get points. It's networked, so the button lights up for everyone at the same time, and there's a high score list to compete against other button-pushers. From time to time, we'll also throw out in-game items and real-world prizes.

It's kind of an unusual concept, but we're hoping it can be beneficial. If you're having trouble staying focused, Button can give you a little stimulation every so often to keep you awake without the distractions a full game would cause.

I'm the developer at Blank Software, so let me know what you think.

This is actually a really interesting concept. I like it.

However, I have a question: How often does the button light up?

I've been waiting for three-

Haha, never mind, the button just lit up!

...Twice!

This is a really cool concept. Keep on going!

Thanks! It lights up a preset number of times per hour, but the exact times are distributed randomly throughout the hour. We're still tweaking the server to find the best balance.

Actually that screenshoot is pretty much the game... you push the button
Its really addictive even if you never ever would thought it would be.
