Think of the Children, a co-operative parenting simulator developed by Jammed Up Studios and published by Surprise Attack, will be releasing on October 19, 2017, according to a news post on the game’s Steam community page.
Anyone who has kids (or knows someone who has kids) knows how prone to injury the little buggers can be, and Jammed Up Studios sets out to bring that kind of experience to the PC with Think of the Children. Players take on the role of parents who must manage to complete the tasks in each level while simultaneously keeping their kids happy and (most importantly) alive. A launch trailer for the game was released alongside the release date announcement; have a look at it to get an idea of what the gameplay is like:
The game will feature a number of different levels, each with their own tasks to complete and hazards for your kids to recklessly charge into. A nice family barbeque means that the parents have to man the grill while ensuring that the young’uns don’t run out into traffic. A shopping trip to the grocery store can be complicated quite a bit when little Timmy decides to pull down half of Aisle 19 on top of his head. Players will be able to choose whichever parent characters they like to represent families of all different stripes.
If Think of the Children sounds like your kind of jam, head on over to the game’s Steam store page and add it to your wishlist or check it out on the Humble Store. It releases on October 19, 2017, at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time. No price for the game has been announced. You can also swing by the game’s official website.
