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.
-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.

Interesting concept. Would like to see it above the "how long can you keep the child inside the borders before he eventually escapes and you won't be doing nothing in which point you will switch to another tab/window and see something else and just come back to see if he died or not and then rinse and repeat" mechanic :)

Good concept (with much bugs but good concept anyway) you are a mother and you need protect your child, but let explore the world for be more powerful.

Getting my little man to grow up was more rewarding than a lot of AAA games.

I really like it, simple. Watching your curious son grow, while stopping him from wandering off where you can't protect him. It made me realize how scary being a parent could be: should you let them discover life of their own or shelter them from danger; I guess you strive for the perfect balance. It especially made me worried when he strayed TOWARDS the monsters and I couldn't do anything about it, but watch. Overall, it's nice.

This game is five stars.... but it's glitchy. Every time the kid is really killing it it restarts to the beginning screen and you can still hear 2 tracks playing and random achievements pop up.... (Ones I have usually)
