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.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good concept

It's a good concept and good game, but it would be so much easier to keep track of the boy if i could move around with wasd or arrow keys and if I could move through the house like he could, he just runs off and gets killed.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

it's ok, but...

My stupid kid keeps running out of view of the screen and getting killed. Reading through other rewiews, I especially like the idea of being able to call the moronic kid back. I do like the idea of the game, and i do find it interesting


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Uh, what?

So as a mother my job is to shove the kid around until he goes outside a 10m radius from my house at which point I leave him for dead?

What type of family did you have sir???

Any particular reason we can't:
- Leave the circle
- Give advice
- Train the kid in survival tactics
- Make weapons
- Make health kits
- Call him back
- Go with him and kick some ass
Et cetera?

It's cute and all but leaves a lot to be desired. If there's a sequel how about some sort of guardian spirit that's tied to a location, thus explaining some things? +1 on my rating because I WOULD like to see a sequel...

Its not much of a game

It seems like it would have more of a game aspect if you could influence movements, like calling the child home, but just shoving them around while they are in the circle is lame
