"Benches and Beds let you take a nap! While you're dreaming of bees time in the game will be sped up."

Time is an important mechanic in APICO, as different species prefer different times of day!

Each game hour in APICO is 1 real minute, meaning a full day is 24 minutes. Players can speed up the passing of time by using a Bench (1 game hour becomes 6s) or a Bed (1 game hour becomes 3s). Days are split into 4 parts - Dawn, Day, Dusk, and Night.
