Kinda neat, but the womb looks a bit weird with the sharp edges in the lines.

Nice concept.

Gameplay is pretty simple, played till the end. And I'm not sure about bubble sounds. But good start anyway.

Neat-o! I think the graphics are really good here -- the colorful strokes of both the background and the baby are nice to look at. The heartbeat was a nice touch. Although, the way the baby grew *very* fast from medium-small to large (after growing from tiny to medium-small at a steady pace) was a little unsettling. Is that a bug?

Also, I don't want to start an argument, but seeing as this topic hasn't been mentioned in the comments yet, I'd like to open an idea for discussion: should this perhaps be protected as "inappropriate for children" or "possibly offensive content"?

Thanks everybody for sharing your comments and thoughts :)

@acotis Yeah, the fast growing at the end of the game is unintentional. We had not enough time to polish these kind of details.

Regarding to the other issue you've introduced here, don't worry, there's no problem about starting a discussion. We'll explain our point of view: we don't see how this game could be "possibly offensive" at all in any way, to any person or collective, but you are free to explain your reasons if you want to do so. We can understand the "inappropriate for children" concern, but as we've made a cartoonish representation of a womb, and not a realistic one neither showed an explicit birth secuence, for now we're maintaining the entry as it is. Anyway, thanks for your feedback ;)

That baby looks suspiciously like a bean ;)

Great idea for the theme but it definitely was an experience, kept thinking something was going to jump out!

Cute and creative! Not sure why some players would find this inappropriate or disturbing. When I read those views I prepared myself to encounter some sort of strong statement on abortion or infant mortality but instead I find a gentle rumination on one of the most natural processes in the world. Good work!

@Naca, my mistake, I agree that this shouldn't be marked as offensive. I was thinking of that marking as being a little less serious than it is :P I'll let you do as you see fit!

@panurge Thank you for your kind words :)

@acotis No problem, everything's ok :D Do not hesitate to share any other thought with us.

HAHAHAHAHA !!!!!

I guess it has been 28 years since i visited a vagina in this way ! XDDDD

Nice job, i laughed and smiled all the time, and the growing graphics are cool ! :)

Very simple. Surprisingly addictive. I played it through twice, b/c the first time when the fetus becomes baby sized I got stuck spinning at the bottom of the womb. Second play worked great. Lots of crying. Cool for a quick play. Would have been cool if the gameplay looked like ultrasound footage. Nice work!

After a few moments, I kinda realized what the theme was, but it was a really nice game to play! :) A great take on the theme!

It's simple to play, visually simple, but satifying and has some nice audio to complete the mood! Sometimes control felt kinda buggy, and I couldn't reach one or other nutrient ball, but that didn't interfere with the experience.

Good work there! :D
