The inspired idea behind Wake-up Club is that getting out of bed is easier and more enjoyable with friends to encourage you.
The app works by connecting you to a network of Wake-up Club members around the world. When your Wake-up Club alarm goes off, you have a few moments to tap the screen and let the community know you're awake; after that, the avatars of fellow fans with alarms set for the same time will start to appear on-screen to holler their support and cheer you on.
It's great fun to open your eyes and realise that real people across the globe are taking an interest in how long you choose to snooze. What's more, you can tap and hold any of the on-screen avatars to view user info and even send a friend request – so it's entirely possible to make a few new gaming buddies before breakfast. And if you'd rather ignore your alarm for a little longer? Simply shake the PS Vita system and the avatars will disappear.
Of course, it's also up to you to return the favour, cheering on your fellow Wake-up Club members to ensure they don't slumber through their important appointments. When you finally leave the Land of Nod, you can view your Wake-up Club Record to see how long on average you take to wake, how many times you've helped out other members and how many other players you've woken up with – useful stats that will show where you need to improve if you want to pick up some of the many trophies available for fast risers...
