Hahaha, love it. I didn't find the solution though! :O
I really like the simple, happy music, and the blunt pistol sound. Then - after the tragedy during this happy music - text explains the situation in a very comical manner, which is great. I missed a restart button though! Good stuff! Humor's up ;)

It looked likes you had a good idea to begin with but failed to flesh out the game. I could not figure out a way to save the baby. I tried shooting at multiple things all over the place!

I couldn't figure it out either, maybe there is no solution? lol.

The solution is right under your nose ... And legs ...

Ah, nice solution :)

It would have been cool if there had been other scenes to solve rather than just one though.

Dec 16, 2013 @ 9:20pm

This was oddly hilarious. Finally figured out the solution after reading the comments. Short but sweet.

Took me about 30 shots to figure it out!

Dec 16, 2013 @ 9:21pm

I couldn't figure it out either, lol, but I had fun anyway. Nice job!

Dec 16, 2013 @ 9:29pm

This is awesome! I'm not sure if its even possible to win. I keep giving that poor baby brain damage :(

The art style fits really nicely with you concept and its fun to play.

Really funny. I had to cheat and look in comments for solution, though.

Really funny game. But I must admit, that I had to look at the comments to find the solution.

Great job -- I couldn't figure it out, but it was pretty fun.

Hey I figured it out... once I resized my screen to be a little bigger...

My son is going to be the biggest drunk in town! I count that as a win!

Hahaha good one! I spent a bunch of time trying to find the sweet spot and when I finally did it, I thought I had lost it because of the consequences. Well done!

Spent a long time figuring out how to win. Eventually gave up and had to root through the code. I must say, this game has a very humurous and interesting way to win. I loved it.

Thank you, good sir. :)

Wow I'm honored to have had my source code thoroughly looked at! Thanks to everybody for the appreciative comments, this was my first LD48 and so far I count it as a success

Really fun idea, made me laugh while playing. Does it have more than 5 endings that I've seen?

There is some kind of point and click atmosphere, everything action you think has a real consequence in the game.
I laugh when I found the solution.

I'm not a big fan of the music.
The tone is appropriate to the rest of the humorous content of the situations/game, but the "midi" like quality of it made it pretty annoying, quite fast.

I must admit that I wouldn't have found the solution without looking first at the comments ^^

General humor of this small interactive story is pretty nice and works pretty nicely overall.

Good job and congratulations making a game during the 48h of the compo !

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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.
