Baby Simulator

by tigerrenko - Jam Entry

It's not easy being a baby. Basically you just lay down doing nothing while your brain is rewiring and gathering info.

Sure, you can wiggle, coo, cry, poo or pee, but that's about it.

Still, can you be the best baby ever? Or will you be the doom of your parents?

Where the fuck is my rattle?

Interesting idea.. :)
As I see the mom is rendered from a 3D model, did you do the modelling, or used some tools like Poser or iClone5?
If so you could make more lifelike game by modelling the environment, and moving objects in front of the baby.
And there should be a barfing activity too. :P

I played the game. Then I went through an existential crisis, realizing that I had just played a game in which I cry and poop as a baby.

This will leave an impression on me for the rest of my life.

What the hell?

It also looks very polished, with a complete menu with save function and settings and all.

I don't know what to say about this... :D

woah, didn't expect so many comments, thank you guys!

@janovbyrnisson no didn't model it myself, mom is some free sample from DAZ.

i suck at graphics, have no talent as programmer, so I try to go for insanity :D

@Dritzzle again, kudos to RenPy it's awesome engine

Cheers and thanx for playing!

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
