Here's a random one for you: Jammed Up Studios and Fellow Traveller have announced that the "frantic co-op parenting simulator" Think of the Children will be available on Switch next week.
You've been a bad parent, therefore finding yourself at the 'Court for bad parenting' where the prosecution presents a series of events that will either condemn or exonerate you. You'll need to successfully manage a birthday party at the park, a day at the zoo, a camping trip, an unexpected visit to the Australian Outback, and more, but these locations feature deadly hazards and your ridiculously hyper children just aren't a good match.
Players can team up with other parents to get control over the kids together, or you can also fly solo as a single parent to play through each event. The game clearly has a co-op focus, however, and success depends on you working together, getting your tasks done, and most importantly, preventing the kids from being run over, eating poisonous fruit, or jumping headfirst into a washing machine apparently.
Multi-tasking mayhem: There’s never a dull moment when you’ve got the BBQ to tend, picnic tables to set, some of the kids are playing 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… KEEP THEM 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, towering grocery shelves and electrified pens.
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. Name and customise your parents and children the way you want them, and save them individually or as a family. Parent solo or with up to four players in local co-op.
The game will be available on Nintendo Switch from on 25th September priced at $12.99 USD. Think of the Children released on Steam towards the end of last year, going on to receive 'mostly positive' reviews.
