Where’s Baby? is an award-winning asymmetrical multiplayer game. Each player assumes the role of a rowdy monster baby or a beleaguered babysitter, and respectively trashes the house while escaping capture or tries to fix all the broken furniture before slam-dunk the kid back in their crib.
From the developer’s web site:
Play as a baby critter, wrecking everything in the house and having a blast! Power ups along the way will help amplify your natural toddler abilities, including diaper bombs and a foot-powered pink plastic car (beep beep)! OR play as the baby sitter, and try to keep things together until the parents get home and the round ends! If you are lucky, you’ll be able to find a blanket, put that little guy to bed, and have a little peace!
It’s a Steam Early Access game that you can download for Mac or Windows for less than the cost of a bad cup of coffee. Currently included:
- Single Player AI Verses!
- Local Split Screen Multiplayer!
- Beta-ish Online Multiplayer (via Steam Chat’s Join Me Function)!
- 4 Power Ups for Both Sitter and Critter!
- 4 Sitters!
- 2 Critters!
- 2 Levels!
- And a whole lotta love!
One of the two critters is a baby werewolf who seems just as adorable as they are destructive, and the other is a baby vampire who – well, I’m not going to write profanity about a cartoon infant, but you know how I feel about vampires.
Here’s the announcement trailer, which shows some gameplay:
