Microsoft has just released a fresh new application that aims to make waking up a little bit more fun.

Mimicker alarm is available now from the Google Play Store and offers a fresh twist on the typical alarm applications. After snoozing the clock, users must complete a short game within 30 seconds or face the alarm continually sounding until get the will to finish it.

The app has three games to choose from: taking a specific selfie pose to show you’re awake, taking a photograph of something with a specific colour, or answering a simple riddle.

The game comes from Microsoft’s Garage department, a small division within the company that focuses on unique, innovative ideas.
