Introduction

Caffeine is one of the three consumables in Twilight Heroes, the others being Sugar and Vegetable. Consuming caffeine increases your Bedtime, allowing you more time to play.

Each caffeine item has a size in "units" of caffeine. You can consume 12 such units per day. Trying to consume more will get you the message:

You've had enough caffeine for one night. Any more and you're going to get twitchy and start acting weird instead of heroic. And trust me, nobody wants that.

Trying to multi-use too much caffeine will get you the message:

That's way more caffeine than you should drink in one night. You think better of it, and your nerves silently thank you.

Trying to multi-use caffeine when you are under decaf restrictions gets you the message:

You have opted to go without caffeine this run, so you can't have that, no matter how much you'd like to.

Notes

  • It is hard to compare items which consume contain both sugar and caffeine to items that contain only one of them. The values used in the table above assume that each sugar unit yields 10 minutes, such as the amount given by eyeball gumball and other standard sugar items. Other useful comparisons might be:
Sugar yield/unit Caffeine yield/unit
10 (e.g. eyeball gumball) 18.833
11.75 (e.g. sugar substitute) 17.958
12.5 (e.g. stroopwafel) 17.583
