I like this concept  for the game but I'm not sure exactly what I'm supposed to do? Just hide until the next hour arrives? Could use more gameplay variety.

love this concept, really awesome idea!
I wish there were more gameplay concepts to explore, more things to do other than hide the child, then hide yourself. Maybe the monster should be willing to search for the child - look into the places she can hide, so you need to constantly trail the monster and distract him if he's getting too close to the child. Just more stuff to do.
But overall, it's a really great experience, with a lot of room to expand! Great work!

Yes, that’s definitely something I want to explore when I get around to making the full version. I’m glad you liked it, thanks for playing!

Nice idea and beautiful graphics! Only wish for some other solutions that need to be applied except for always the same, but great attempt! FYI I fear in the last level the game crashed for me - I hid the child in the closet and myself under the table, and the game won't end. Not sure if it's a bug. But I really like what I see!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback, I’ll have to take a look into that!

I’m glad you liked it!

Pretty graphics :) Very engaging, I think some more variation with the rooms would add a bit difficulty

Developer

Thank you! And I agree, thanks for the feedback!

Really cool idea! I love that you have to keep the kid safe, makes it much more stressful.

Developer(+1)

Making it chaotic was my favorite part :)

I really loved the game idea and also the art of it. The music fits well, congratulations. I got a lot lost on the beginning because I wasn't understanding what I should do, maybe put some tips somewhere would be good, again, congratulations, great game

Thank you, I’m glad you liked it! There were going to be alot of other elements added in, but it was a bit ambitious to think all of it could be added in the time frame.

nice to see some new concepts. It remind me of an old NES game where I should also hide

Developer

Definitely going for a more retro-vibe, thanks for playing!

I can see a big potential of this game

Developer

I like the game concept but it would be helpful to provide some hints on how to play for noob like me

Developer(+1)

Yeah, I was going to add in a kind of introduction to the game but I ran out of time, thanks for playing!

Hi
Are you able to upload a HTML or Linux version of this game so I can try it?

Developer

Sure! The original plan was to have it available primarily in HTML form, but I was having issues exporting it. I’ll have it up later today!

Submitted

Thank you for the effort ( I know I am the odd ball here

Developer

Don’t worry! I’m sure there’s other linux users that wouldn’t bother speaking up about it, :) so thanks

The HTML version is up now!

Hi PillowTalkStd, I liked the concept of hiding, not just yourself, but another helpless person from a monster. It adds additional difficulty and could be worth exploring more. With the horror vibe and all, it would be enhanced with jumpy scares or spooks. But secretly, I am glad I simply just died, cuz I'm a wimp and cant take that crap.

Overall, good idea!

Developer

Thank you! I’d love to make a full version of this one day.
