A downloadable game for Windows



Velocimom is a game where you have to gather as many snacks that are required to complete the level. You do this while simultaneously trying to go unnoticed by your relentless velociraptor mom who is patrolling the house. How far would you go to satiate your late night cravings? 


Story: 

Hugo is supposed to sleep but his sweet tooth is keeping him up at night. He has developed a habit of sneaking snacks to his room in the middle of the night to satiate his cravings. His mom eventually caught on to his behaviour and has started to stay up late to make sure Hugo doesn’t leave his room. To his surprise, mom never really looks or acts like her usual self when the sun goes down. All he knows from his vast knowledge of dinosaurs is that he probably should remain perfectly still within her proximity.

Wow! it's my favorite game!

Very Freudian "My mother won't feed me enough and is a cold-blooded reptile who wants to eat me". Food for a convention of psychiatrists. Hatred for blondes also.

None of the above is serious,  it's a nice free game. Enjoy.

Thank you for trying our game! :D

Haha! Awesome vid, thanks mate! :D

Hello, I'm one of the programmers. We're working on getting a Mac version up and running, it will be done hopefully within this week. We'll make sure to ping you once it's done!

Yay! Can't wait to try it out!

You had me at "Relentless Velociraptor Mom" XD

So much fun this game, would totally love to see more levels added to it.


I truly didn't know what to expect when I came in. The art was very well done, I love the design of the mother.

Concept is really fun, I know I did this plenty of times when I was younger and it really brought back fond memories of quietly chopping off a block of cheese for my crackers while my parents watched late night TV in the next room. They were, well, human though.

I feel like the mechanics are pretty well balanced. I'm not sure if I was slower when holding more food, but I feel like I was, which helped me decide if I should do multiple trips or one slow one. Having to time out my breathing when she's near, or drop everything in front of me so I don't lose the lot was really fun. 

There were a handful of bugs but nothing too damaging. I think I did my winning run without distractions (and I never fully figured out how to search?) but they didn't take away any pleasure I had playing.

Hope to see more of this in the future! I had a great time, thank you for the title!

Hey there Sawyer!

One of the programmers here, first of all thank you so much for trying out our game, and even making a video about it (Great video btw). 

The search function is a bit tricky, as it uses the arrow keys instead of WASD. We unfortunately did not have time to properly communicate this, as time before release is usually very busy. I'm not sure what the plans are for the near future of Velocimom as we are heading onto new projects, courses and gamejams at YRGO (Our university), but if we do release an update this will definitely be in it.

I'll write it again here at the bottom so more might see it, but:

The search function on the Sofa and the Fridge uses the Arrow keys, when you're above an item you add it to your inventory by pressing the E key.  

You can exit the Sofa and the Fridge by pressing ESC (Escape key).

Thank you so much again for playing our game! :)

Edit: Missed a word

Ooooh, okay that makes sense. I was worried I was doing something wrong or my computer glitched it out, haha.

It was a lot of fun! I'm taking a look around your other work now!

Thank you! For all of us involved in making Velocimom, this was our first ever released game. It was an insane milestone for us to hit and we will be making more things in the near future, with 3D projects coming up. 

We are making this as part of our education at our university YRGO where we study to become game developers (as either a game programmer or a game artist). 

We will be making more games in the future, so stay tuned and check out other projects from our university in the meantime :) https://yrgo-game-creator.itch.io/ I have some really talented peers who are making amazing stuff there.

Hiii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefuly it is useful to you ^^

-The concept is actually quite cool ^^

-The gameplay mechanics are quite fun, and the only thin that I've seen that could be improved a little bit is the difficulty curve since it feels quite hard right from the start until you do a few runs, but then the difficulty "stays" the same.

-The visual style of the game is really good and I really love it, the only thing that could be improved is the "Velocimom" animations as sometimes it just feels robotic in comparison with the main character.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)

Regards

Hi there! Just want to say I really appreciate the feedback, due to some issues during development we could not get a lot of playtesting from an outside perspective so this is super useful!

I went ahead and subscribed to your channel, thanks for helping getting us out there :)

Awesome thank you so much ^^. Good luck with your future projects :D

I Like the concept and for some reason i had a heart attack when i first saw the raptor. But it needs a bit of polish, the movement of both the character and the raptor is a little clunky and it could do with a few map changes.

Its a fun concept that needs some polish and added Replay value.

I have a problem where I cant exit out of the couch when I search it.

Hi, thank you for playing our game! You have to press esc to exit the searchable areas. Hope it helps! 

Yep perfect. This game had me the second I saw the name really fun, love the concept.
