Really fun!

(1 edit)

Dude your game is amazing. Damn it got me so excitedddddddd....!!!!

Hey friend, 

When is the switch release date dir this game? It says autumn :D  will it bei released for christmas? :))

Unfortunately the date has been pushed to early 2019 :( I've forgotten to update that in some places, I'm afraid. The reason was that I would have had to rush too much to get it released this year (the release would have had to be in November because December is a very difficult time for releasing an indie game (especially on Switch due to Smash))


Game of the year, every year, for ever and ever, to the END OF TIME, and even then PAST THAT!!!

Thank you very much!

I think I finished the game. Does it just loop back to the first puzzle at the end? No ending or anything, right?

Yup, that's it for the jam version :)


Between what might be the most briliant implementation of what I can only call "environmental storytelling" and the "aHa!" moment I had when I first truly understood the implications of that, this is one of the most joyous forays into stripped down puzzle games I've experienced. Kudos, I've been here for three hours so far and plan on installing this on every computer I have for the forseeable future.


Thank you very much! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed the game to that extent! :)


Really fantastic concept.



This was Super.  Fun.  Also, there hasn't been a good puzzle game, especially of this quality, in a year or two.  I would easily pay for early access for this on steam if you did it, i think others would enjoy it as well.  Hope to see more than the 15 levels available soon, thanks!


Thanks! I feel that block-pushing-based puzzle games have been thriving more in the recent years thanks to Puzzlescript and such. In case you're interested in Sokoban-inspired games, I recommend Pipe Push Paradise, Snakebird & of course Stephen's Sausage Roll.

I tested the demo and the game is great. I'm dying to play it on my Switch. Thanks.

Thank you! :)

have you an ETA for swtich version? I'm following your blog and loving every advance in the game. Good luck with your project 

I think there'll be news about the release dates pretty soon! Possibly not exact dates, but some info in any case. Thank you!

Is this the latest publicly available version?

Yeah; I considered updating this using the new engine but thought I'd rather just finish the full game instead.

How do you grab things?

(1 edit)

You can't; if you push an object into a corner, you can press Z to undo (which kinda looks like grabbing them); the full game will have a separate "Pull" word that works like grabbing an item.

I had so much fun with the levels as well as with the editor! (wish the order of the menu were more tidy but oh well)
Can't wait to see the full version!

how do i get to the editor?

Thanks a lot BlueJackalope! The menus should be better in the full version :D Blaze: There's a button that opens it; on a Nordic keyboard it's §, but I've heard people mention ~ being it on other keyboards. Apparently | or \ may also work.

ok thanks, by the way, if you make a sprite editor and a way to export to .exe files, you could make baba is you a game engine. of course a lot of other things would need to be done, like making objects invisible =, and adding other things, but you could definitely do it 0w0


Haha, that'd be funky. I think the main problems would be the compiling-to-exe you mentioned and most importantly optimizing the game to be able to create more than just really simple things. It's a cool idea, though :D

Editor doesn't work for me :(

Super hype for the full release.

I dumbly picked a key that isn't the same on all keyboard layouts for accessing the editor :( Sorry about that

(1 edit)

It's a logic puzzle, literally. 10/10


Absolutely amazing puzzles! i played it till the last level and every level was just great. i would like to play Baba is you 2. great concept and gameplay.  :D (if you're in comments to see how cool this game is, don't go further and download it right now!)

Fantastic! :)

Just wanted to chime in and say that this is the most unique puzzler I've seen in a LONG time and I can't wait for the full version!  Found you via the winner's semis of the Mystery Games Tournament:

(1 edit)

Hi, I start the game but only black screen here, did I lack something? BTW I use Win7 system :)

I know that I am late, but this happens when you do not unzip the file and run it directly from the zip folder. 

Unzip it and then run it. :)


pretty cool concept but sometimes just way too hard.. Will see when the full game comes out

Hi ,  fantastic concept and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.  Sadly we will have to wait until Summer 2018 to buy the full version,  if I understand correctly...  :(

I would like know if anyone can share with me how the editor works.  I think I finally found the 'secret' key on my German keyboard (it seems to be ^).  When I press it in-game I get a red cornered curser and can mess around by dragging and deleting stuff - but that's all I can do - I am clueless.

There are also 3 small white symbols^in the top right corner: a zero, a smiley and an arrow pointing right.  Can anyone offer a bit of assistance please?


Here're the keys used in the editor:
-/+: switch between levels (the zero in the corner indicates which level you're editing)

Tab: open and close the object list

^ (in your case): switch between editor and in-game

s: save level (I think the smiley indicates if there're unsaved changes in a level)

1/2: change layer (the only point of this is if you want to have several objects on top of each other)

arrow keys: adjusts the initial direction of the tile you're currently hovering on. The little arrow in the corner tells you the current direction of the tile you're hovering over.

