That was really clever! I liked the debug messages scrolling past the terminal while I was eating the cookies... :)

BTW: Win32 version works perfectly on Linux w/ WINE.

Graphics are very good and concept is clever, but you should have chosen better music :/

I love idea as well as the art style and music. It all fits together brilliantly. Good Job! :)

The feeling of dropping the cookies and pretending to not have eaten more than one is awesome ;) Very fun game, and I like the art style.

The art was quite nice, but a little plain in places. The game was simple but not the most fun. Also, I noticed if you picked up a cookie just ofter the Mum had left the door you'd get a game over. A nice use of the theme aswell.

Nice! It gets a little repetitive after a while, but the atmosphere kinda makes up for it. It looks and sounds quite professional actually...

Ha, this game is awesome. I'm going to go eat cookies now, and nobody can stop me!

Dec 16, 2013 @ 8:29pm

Really like the style, was happy to see that you don't get caught if you have your first cookie in your hand.

Sanguine says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 1:45pm

Really funny, but it feels a bit random when she catches you sometimes.

kookoon says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 2:13pm

Awesome cookie game! :D

Dec 17, 2013 @ 7:56pm

I don't think i've ever seen such graphics in a game before, they're awesome :)

dray says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 8:44pm

Really cool game, simple mechanic but fit well to the theme. Your music and art is very classy, really like your game. I want to eat all the cookies, a final objective like eating the full plate would be great!

Dec 17, 2013 @ 9:25pm

Yeah, that was my initial plan, to have a finite number of cookies on the plate and then change the graphics to a gradually less full plate as you ate them. Unfortunately I didn't have time to implement that, I had to work on a school project with some classmates most of the second day :/

Nice job, I liked the mechanics, were really fun to mess around with. Art style was pretty sweet too. Nice job!

It's been said, but the art is awesome and different. Audio is good but those cookie eating noises, god damn, eat with your mouth shut boy!

Great game, nice graphics, and tricky gameplay :)

viinnyk says ...
Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:53pm

really liked it. It seemed to hang sometimes when I ate and the mom would still catch me even though the cookie was supposed to be in my mouth... Not sure if that's an intentional feature or not. Also I had some trouble dropping a cookie when it was at my mouth. The art is great, and the game is simple, elegant, and extremely fun

Gorgeous drawings, and I like the music. I liked to pretend to be waving at mom, because it made me feel sneaky. Good job!

JohnnySix says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 12:54am

The danger, the pressure, the stares from Mom. Fun!

dcolgan says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 1:34am

Haha I love the premise of this game. Your characters are very funny looking and well drawn, and an excellent use of the theme. Also I didn't know Love2D could be done in the browser. Fancy!

Diptoman says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 6:53am

Cool drawing style! The hand felt kind of awkward. The fact that mom didn't leave unless you moved your hand away from the plate was- I liked that.

Dec 24, 2013 @ 10:50am

Haha, fun concept, nice graphics and sound!

mmickyman says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 1:04pm

Chara design are not my style (the mom scares me ahah) but pretty well done.

Nelien says ...
Dec 24, 2013 @ 1:17pm

Simple concept, but surprisingly addictive. The art is really nice :)

This weirdly reminds me of the strip dancing minigame in GTA V.

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.
