Sleep is no option.

High and low tech graf collaborated last night to create the next great fad in gaming since since Luigi and Mario introduced a generation to mushrooms and urban caving: Chalk Willsy [version 0.1]. The uniquely Adelaide game requires players to hit an image of local celeb, Anne Wills, with socks stuffed full of coloured chalk as she bounces across any projection surface.
