Author Comments

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

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.

INSTRUCTIONS:
+ 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.

possible bug

i honestly don't know how this happend, but i got the son to stay with me till 25, but he didn't have any attack, so he just died right away. Maybe it was just luck of the draw, I don't know, but if you could fix that it would be great. The idea's great, too, but it just lacks a certain reality, as in "I should probably not go into that giant tree thing over and over.

Too Much Dumb Luck

The game is likable, but it isn't quite fair (for a medal game). The kid has no AI, he just wanders in random directions. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a kid who happens to keep himself at home and gain experience more quickly. Maybe instead you'll get a retard who tries to rush past the fence as soon as he turns 4. Once he's out, he must be blind, since he can't even see giant monsters ahead or else he should realize that he generally can't scratch them. I think that's a "sword in a stone" (how creative) waaaaay near the bottom of the screen, but it's hard to be sure since he rarely goes close to it and it's swarmed by monsters on every side. I image he could slay some of the giant monsters with it, but there's no way to know. I just hope that's not one of the secret medals.

Son,what did I tell you about dragons?

Seriously...i played this game 5 and in 2 of them the boy just ran into the dragon.On the other 3 same thing but with other monsters

Like...a fucking giant dragon,maybe I should hug him...

The music is excellent,relaxing and fits the place.Nothing against the graphics too,i like this kind of scene

But the kid...for fucks sake.He goes directly into the monsters.Not the rabbits,no no.He loves dragons,orcs and anything else that can kill him.
Also he only try to get away when the dragon is eating his head

His age doesn't matter ,he's stupid no matter what or when
If the man/boy/kid/whatever is going to be this stupid he could at least have more hp and level up faster.
The game would be really nice if the "being" had a brain

An interesting concept. Not much more.

It's an interesting concept, but there is little satisfaction in raising a completely stupid child that makes absolutely no effort to avoid danger or find a way to protect himself (Walking right past the sword on my second playthrough, and going nowhere near it on the first.)

It doesn't stand very tall as a game, because you only play for part of it (And you do not do much, at that) and then are forced for the rest of it to sit there and watch this dumb kid get himself killed. I know that's the point, but it is the folly of "art games". Being art first, and a game second. Unfortunately, that diminishes the fun to be had, which is the reason most people play games: To have fun.

As for good points, it looks nice! I liked the monsters.
The music wasn't bad but it is a short loop, and gets old pretty quickly.
