shimeji?

is there a rhyme or reason to how he moves? I can't tell if he's effected by gravity or sections within windows or not.

Awwwwwwwww~

Really cool, got some sprites for hatsune miku

that's so cute! I want her too <3 where did you get it?

(+2)

Baba works through wine on linux, but it seems to interpret https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winuser/nf-winuser-lockwindow... this as locking the taskbar

This is incredible, thank you for posting. I immediately made a Neco Arc friend :3

Could you kindly post the sprites?

Sure I’ve uploaded them here https://crysopraise.itch.io/necoarc-friend, hope you enjoy.

(+7)

(+6)

(+1)

(+1)

I love this little guy. Looking forward to making my own set of sprites for it at some point.

(+6)

i had a goose and now i have a goose and baba

(+1)

Are you talking about Desktop Goose?

(+1)

yes

(+2)(-9)

IT'S A VIRUS

(+1)

cringe 😔

fr?

(-2)

yes

no

Why is this a virus those it do something illegal?

(+2)

This doesn't appear to be a virus. This is made by the real developers of Baba is You, so it's probably fine

(+3)

so cute :3 

(+2)

can you turn baba off? just wanting to know before buying.

(+2)

yeah. Like desktop goose

i have both now

yea you just need to right click baba then there should be an exit button and sorry for my bad englis im from denmark

(+2)

This is SO COOL. If it could be minimized to tray it would never leave my desktop, ever.

(+1)

:) hehe it's so cute...

(+2)

baba is friend

Just like Shimeji but better because it's baba <3

IT'S SO FRIGGIN CUTE I LOVE THIS

(1 edit)

Baba on the desktop is a experience every gamer should have.

(+3)

OH DEAR GOD i changed min and mx speed to 80 and baba is zipping across my screen I love it

Amazing game!

(+2)

really amazing

(+1)(-4)

Nightmare for people with ADHD lol
Their attention span would be 2 seconds until they get distracted by baba

(+5)

i have adhd and its cute not a nightmare

(+4)

same

(+1)

Seems like baba gets locked into one monitor normally, but i can drag baba to another monitor but then baba makes way back to the main one and cant leave it unless i drag baba to the other monitor

(+3)

that’s because baba prefers the first one. the second one? smells like cheese.

(+2)

I know it’s a lot of work and probably won’t happen but a Mac version would be appreciated

Wine works fine in linux-- I just need to figure out why it seems to take over the desktop manager completely... I cant interact with the taskbar while baba is friend :(

(+3)

accidently put in "sprite_folder=kiki" and it shrank my little baba into a tiny baba, also he loves to fall trough the floor now. 

(+2)

The tiny Baba is the default sprite if the program fails to find a sprite folder. However, when that happens Baba also fails to load a proper size and defaults to 0x0, causing the platform detection to fail.

(+2)

baba should have wall detection lol, wanna trap him inside the selection boxes

YESSSSS

(+2)(-1)

cuuuuuuuuute!!

wonder if there would be more reactions like, "drag baba into the recyclebin icon -> baba falls into the recycle bin"

also maybe it's better to add some kind of outline? baba now turns invisible in white backgrounds

(+2)

remarkable

(+5)(-3)

Time to mod my OC into it :troll:

(+7)

gently holds

(+3)

Lesss gooooooo

(+11)

Seeing the subject line "Hempuli released a new friend: Baba Friend" in my email absolutely made my day :)

(+3)

I never thought I needed this in my life.

(+2)

I couldn't pet baba a single time with a minimum pet speed of 10. I had to reduce it to 5. Also, baba is cute uwu
