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.

Interesting concept by way too buggy. Also, the instructions are not very clear. I have no idea how to get the kid back inside the fence once he goes out.

CLEARLY you have some major bugs that need to be worked out. It's an interesting little game of luck. But I've had the game suddenly restart, the mother get stuck on the border, and when the son kills a monster it repeats the explosion sound and animation until another monster is killed.

Good but

Needs a mute button and a few stuff in the game needs to be fixed. Also needs some better instructions on what you need to do and how the game works.

Other than that. Its good.

Too buggy

A neat idea, but like some have pointed out, it's kinda buggy, so I couldn't give it a higher score. One bug I encountered that I don't think was mentioned that after the kid killed a monster and I got the medal, the game suddenly reset even though he was still alive and kicking (which ticked me off, as I was set to get the adulthood medal).

It's a cool game, but those glitches take away from the enjoyment.

I really liked this, although there were a few things that bugged me <- get it? It's a pun. the bugs bugged me. First two-three times I played, I had to reload the page to be able to play a game because the game got stuck in some kind of a loop. My mother also got stuck outside her circle once. My kid's movement was a bit too random, he stayed on the right upper corner of the screen for a bit, hardly visible, which was a bit frustrating.

Other random things: I'd have preferred to be able to control the mother with the keyboard keys. I think it'd be nice if the mother could call out for her son when he's outside of the circle, increasing the possibility that he comes back home.

It's a great theme and I really enjoyed it and I think this is your best game yet. I wish you hadn't included an "artist's statement" though, those always kind of ruin it for me.
