  • Take care of young Billy while his parents enjoy a night on the town
  • Talk to your friends on the phone
  • Invite a cute guy over to watch scary movies
  • Be stalked, chased and murdered by the madman from your nightmares
  • Use your wits and whatever tools and weapons are available
  • Do whatever it takes to survive the night!

*Note1 - On Windows 10 the game may need DirectPlay to function. Try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XYyGB-Tn3g

*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

this is gay

What's the point of picking up the axe and swinging it if you can't even kill him with it?

You can kill him with it.

shut the fuck up nigger nigger nigger

How? Because I was watching John Wolfe and he was at the part where you need to shoot the killer in the garage. He ran out of bullets and switched the gun with the axe and swung at the killer, but it didn't kill the killer even though the killer was close to death.

Also is there a different I can play your games like Stay Out Of The House or Feed Me Billy without having to buy the game.

I am sorry sir, but I don't think I have understood what are you trying to say...

When it finishes installing the game it just exits out. I have DIrect play too. Also your email ben[at]puppetcombo.com doesn't seem to work. It says out of index range. 


Hi, are you using the itch.io app to install the game? If so, please contact support@itch.io and mention that it's not installing on their app. In the mean time downloading the .rar file in a browser and running it manually should allow you to play. Take care.

Alternatively, you could download it with a web browser.

I'm trying to run this on Windows 10. I have DirectPlay enabled and I can run the game in Windowed or Full Screen at 640x480 resolution. If I try setting it to anything higher in the game, it crashes. Does anyone have any insight?

In answer to your last question I'm using webroot secure anywhere for my security software

In answer to your last question I'm using webroot secure anywhere for my security software

btw I alredy had direct play on forgot where it was in windows 10 but found it and checked and it's  on. Like I said it's my security that won't iet me install the game,  i could leave it off but that would be stupid.

Sorry, I don't always see when there are new comments here. It's best to contact me at ben [at] puppetcombo.com so I can help you directly. Please provide as much information as you can such as what security software you are using. Thanks!

So I finaly got babysitter bloodbath to work this is what I had to do, btw direct play was not it, this is what it took, I had to go into my security software settings and allow these 2 things (acknex.exe & bloodbath.exe.)
Every time I tyied to install the game everything would copy over ?except those 2 files my securty software saw them as a ?threat, actuly I could not find where the settings were but the geek squad could I paid for the support when I purchised this computer may as well get my moneys  worth. Don't judge me I'm not a geek with computers but I'm learning?
Hope someone finds this helpful

In answer to your last question I'm using webroot secure anywhere for my security software

First off it's my security software that won't let me play the game or install it after turning off my internet and disabling my firewall the game works but as soon as i turn it on my security detects  it and deletes it, also where do I find that direct play in windows 10 I watched the video and tried what is showed but it's not there on my computer the video is about older systems

Same here can't install on windows 10 funny thing is power drill massacre by the same developer works fine'

what's up $2.25 for a game and nothing

hello want to enter a horror game in my horror jam? https://itch.io/jam/horror-jam1


Spot on with that retro aesthetic. Really neat stuff.

This game was so awesome i love the 80s movie vibes and the story of the game but it wouldn't save for me ;(


I watched Harshly Critical play this and knew I needed to play it myself. I love the throwback aspects of this, enjoyed the storyline, and liked the gameplay well enough. I'm really looking forward to future games from you! ^_^
