*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.

I'm late playing this legendary game, puppet combo never misses. Once again great game, I cant wait to play all the other masterpieces. 

I'm Brazilian and I made a complete game guide with map.

finally hopped on this game, gonna start playing all of your games. i couldn't beat it lol but maybe i'll go back one day 

i downloaded a puppet combo game it says problem with WDL Script fatal engine error E356

Same here :(

Very cool game

I love the puppet combo game.

I know I'm late to the scene but I plan on catching up on your games! I just beat this game as my first one! I absolutely loved it. The comedy, horror, and dynamic aspects of the game were just a blast. The gun is really hard to aim but it did add more the horror element. There were a few bugs such as a red block appearing on my character at times, and if I opened a door too fast the character model get stuck outside. I thought the dialogue was my favorite part about the game. Overall, it is superb and can't believe I haven't played this game sooner.

My game crashes during the opening credits after the designed by portion? Does anyone know why that might be?


I'm not sure but please try the tips here: http://puppetcombo.com/troubleshooting

pinky is it an "E" on yours as well because everytime i download it the game pops up as an internet icon & wont even play or open

i can´t play in full screen, 

my game gets small and everything around gets black 

Go to options and change the video from window to full screen. That’s what helped me.

Still one of my favorite gameplays! 

Finally made a vid for this seminal classic. Love your work!

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?


Did You Ever figure out how to fix this issue? IM having the same problem. If so tell me how.Thanks

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? 

A demo gameplay (Night Shift)! I am from Malaysia! I play the game ! I wants to share puppet combo , let everybody knows about it!  

Here's my playthrough! 

Thanks for making this game! :)

Finally added Babysitter to the playlist, always a pleasure to revisit :)

No Commentary

Played the game on our channel... there are a few REALLY good screams in there most of the way in. So classic and enjoyable. Thank you! 

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. 

Hello I had a problem similar to this what fixed the problem for me was to download a free version of Winrar

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:

Twitch + Facebook + YouTube

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

Hi, have you tried the instructions on the troubleshooting page? http://puppetcombo.com/troubleshooting

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?

Hi, try the instructions at http://puppetcombo.com/troubleshooting

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. 

Try following the installation instructions. It's got nothing to do with directplay. You have to unzip the files before running the game. I can't give support in the comments section for obvious reasons but you can find my email on the support page: https://itch.io/support

hello puppet combo i still cant play the game and i really wanna make this video and support you guys plz help me 

Can you contact me at the support email? You should be able to find it with the game at https://itch.io/my-collections

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?

If I remember right, I clicked a confirmation button- been a bit since I tried, sorry. I'll give it another shot today- no hurricane to interrupt this time lol

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 

Hi, please try the instructions here: http://puppetcombo.com/troubleshooting


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?

There will be a new one coming soon.

How do you save the game?

(1 edit)

Use the vhs tape on the vcr

Where can I find more VHS tapes? Or can you only save your progress once?

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.

(1 edit) (+2)

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.

Well what ever. . .

I can't save my Game. I try to fix 3hr later... I need to know what the file type is for the saves?
