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.

Not Bad

This game makes me feel like I've been such an asshole to my mom after all these years.

+ : Pink Man Rocks.
What a crazy forest to have a lil nice house.

- : Everything is too random. Makes me want to kill some monsters.

I'd rather a fun game than another art game

As an actual game it is not fun. You don't get to do anything interesting.

As an art game, it's way too simple and has seemingly no difference in consequence no matter what you do. I played five times in a row trying different tactics... it all ended very quickly and in the same way. You try to keep the kid safe, he dies. You let him go off by himself, he dies. No lesson is learned, and I didn't want to learn a lesson anyway. I wanted to have fun.

Good Game

Very good concept. It would have been good if the mother could go out of the ring but that's the game and that's the challenge so I don't blame it. But yeah. Good game. Very original.

Sometimes frustrating

Sometimes it's really frustrating because you get stuck along the circle and it's hard to move and stop the little brat. My child was unfortunately never able to handle himself though, even when he was strong enough to kill monsters he'd go run into the cyclops thing or something dumb like that.

The other thing is that it was going really well on one game and then my guy got to the side of the screen and was safe since he had killed everything around him - but then all of a sudden he like went off the screen and the game just completely restarted (as in went back to title screen). Is that supposed to happen? There was no "you win" or "your child has dissappeared" screen like how it shows a grave after he dies, so that's why I'm confused so if you could let me know if this was an intentional ending or a bug I would really appreciate it.
