This game is very well made... Those jumpscares really got me hard though lol...

Also, I think there are two alternatives to this story:
You leave the house or you stay with Maya, regardless of your trust with Maya's story...

Thank you for playing! We're glad that you enjoyed the game :)


Well Done!!

Hi there, we're thrilled that you loved the experience; thank you for playing!


I don't usually play games like this, but wow... This is great! It actually made me jump. The scares were timed perfectly, and it was just all around creepy the whole time. Very nice. Are there different endings if you choose different replies?

Thank you for your kind words and for playing The Babysitter. We're thrilled you enjoyed (and were spooked by) the game. 

And yes, (without giving away spoilers, we can say that) although the fundamental outcome is similar, major choices do influence the way events play out in the third act. 


Great job with the music & art work creating a  delightfully foreboding atmosphere!

Thank you for your kind comment and for playing our game! We're glad you enjoyed it.
