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.

YOU'RE 10 AND IN NO CONDITION TO FIGHT AN ELK

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.

A mediocre first try

A cute little idea with a very bad execution.
Things I learned from this game:

- Opposite from what common legend tells, mothers will not fight bears for the safety or their children. Or bats, or spiders, or bunnies. They will stay close to home while the child goes off into the woods.
- It's useless to try to direct your child towards character building activities because his pathing is on random-walk.
- When you use the play() command you damn well put a stop() command elsewhere otherwise your game will endleslly loop between loading, title and game screens.

If you think I'm being harsh, the bears farther off the jungle will be even harsher.

I enjoyed it and got a nice ending

You CAN end teh game with out him dying, if you wait a bit till hes old enough to have like 3 to defend himself he can grow to adult hood ( medals dont register)
and lil Junior actualy gets older(21)and returns home and you get the ending, Just keep him from heading where the ogre is,let him venture in areas he can do stuff to small monsters, prooblem is that its all random so this is almost useless. BUT if you make it to adulthood no matter how much you protect him, hes still gonna leave anyway fail or win, like life. Game has some bugs like mom sticks to the circle and cant move anywhere, or the game restarts on its own.
