*Note2 - Babysitter Bloodbath should be played in 4:3 resolution (with black bars on the sides of a 16:9 monitor). Playing in widescreen will make it look stretched. For best results, manually adjust your monitor resolution to 1024x768 and adjust the Scaling Mode on your video card. Here's some more info Running 4:3 games on a 16:9 monitor

hey, ive been digging into your games and am a big fan! im having an issue with BB. The very first time i ran the game, i was able to get it to go into fullscreen mode. now, every time since, every time i try to go fullscreen, my screen flashes, and i get tabbed out of the game onto my desktop. after that, when i try to tab back into the game, it crashes. any ideas?
hello, I have recently bought this game after seeing kubz scouts play it and I was supper motivated to buy it but once I downloaded it I was having trouble actually getting in the game. I found the troubleshoot tutorial and my first problem was that my file didnt download on google drives I of course thought nothing of it and just uploaded the file onto google drives. Then I continued with the tutorial but then I ran into my next problem, my file didnt end with .zip I again thought nothing of it and tried to continue but when I tried to open my file this popped up....The game may not work due to the fact that Im trying to download this on my laptop but anyways I tried to press the open button but it wasnt working any tips?

hilarious new puppet combo video up check it out i'm sure you'll laugh and enjoy :)
HI im a small youtuber TheElectroDiamond and i have purchased babysitter bloodbath is there a way i can play this on mac cause i only have a macbook
PuppetCombo, the game is very good even what is missing is two things, a version for Android and iOS and subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese to make it very very good♡♡
i downloaded everything i had to, and the files to play never show up anywhere
god dam ridiculous! I’ve jumped through hoops and still can’t play it. Either itch says I don’t own it (which I do!) or it says error because of “build”. This is absolutely fucking stupid it’s this difficult.
We really enjoyed playing & discussing Babysitter Bloodbath on Indie Game Club (it’s like a book club for indie games)!
You can watch the video here:
Keep up with Indie Game Club from POTIONS & PIXELS here:
We are going through the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality!
This is good stuff!
at the beginning. After asking for the parent's phone number, the dialogue options come up but they're not clickable.
How can I download your game?
At the part where jack screams, I went to open the door and when I pressed space it blackscreened, and I was unable to select other programs by alt-tab, windows-tab, or close the game by alt-f4. After a restart my PC audio isn't working.
having some issues with the game. It opens then closes and won't run.
p.s this game looks super cool
i love this game so much haha
Hello, whenever I try to open this game, I get an error message saying "Problem with WDL script" or something, what can I do to fix this?
Thank you. I already have Direct Play enabled, though. :/ What is the difference between acknex.exe and bloodbath.exe? Whenever I click on bloodbath.exe, the computer makes a sound, but nothing opens. When I click on acknex.exe, I get the "Problem with WDL script" popup and then it closes down. My computer is updated. Power Drill Massacre works, but not this game, for some reason.
hello puppet combo i still cant play the game and i really wanna make this video and support you guys plz help me
After some issues getting it to launch and mapping the controls using XPadder, I was really enjoying it. The alternate camera options are fantastic and each do a great job of keeping the tension. There are a few angles in the "movie" option that end up just being frustrating, though- like in the liquor cabinet room- but they're generally great. I did run into a really big problem, though. Right after going into the backyard, the game crashed and locked up my computer. I couldn't close the game and had to forcibly restart my computer. I also can't seem to save the game and then be able to reload the save. It doesn't show as existing despite the act of saving getting confirmed. I really want to play more of this game, though- it has great promise so far.
Thanks for the comments. I haven't receive any other reports of the game crashing in the backyard like that, so it could be a fluke. I think most issues with the game are due to antivirus interference. Adding it to your antivirus exceptions should have. Did you press enter after typing a file name while saving?
i just purchased the game and i cant play it because it says iant play babysitter cant play it just like launching the app is the problem plz help me puppet combo im a huge fan of your games i have a windows 10 laptop and i cant play babysitterbloodbath plz help me i really wanna play this game for the first time
I can't seem to gt the game to run in full screen despite selecting that option. Is it something with my computer or is the game bugging out?
nvm turns out I just needed to run my display in 800 600 resolution
try pressing alt + enter
Hi there, are you planning on any more physical copy runs for your games?
How do you save the game?
Use the vhs tape on the vcr
Just absolutely terrifying. I'll probably never beat the game due too not being brave enough to repeatedly face the reveal haha.
What was Jill’s number again? Do I have to restart the game to get it? Edit: Checked a YouTube playthrough, it’s 555-8345.
How do you get this game running on Windows 10?
Edit: And DirectPlay is not the problem, trying to launch the game from its folder turns direct play on if its turned off.
I can't save my Game. I try to fix 3hr later... I need to know what the file type is for the saves?
Hi. Really a nice throwback game, I quite enjoyed it. But I would have enjoyed it even more if it had controller support. I mean you are basically emulating PSX games like Silent Hill or Resident Evil, right? Tank controls are better with a gamepad imho...
Thank you. It does actually have controller support. Have you tried mapping a controller?
Sadly it doesn't recognize it when i try to map the gamepad buttons. I'm using a DualShock 3 Controller, but with a driver that is emulating a XBox Controller so it should regognize it as such....
Hi, *Not Spam BTW* but I'd suggest you use a program called Xpadder to map your controller. It's like 10$ and it'll take a little time to get used to it but it's worth it. You can map any USB input device to any game. I've used it to map thrusters and throttles to Kerbal Space Program and Lunar Flight and my friend has used it to map World of Warcraft to an Xbox controller. Although I wouldn't recommend the latter lol. I'm just saying it's possible.
i cant find remote
Hey, Puppet Combo. I'm not sure whether if this right or not, but it appears that Webroot, my anti-virus says this game, particularly "bloodbath.exe" is malware. Is this a mistake due to how the game is coded or something?
Yeah, it's a false positive. Since it's basically a Windows 98 game, some modern computers freak out and wonder why the hell you're trying to run it and assume it's a virus.
Like the Halloween movies but Myers jumpscares you by appearing from seemingly nowhere more than ever.
Is there another recommended guide to getting this to display correctly on wide monitors? The Steam link doesn't actually take me to a thread. :(
I guess that thread was deleted. It's pretty simple though, you would have to manually set your resolution in Windows before you play. 1024x786 or 800x600 would work. You could also play in Windowed mode for the correct resolution.
Dang maybe I will have to play in windowed mode, because even after I change my resolution, things stretch out when playing fullscreen. I wanted to be fullscreen so I could record while playing and have it look correct in the video, but I don't know if that's possible?
Has anyone had any luck with this one and wine/linux? I installed directplay via winetricks, but acknex.exe crashes.
