Little Baby's Big Day At The Store is a violent collectathon rail-shooter than takes place in a strange supermarket. Made completely from scratch in just 10 days for #7DFPS!


Little Baby's Big Day at the Store is an on-rails-shooter where you control a baby in a shopping cart, grabbing products off the shelf before the store closes. For shoppers that get in your way and slow your progress, you have your mom's shotgun, but watch out for the store manager, Kyle.

Based on a true story, Little Baby’s Big Day at the Store follows a child’s journey through the narrow and chaotic rows of Schlutz Family Market, a local grocery store, desperately seizing vital nourishment. The indifference of the child’s mother, a prisoner to endless doom-scrolling and idle chitchat, is but one of many hurdles in the child’s mission to navigate the world of delicious sugary treats and repugnant vegetables. With the only tools available to him, a stretchy sticky hand and his trusty shotgun, the baby blazes and blasts through the aisles. Can he fill his basket before the lighting of the closing sign? Can he avoid ejection from the manager in the wake of his destruction? Press that download button to find out.

This game was originally built for 7DFPS. Our goal was to build a game that was not a first person shooter but was technically a first person shooter. After brainstorming we settled on an on-rails shooter where you would "shoot" the sticky hand to collect groceries. We decided that we needed to actually shoot some shoppers, but that came later.

We recorded our ideas in our "Jam Bible." We wanted PSX era graphics, 90s style store, Synthwave grocery store music, and metal for tantrum mode. We knew that there would be a boss battle with the manager. We wanted the baby to be rewarded for sugary treats and penalized for healthy stuff like vegetables, but we ultimately cut the idea of good and bad products to save time. Our original idea was to have the baby throw the bad products at the other shoppers, but we decided a gun would be more fun. Other ideas were scaled back but we certainly have a wish list of improvements that we would like to add after the jam has concluded.

Our team had only dipped our toes in 3D modeling and texturing before entering this jam. Learning new workflows for Cinema4D to Mixamo and from PS to Unity texture mapping were among the challenges. Additionally, we encouraged our team to veer outside of their lane of expertise for this project; our audio experts contributed to art, our designers did some audio, etc. We picked up some new skills and are now a more well rounded team.

The game is absolutely crazy! But a lot of fun. I just missed something that made it more frantic while picking up the products. Maybe items. I do not know. Great game!

I ran into Shlutz family market for some roach motels, avocados, and 9 volt batteries. Their low prices were no joke! At least the sad cashier wasn't laughing. I didn't realize that the asshole that my slut ex-wife is dating is the manager there. Saved a few bucks but barely escaped with my life. I'd shop there again.
