Good game

i love it

Ok, the teatcher really want to die in this game

(+1)

I like the art style but the gameplay is hard i don't know what to do!
a better tutorial next time

(+3)

I just wonder why in the world the children are given access to the fire xD  Also, good to know that at the end of each day it was knocked out children all over the place, rather then the remains of mass murder...which was what I first thought.

I like it!

(+1)

I like the game idea, but the difficulty is too high !
The only difference between days that i noticed was the amount of children.
It would be a good thing if we had a way to know wich child we are going to grab.
Great teamwork !

Not working 😭 32 bit

hahaha i literally watched Jonas's video about this game early morning and now im playing this game. Very well made, thanks guys. 

(+4)

After 2 game jams with Noa, Jonas finally got the camera to feel good

(+3)

Well.... Jonas didn't make the camera this time ;)

(+1)

Ahh, good job then. 

(+1)

Love it!!!

bathroom riots go brrrrrrrrr

The fights spread so fast..

oh yeah yeah... chaos yeah :)

nice game and great team

I don't know why this game wasn't featured. But I believe that frankly-- this is one of the most original games out there.

(+1)

"Alright kids, welcome to your first day of... What the heck!? Get out of the fire you retard!"

(+1)

Not bad game threw some kids into other kids and some kids in the fire and i think some  of them died but its fine.

(+2)

I read the controls before play the game

I am scared

Left the computer for 30 seconds. came back to kids cursing at each other.

Playing this game was quite nostalgic and enjoyable, some elements of the sound design was a bit off but overall it was a fun experience and high quality 

Gameplay of it is from 11:26 - 13:30

Its Always The Bathroom That Has The Most Sad And Angry Kids/

(+1)

not the most innovated idea, but the execution is top-notch

(+1)

suggestion: some sort of game over condition. you can do literally nothing all day, and other than a terrible score, nothing will happen

It became inpossible near the end and it made me luagh so hard, The best part of it is when they are all just leaving the school. Good job!

Ps: im a bit fan of all of you, made my day to see you made a game!

(+1)

This game made me understand why some of my primary school teachers left and never returned. I don't think I've ever felt so incredibly powerless before in any game ever haha! The first thing that I noticed about this game was the art style. I absolutely love the look of the game! I love the simplicity that it has to it, while looking incredibly smooth at the same time! The sound design was clean and the concept is great and very original! Very well done!

(+2)(-1)

just beat the children then they won't cause chaos

I really like the general idea and the basic functionality of the children’s behaviour. Also the soundtrack matches quite well. BGM and sound are often forgotten on so many games, not only indy ones.

I would like to have a bit more of options as a player though. Like ‘special move: clown’, ceasing all whining and half of all fighting in a circle of 5 meters around the player. Not sure if that should have a set cooldown of like 60s or being loaded by grabbing 20 children one after another.

But maybe that’s the limit what can be done in a (weekend?) game-jam. Good work!

Cool art style 👍

Do you have a discord? And if not, I can accommodate you a discord server? For your community?

I really liked this game! It really fits the theme. I suggest to add some kind of boost, like a "Super Caring Mode" the player enters in a state in which can grab and calm a lot of children! XD

(+1)

Big Momma mode to carry all those babies. Reminds me of Jack Jack and the baby-sitter from the incredibles extra's

Nice game,  the ideia is very interisting, but  I really come because the amazing draws of Noah  haha! Great Job guys!

So much chaos...


I love it!

(+5)

Did anyone else had a fight club in the bathrooms?

(+1)

Happens all the time lol

(+1)

I'm so happy this was the first comment I saw cuz I was literally coming down to say the same thing XD

(+1)

(+1)

(+1)

(+2)

This was hilarious. I loved it.

Another cool and original entry from the guys that inspire me to create games.

(+1)

omg yas another game from Jonas and Noa uuu thanks you all!! Wow I think it was really good one time I was freaking out how do teachers deal with kids aaaa lol 

It's a tough job! Though this is obviously exaggerated, I have massive respect for people doing this kind of job well.

yes ım really thankfull to all you guys did! 

(+1)

Took me a while to figure what i was meant to be doing as i`m the person that skips through the text.

Haha yeah an interactive tutorial would have been preferable but no time... Hope you still figured it out :)

(+1)

Wait there was point lost for playing with fire I thought they wanted to get warm :/ whoops

(+2)

Yes, being totally engulfed in flames is my fav way to get warm lol :D
