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.

Is this a retarded child?

Can't really say much that hasn't been said, bug is def annoying, child is either retarded or too courageous. I enjoy the fact that I have virtually no control over the child however it would be nice if you added a simple mouse-click to call your child back to home when his hp gets low, since the player is restricted to the circle that the child almost never returns to after their first foray out into this dog eat dog world.

Genius, mildly fun, but great deeper meaning. One of the most brilliant and original games I've seen

My son is "special"

I find that if you just don't control the boy at all, he'll be strong to make up for his obvious mental deficiencies, kind of like Lennie from Mice and Men.

Decent game

I love the concept and the art, and I like how little control you have of your kid. However, I think he should come home every so often to heal up and maybe run from monsters who greatly outclass him. I just watched my 16 year old walk straight for the cyclops...

Fun, although buggt

I've had the game jump to the title screen, even though I was not dead. And I've got the warrior achievement, before my kid killed anything.
