Baby Steps

Publisher Devolver Digital and co-developers Gabe Cuzzillo, Maxi Boch, Bennett Foddy have announced Baby Steps, a literal walking simulator.

Baby Steps is launching for Windows PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 5 sometime in 2024.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

Play as Nate, an unemployed failson with nothing going for him, until one day he discovers a power he never knew he had… putting one foot in front of the other.

Explore a world shrouded in mist, one step at a time. Hike the serene mountains by placing each footstep yourself, in original physics-based gameplay from the minds behind Ape Out and Getting Over It. Take in the sights, fall in love with the local fauna, and try to find meaning in a wasted life.

Get ready to fall for Nate, in Baby Steps, a literal walking simulator.


  • Fully-simulated physics based walking.
  • A world that seems to come alive with a dynamic soundtrack built up out of 420 beats and vibes.
  • A lengthy trek up a mountain-sized mountain that you can explore at your own pace, or slower.
  • Fully dynamic onesie soilage system.
  • Non-collectible hats.
