It made me giggle. Nice idea + I love top down shooters :)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 2:23pm

That was... pretty awesome. I especially like the remixed children's song. Nothing beats swinging your baby from your umbilical cord into Lucifer's gaping maw.

5/5 on the mood for sure, even if it's a pretty disturbing, strange mood. Cool game with a crazy theme, and the gameplay was surprisingly addicting. Good job.

Well it was really fun :)

Nice responsive controls, addictive gameplay and awesome graphics! The humor fell a bit flat for me (not the subject matter, just a personal thing) but it's got a great mood! Good job!

Disturbing funny game, and the controls are really good.

The miracle of childbirth has never before been conveyed so accurately.

hehehe nice humor! I wasn't very comfortable with the aiming. Felt like I had little screen ahead of me. But nice overall!

That's an interesting kind of fishing. I was also not aware that babies are born with clothes.

Aug 29, 2013 @ 5:39pm

What a strange game...:D

The controls are very smooth and it was a good design choice to have the arrow point in the right direction like a compass. Also what a silly story!

This is one of the strangest and funniest games I've played. The woman goes through all that and doesn't get a happy ending?? Liked the messages at the end of levels

Crazy game, hahahahha, at first I didn't knew I could shoot (I thought that shooting would bring the baby out XD). Then I figured out I could shoot (Patim patim patim!) and things got easier. Game works quite well ^^ gratz

It took me a while to understand the rules of the game, but once I did, I loved it!
Good work!

Aug 31, 2013 @ 8:30pm

I love this game. Its so funny. XD I featured it in my Ludum Dare 27 video compilation series, if you'd like to check it out,

Thanks for all the feedback. The windows version is much more efficient then the web version try it if the web version is slow. Updated the page with a video playthrough

I guess you could say using childbirth as a mechanic is innovative...

I like that the 10 sec timer doesn't start until you move, nice design.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
