Baby Sitter Simulator

by water2112 - Jam Entry

Our entry for our very first LUDUM DARE!! :D

We're only two guys who made this, we're not yet professionals but merely students. This is what we came up with when the theme was announced, don't expect that much, though we tried our very best to do this.


Ever wanted to be a baby sitter?

Well you somehow can now with this BABY SITTER SIMULATOR!

Plot: You are to babysit octuplets, meaning 8 babies. Those are really sensitive and crying is their only weapon for everything. Their cry is so loud that it can tear through and destroy the crib.

Goal: Provide every baby's needs to prevent them from crying, answer phone calls for bonuses.

The babies were getting on top of each other making it hard to distinguish. The colors should different. Overall, great experience. :D

Lovely graphics. Sets a nice mood. There should have been more colours to differentiate the babies. A bit too much blue. Nice job!

Interesting concept, I like the paper mario style turning of the babies although this cause a little bug, sometimes the crying baby stop while turning and thusly made it impossible to see what he/she wanted since they were super skinny. Also happened twice where the though bubble went out of the camera view when the baby was too close to the edge.

Anyways, these are just minor things, interest game you two, keep it up!

Thanks for all the lovely comments :), I'm sorry I was only able to get back to you guys this time because I was in a bit of vacation after. And thanks again, even though I admit, this game wasn't that good, and it even lacks of instructions >.<, I'm really sorry.

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. 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.
