Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

That is a moose.

You are not suppose to die via moose.

I really enjoyed this game. It gets its point across very strongly with gameplay alone. I would like to see either a little more control or a little less difficulty. Though either of those things might lessen the impact, it would also be nice to have more than 1 in 10 children live. Even simple things like the house healing the child or a right click action were you can call out to him would greatly improve the experience (and the average life expectancy).

I would also like to see more paths for the child to follow: farmer, hero, villain, lord, scholar, monster slayer, merchant, etc, etc. That way you could feel a sense of accomplishment for his actions and not just his sheer clingy-ness to mom.

Overall I did enjoy my experience with this game. It reminded me a lot of The Legend of Zelda Oracle games when you get to help the newlyweds with raising there son.

I dont know which purpose shares this game but its not entertaining, all you can do its control the mother and keep the child. The child is always running away on higher levels, and as adult with lvl 24 and 10 strenght cant kill his own shadow, cmon dude...


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

This game has the potential to be interesting...

If it weren't for the fact that it randomly restarts itself. Makes it rather frustrating to play, especially for mothers who kept their kid in as long as possible, and then watched him turn into a monster slaying badass.

Fix the restart issues, and your score will increase dramatically.

but the game STILL restarts itself. You should really look into fixing that.
