GTFTSTG - Go the Fuck to Sleep the (not) Game

by aquasheep - Mini LD Entry

Welcome to Go the Fuck to Sleep the (not) Game based on the best-seller "children's book" Go the Fuck to Sleep.

You are a parent stuck at home one day to take care of the new baby. See how long you can get the baby to go to sleep for. See if you go insane. See if the baby will never go to sleep. It's different every time! Experience the life of a parent where order and chaos, happiness and insanity are only a click away.

To run, just download and run the .jar file. Works for all platforms! I recommend the desktop version because in the web version, some items are inexplicably displaced, but both are functional (web is better in Chrome; will not work on IcedTea plug-in). Enjoy!

Many thanks to the following people for using Creative Commons to distribute their work (and special thanks to the makers of Baman Piderman for inspiring a cameo)!

Thanks for the comments all! I'm glad it's had the intended effect. ;)

It was a lot of fun to make although sometimes it was a bit of struggle considering how much I've heard that baby cry...

As for the loading bar, I need to look into that; something's wrong with the loading image.
