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.

Can't explain why.

But it makes me feel a certain way. Regardless of whoever disagrees..

I like it.

I love this concept

The frustration gamers have with this game is the same feeling a mother has when her child has grown up and left, powerless to control the child she raised and can only stand and watch with the hope they succeed. And a hope to see them once again successful in life.

All of a sudden i see a medal saying magic pink man, look at the screen, and laugh.

Though it's not so much a game...

It really is a brilliant piece of work. If you shelter your children, they are inexperienced with the outside world and explore things that they aren't yet ready to handle, while if you neglect your child, they might not live a full life. It takes just the right amount of nurturing and freedom to be a good parent. While, it's not too fun to play, I can see what you're trying to do. You've captured what parenthood is all about so beautifully here, great work.

Genius, mildly fun, but great deeper meaning. One of the most brilliant and original games I've seen
