For Day 4 of the HighTechDad Gift-A-Day Giveaway, we are back to video games. But this one is a bit different than Bakugan (the Day 1 gift). Think raising a family and those wonderful first 3 years. I have gone through that 3 times so I know it well. Each child is different in real life…in this game, you get to make the choice yourself or have the game do it for you. The game is called My Baby: First Steps. Here is a bit more info:

Hdr_MyBaby-FirstStepsMy Baby First Steps follows last year’s blockbuster Nintendo DS hits My Baby Girl and My Baby Boy. It gives aspiring parents the exciting task of teaching and nurturing their baby as it grows to become a walking, talking toddler. Players will teach their baby how to recognize and name shapes and body parts, feed themselves, climb stairs and more. Just like the first game, the baby will need lots of interaction and affection and will need to be fed, changed, bathed and gently put to sleep at night.

My Baby First Steps features all new customization options. Players can determine their baby’s appearance and sex, or let the game surprise them. Taking trips to the mall allows players to buy new clothing and accessories for their baby and for their home!

My Baby First Steps is available now for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ for a suggested retail price of $29.99. It is rated E for everyone; for more information visit www.mybabyvillage.com.

Some more features as articulated by SouthPeak Games (developer) include:

  • Your baby looks more lifelike than ever with brand new 3D animations and reactions
  • Make sure that your baby has the latest trends with even more items; customize your furniture, clothes, and hair just to name a few…
  • With a new and improved AI your baby will react as if they were in the room with you
  • Innovative gameplay that is based on stylus, touch pad, voice recognition, and the microphone – not a compilation of mini-games
  • Interact with your baby whenever you want and experience real baby-like reactions
  • Watch your baby grow from both a physical and psychological point of view

So I’m giving out both DS and Wii versions for this giveaway. A couple of the gameplay screenshots from each platform:
