The Baby Eater

by sararyCow - Jam Entry

Who is the biggest monster of all times? No one but the Baby Eater! A well known character in every corner of the planet. Each culture names it differently and adds its own character features, but every child of the world has heard about it from his parents. This guy who eats babies and kids actually exists! Here is on his place playing how many babies he can eat on a row without eating anything else.

Help the Baby Eater commit his babycide game eating with X or right arrow and letting pass with Z or left arrow.

Eating babies while lookin' like a spider. Truly being a monster. Also very hilarious.

It was simple but I had a surprising amount of fun with this. The animations and sound made eating each baby or disregarding shit satisfying.
The keyboard controls didn't work for me and using the mouse made it much harder.

Goofy and fun, as much as child eating can be I guess.

The keyboard controls could be refined bit.
Pressing left, towards the monster, should eat, while pressing down, towards the floor, should discard.

At the moment I keep discarding babies on accident. What a waste!

Baby: the other OTHER white meat. Baby: it's what's for dinner.

So simple but still pretty entertaining. I found myself laughing at the concept of sorting out babies and eating them.

Super hilarious ! The keyboard controls didn't work, and the mouse didn't work well either (i had to click several times but maybe tha's just my laptop :/). But that's a funny game :D

This game is clearly a critique of social segregation and consumerism. Monster in a suit(!) obviously represents the middle class preying on the young generation (babies) delivered to him by conveyor belt - symbol of hard labour. Is our children future to be mindless drones in factories of the rich?

...

HAHA, NOPE. It's a game where you LITERALLY EAT BABIES. There's not much to the gameplay and visuals are very raw, but hilarious concept kinda makes up for it.

Pretty fun! It needs a little more responsiveness when you press a button.

Aug 30, 2015 @ 9:05am

Great fun! More difficult than you realise, I think this would work amazing as some kind of bizarre rhythm action game!

Haha, this is a funny game. I liked the eat animation and it was pretty funny trying to go as fast as I could skipping anything but the babies!!! :D

Oh dear.

Actually, this would be much more fun if you didn't have to wait for the animation/delay for eating babies. That way you can eat babies without stopping.

...i can't believe i just said that.

Love the graphics! Cool game. I included it in part 23 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/isROeWsQRB8

Quite crazy! Imho, I would have let the hunger bar grow when you are skipping babies (because you are not eating) so you are in a hurry to skip faster to get to the babies.
As it is now you always have the same amount of time to react to each "turn".
Also it doesn't make sanse to satisfy the hunger while you are not eating.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
