Project Description

[rev_slider alias=”totc-2-head” /]


Little Bobby’s dead, the BBQ is on fire, Jen’s eating poisonous berries and the birthday cake still needs icing. It’s just another wonderful day out with the kids in Think of the Children, a chaotic task-managing co-op game for up to four players.


$9.99 USD

Jammed Up Studios

Hauled before the court for bad parenting and endangering your children, the prosecution present a series of events as evidence that will either condemn or exonerate you: a birthday party at the park, a trip to the beach, a day out at the zoo, a camping trip, being stranded in the Aussie Outback, and more. Play through each event in flashback to prove your parenting skills–and your innocence–to the judge.

Run solo or team up with other parents locally to play through each trip in flashback, making sure your tasks are done, the kids are happy–and ALIVE!–and every day out is a big success.






Multi-tasking mayhem

There’s never a dull moment when you’ve got the BBQ to tend, the tables to set, the kids are playing fetch with a rabid dog, and two of them just ran out onto the road.

Parenting is hard!

To get a good parenting grade and avoid jail time you’ll need to get all your tasks done, keep the kids happy, and – ideally – alive!

Nowhere is safe

The local park, the beach, the supermarket, the zoo – great places for a day out with the kids. That is, aside from the poisonous berries, ravenous seagulls, runaway trolleys and escaped gorillas…

All kinds of families welcome

Single parent? Two mums? A mum, two dads and a horse in a long distance relationship? It’s all good. Parent solo or in local co-op with up to four players.

As a parent fresh from the horrors of a long weekend, I relate to this video game so hard

Rapid prototypes, game jams and stupid ideas are the driving force behind this team of game developers from Brisbane, Australia. Think of the Children is their first fully-fledged game.
