this game is scary my video i played to the end it has strong potential and was only created in 24 hours.


creeped me the freak out 


Great game concept!

Post Jam version was definitely more polished than the game jam version. Well done.

Manages to be both creepy and hilarious.  10/10, would throw baby across the room again.

Please fix it

Hi Hypnodani,

Thanks for playing! The glitch you found is a known issue and was fixed in the Post Jam Update 2 weeks ago. 

Checkout the latest version for a tonne of polish, bug fixes, music and a full rework of the ending sequence :)

i watched the captiansauce video this game is so cool lol

I think the only thing I can say is that I'm a terrible baby sitter. Having said that, can you really blame me with this baby though? 

(1 edit)

I made a video on it. Fun game

 i liket its cool game

Worst babysitter right here <---- :D :D :D 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Po1nA73mAbo heuheuehuehueheu nice game, i like it :D

Got jumpscared right out of my skin. Well done!

how do you play the game

  1. Download the zip of the version you want (Post Jam is the newest) 
  2. Right click the zip file and "extract all"
  3. Run the game by then double clicking GMTK2020.exe

Wow, that baby is NOT as cute as it looks - LOL! Nice short horror game Team Terrible.

Error the baby in yellow the ue4-gmtk2020 game has crashed and will close HELP ME

I liked this game :D
It's simple but I like it. Horor games with babies are even scarier imo.  The performance was a little bit meh but it didn't really matter in this game.
I really liked that one jumpscare where that  baby became demonic, it got me, not too hard but it got me. Also I really really loved how when you were picking the baby up from the changing table, you wanted to put it to sleep but it teleported in front of the stairs and you could see his eyes being red for like half a second, that's where I started to get chills, that was a really really nice horror element. Also when you had to get Talisman, that music was playing and it sounded like a "chase soundtrack" and it would've been even better if the baby chased you and then when you get the Talisman, it teleports back to the changing table and out of the sudden theres no music anymore as soon as you pick up the Talisman. That would've been a cool idea! :) I also loved how the baby looked (sad) at you when you had to carry it to the cot for the last time!
Thanks for this experience!



Thank you for playing and for such a detailed review. We really appreciate all the cool ideas too! 

We did a performance pass as part of the Post Jam Update, but the scene is still fully dynamically lit and the geo isn't cut up very well, so occlusion culling is mostly redundant and shadow casting lights are unnecessarily expensive haha. Mostly a function of taking shortcuts for the jam though :)

I try my best to give as much/the best feedback I can give and also, I am very honest with my reviews even if it's a 2/10 or 1/10 I would still post a comment (and of course with explanations and examples of why I didn't like the game or what I didn't like about it). 

And thank you for explaining the cause of performance problems to me. As I said, it didn't really matter in this game :D Still enjoyed it! 
Though as I can see...the others didn't have problems with FPS/performance...but why?
My specs are:
CPU: Amd Ryzen 5 3600
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050ti 4GB
Ram: 16GB
Should actually run quite good or not..?

Have a nice day! :)

This game will probably traumatize every babysitter out there 🤣

I think people would think it's cruel the way I treat the demon kid, but I think it's justified by the fact it's a DEMON KID!

yo i'm back  how long should the mac  version take

I've had a build sitting on my mac a little while but it's an old 2012 mac mini and runs at 10fps :D 

Would you be interested in testing the build before I upload it to itch.io?

Contact us at teamterribledev@gmail.com and I'll send you a download link!


My PC couldn't run it at 60fps and there were no visual settings, but I still got to play and record it just fine :) 

It was fun, I expected the baby to be a lot more hellish with creepy sounds, though. 

Please check out the video and my channel: VladMan. Thank you!!


Hey VladMan thanks for playing, it looks like you played the original jam version (made in 48 hours). We have made a number of performance and gameplay improvements since, including sounds, music, a reworked ending and new jump scares in the Post Jam Update version!


Oh, I see! I'll check it out as well :)

I just liked throwing the baby to be honest. It's truly a shame that I couldn't actually kill it... uh, I mean take better care of it. ;)))). But seriously, It was a good game. Improve on it a little bit and it will be amazing

Great game! enjoyed it! :D

So so creepy

Horrorcrawler Please do not re-post videos, it's unfair on other commenters.

Loved the post jam update! This game keeps getting better! Please check out my play through below 

Jogo bom,  comprova que não sei cuidar de um bebe


(Your game starts at 29:02)

Now this is a hilarious premise.
Babies are weird and unpredictable, after all. And playing that for strange horror is a great idea. There are plenty of sudden surprirses I adore, and the sheer uncanny valley creepiness of the baby model itself works wonders for the game,

I actually first played the Jam version, which did feel underwhelming, before playing your upgraded version for this video, and was delighted to still find a few surprises.

I would love to see this game expanded upon - I feel like it could become equal parts strangely hilarious and genuinely terrifying if it had a slower buildup. At the moment, it barrels from zero to sixty very very fast, which is admirable in and of itself - and the fact that I want more demon baby shenanigans should be taken as me saying I want more of this weird and wild little game!

Great job, folks.

Oh god, that baby is so creepy. Very well done, especially for a jam game!

A very creative game

This is excellent! Great job! Really enjoyed the escalation XD

I turned the game off but the baby turned it back on. JK, this was great!

really nice game i wish me a second part
