Here is its eulogy, a collection of the kind words written about it while still among the living. They shall live on forever in its place.

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.


This game is amazing, but seems to reset whenever I scroll down with my mouse wheel. Running Chrome Version 23.0.1271.95 m.

Otherwise, I love the feel brought on by the background music, simple design/pixel art, and little secrets. The poem in the beginning sets a very good tone, as well.

Very great game. It really makes you think. I tried over and over again to beat this all the while screaming at the computer screen saying "NO WHAT ARE YOU DOING COME HOME NOW." And I realized, many things during that process. In the real world, we don't get 2nd chances with our children. And whether when to protect and to let free is the most difficult thing to decide. But, I ended up winning the game.
*SPOILERS* If you are determined just like I was, you might want to work for this ending.
I tried many times but I protected him until he was 10 and I let him go on free. He kept getting hurt but, when he reached the age of 27 the screen went black and it showed a little animation of him coming home and telling his mother about the wealth and the fighting and then he goes inside and the mother has a little heart bubble over her head. You then go to a black screen with the title and a button that will take you back to the menu screen. You get the motherhood achievement and idk about you guys but I am touched. I cried as if I was the mother because I tried many times with this game and the win was that much more gratifying.

Seriously worth trying to win. It's difficult but, that makes winning so much sweeter. <3

What are you supposed to do lol

My kid went of the screen for a while and just as I was about to give up, he came back, in his 20's, and killed the dragon. So just because of that awesome game. However, it is annoying when the mother gets stuck on the circle and when the game goes on a restarting loop..

this game is rubish but the tuns ar good=!
