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.

I see this "game" being treated incorrectly as one

Back when NG was a few years old, Flash meant nothing but simple, unadulterated entertainment with a clear objective. You could jump in at the game with no thought and derive an experience from it.

But like a child, Flashes on NG have "grown up". Usages of Flash has expanded like the options you have as you grow up and frankly, sometimes these options and applications have become seemingly unclear, pointless, dull, and unrewarding.

"Why is this flash intentionally restrictive? Why does this flash have such quaint objectives? What the hell is this flash for?!" Is this flash supposed to give you goodie action fun?! No. You can't derive an experience from this game unless you PONDER. You'll likely fail to get a direct experience from this game unless you've experienced what it's trying to explain in real life.

When you open one of these flashes, don't immediately treat it like a pewpew action fun adventure videogame. Flash wasn't built to just do those things. Flash was built as a way to display things. This includes feelings, morals, and ideas. Ignore the impediments and look at the flash like a damn poem.

Being a "rebellious teenager" with a slight thing for overanalyzing, I'll divulge on what I "learned" from this. What's your kiddo doing? He's rebelling against you. He wants out. What you're feeling for that dumb, rebellious kid is something akin to parenthood. Except the motivation here probably isn't for your kiddo to live a happy, long life, but to rack you achievements. Empty nest sure feels bad, eh?

I don't care if you hate on me, just take the time to read this and reconsider. I'm probably missing some things to say, but eh. Whatever.

There really was no point to this

I think the message was supposed to be that mothers have to let go sometimes. Only what it really was, was "Mothers have to hold on to their children tightly and baby them endlessly or they will die a horrible death by some monster in the woods"

Seriously, the random idiocy that your 'son' does is astounding. He walks up to an ogre, fights it, leaves barely alive and then GOES BACK? What? Did we drop this poor boy on his head? Has he taken leave of his senses? Or is his fate merely due to lazy programming on the creators part.

This game isn't fun because it is pure chance. The kid moves around and does whatever he feels like which of course is the stupidest thing possible at the moment and you have absolutely no say in it. My kid left at 12 and stayed away for 10 years before he came back for like 2 seconds and died. Wtf?

Throw in a shout fuction, like have the mom make pies that will make him want to come home or something. Fix this PLEASE.

Rated 1 / 5 stars


this is a nice game, GREAT consept.
But yes there are some big bugs so i will take off two stars for that.
But the main problem i have with this game is the complet smack in the face the player gets from this game.
You spend an iratatingly long time keeping the kid safe and keeping distence at the same time to help him level up nicly.
Just to have the (no offence) extramly stupid fuction of random movment make him walk off to an enemy to strong for him, he will take some damage and get past it, but then, the smack in the face, the random function makes him tern around go make to the weird blob and start walking over it, again and again and again, and hes dead, and he rarly even picks up a single item and only killed some rabbits and bears, this happend to me 5 out of 6 times.
Its due to the horibly stupid and lazy choise of picking a random function for the movment that terns this game from great to complet and utter shit.