It's all fairly confusing because I made the editor for my own use, but hopefully this helps! :)

So clever! Well done.


Amazing concept ! I can't wait to play the full game.

The level editor is such a great toy too. I spent all my evening making puzzles x-)

Congratulations on making this game, good luck for what's coming, and most of all : THANK YOU for this !


Thank you very much! Super glad to hear you had fun with the game & editor :) The full version is going to have a much more in-depth editor

I'll definitely buy the game when it comes out. It's so great that you're spending time on a new level editor.

Will it be possible to share the levels with the community ? And to download and play levels made by other gamers ?


I'll try to make that happen! The levels made by others will definitely be in easily shareable format but I'm not sure how much I can do to make them easily shareable. We'll see! :)

Should be able to add in either Steam Workshop or similar if you don't want to build your own share system.  Can't wait for to see what the community comes up with too!

I agree, great game and I can't wait for the full version.  Unfortunately I can't get the editor working and was wondering if you'd care to share some of yours?

Hotkeys for level editor are given on the game page.
Some of them don't seem to work, I just tried every touch on my keyboard until I figured out which does what.

I think TAB opens the menu where you can choose which tool you want to use (aka: which game element you want to clone somewhere in the level).

Such an awesome game! BABA IS WIN!

Also, it runs fine on my Mac via Wine. If you want a self-contained Mac version to add to your itch entry, let me know.

Thank you for that tidbit! Glad to hear the lua stuff doesn't break with Wine. :)

Deleted post

I'm working on a full version!

Amazing concept, really enjoyable with a great puzzle design! Great take on the "think outside of the box" type of puzzles

Thanks a lot! :)

chiconuclear, the concept is amazing, but i'm stuck in the 6th screen of the prototype. 

Dying to play the full version

Brilliant! I loved it. I'd get a full version for sure.

Thank you :) Working on it!

This looks so cool. Is there any way you can make a Mac version?

(1 edit)

I found a Windows machine to play this & loved every minute of it. :)

I really hope there's a way to make a Mac/Linux version of the final game!

Mac version is definitely doable, Linux I'm not as certain about. Hopefully!

Congrats on your release! You even made a Mac version!! <3

This is awesome. I just love this concept. I'm looking forward to the final version and wish luck to the creator of this fresh wonder :)

Thanks a lot!!

This is excellent and I had a great time playing it ^u^

Thanks :)

I love this game.

Thanks :D

The game lacks a mute button.

I'll try to make the audio less annoying for the full version! I had only bad earbuds available when making the sounds and that kinda affected things, haha :D

No I mean, it really lacks a mute button. Whatever the game, it should always have a way to disable all sounds so that it can be played while listening to something else.

Oh yeah, this version of the game doesn't really have settings of any kind. The full version will have a proper volume sliders for music & SFX.

What an excellent game. I like how many different ways there are to finish each level, it's very clever.

I also like the BEST word. Sure, it's not used in any of the puzzles, but sparkles are their own reward!

I just added another pointless visual word:

(1 edit)

Pointless? I don't think it's pointless. Looking great is a point.

Wow it is so awesome. Editor was under | or \ . Very good.

I'll add those letters to the description :) Thank you!

I can't get the menu or the editor to work. I think it's related to keyboard differences?


Unfortunately it seems to be that way :( The full version will have a proper level editor, though, I'm pretty sure!

Oh I sure hope it will, or can you fix the keys not working? I really want more of this game. :U

BTW, you might want to mention that you have to change your keyboard language to Dutch then hit ~ to access the level editor :D

Or alternatively, bind it to a key that's more universal (like F2).

(1 edit)

This doesn't work for me, I can't figure out how to get to the editor.

I'm stuck on level 12 ("ANNI IS BEST" in top left, "LOVE IS STOP" + "ANNI IS STOP" in lower right). Can someone give me a hint?

Tip: How did you solve level 9?

On L9 I could change what WALL IS, but I can't do that on L12. They're up against the side, so there's no way to change WALL IS STOP, FLAG IS WIN, or BABA IS YOU. All I have to work with are ICE, SLIP, and EMPTY -- and all I can make them IS is WALL, STOP, BABA, YOU, or each other. Another tip? Sorry that I'm dense.

(1 edit)

What the hell? Okay, so I just beat it without really realizing how. Somehow EMPTY IS ICE followed by ICE IS YOU lets me walk through walls? I don't understand why.

You don't walk through walls, you just control all ice on the screen.

this game is good ;D

GA    I    GO
ME   S   OD

This is one of the neatest things I've played in a long time.  I played it a couple days ago, I keep thinking about it, and I have been recommending it to people.

I'm very much looking forward to the full version! I'm excited at the prospect of new items and actions, as well as a proper level editor with structure for share-able levels. 

Thank you very much! I'm excited to get the full version done as well, hopefully it'll be as enjoyable!
