Sometimes, simple is best. I've come back a few times since the weekend to reset the button :D

I just want you to know, I've been waiting days just to hit reset and be the guy that gets the current 'high score'.  I felt particularly more proud of myself when i realized i could hit the button on 4:20.  I feel complete.

Hey, another online game in this jam!  Neato. :)

It's a simple concept, but executed well.  I was curious to how you were going to make this comic a game, and you choose to make it an online project, where anyone can reset the sign and can see how long it's been since the sign has been reset.  Nice!

I don't have much more to say, since this is a pretty simple game, but I do like it.  Nice work. :)

VERY clever idea of making an XKCD comic real! I also loved the synchronization! Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Vj46GGL9VMUvd4YTMtjXg

My XKCD game jam analysis is out!

Clever idea!

I love this - reminds me of reddit's 'the button' experiment. Brilliant idea, great execution. I got 90-91: 4 hours 10 minutes 57 seconds - longest so far!

This is brilliant!
