Video Game / Eggs For Bart

Go To


Heavily based on a Grumpcade joke (which also guest starred members of the Oney Plays group), Eggs For Bart is a Simpsons-themed freeware horror game for PC in three chapters. The first chapter was completed on July 29, 2018, and you play as Homer Simpson, who has been tasked with collecting 24 eggs hidden in the house for his son Bart.

However, there's a problem. Marge and Lisa also want eggs, and they will kill you for them, as "only eggs can sustain them" according to the game's and GameJolt pages. You can only carry half a dozen eggs each night, so you need to make four trips into the house, with each trip harder than the previous one. Meanwhile, each trip ends with a cutscene detailing a story involving a mysterious murder plot.

The second chapter followed later in the year, and now had Ned Flanders as the player character. The final chapter was completed in May 2019, and had Chief Wiggum in the lead role.


You can download it from or GameJolt.

I need you to go in and get some tropes for B a r t t t

  • Adaptational Villainy: Marge, Lisa, Maggie and Bart are psychopaths who will kill anyone who tries to take their eggs. Only Homer himself is unaffected. Even then, he ends becoming an enemy as well in Part Three.
  • Ambiguously Human: Marge, Lisa, Maggie and Bart seem to be more demons than humans.
  • A Winner Is You: Subverted — despite this clearly being a rushed Unity project, you get to see part of the story for every six eggs you collect.
  • Ax-Crazy: Everyone wants those eggs, and will kill you for them.
  • Back Stab: The fate of Barney Gumble and (seemingly) Homer in Chapter 1.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't try to steal eggs from Marge and Lisa.
    • Don't wake up Maggie.
    • Don't try and force your way past Bart when he appears.
  • But Thou Must!: You are forced to collect eggs despite the fact that your entire family is trying to kill you for it.
  • Chekhov's Gun:
    • Bart is in fact the mastermind behind the whole plot, sending you to collect eggs as an intentional Suicide Mission and murdering Barney Gumble in the Kwik-E-Mart.
    • Barney Gumble is revealed to be the real culprit behind Homer and Ned's deaths in chapter 2.
    • The reason you were supposed to collect eggs in the first place is to allow The Simpsons to Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence.
  • Creepy Child: Maggie, Lisa and Bart all count as this, the former two as a result of their poorly-made 3D model and red eyes.
  • Dark Parody: A horror game based on The Simpsons, which is a comedy. Also used lines from Grumpcade.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Marge and Lisa want to kill you simply for stealing eggs.
  • Don't Look at Me!: In the last level of Chapter 3, Barney's ghost will appear without warning. If you leave your light on (Barney will turn with you, so you can't look away), you die. Inverted with Homer; you have to leave your light on the target for enough time to make them leave.
  • Downer Ending:
  • Driven to Suicide: Chief Wiggum's fate at the end of chapter 3.
  • Eldritch Location: Where much of Chapter 3 takes place.
  • Everything Trying to Kill You: The Simpsons (excluding Homer until chapter 3) will try their hardest to put you six feet under.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Your goal is to collect eggs for Bart.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The dialog and jumpscare sounds from the various hazards of the map.
  • Jump Scare: Triggered when caught.
    Whoever killed you: I AM YOUR CHARACTER A A R R C C
  • Luck-Based Mission: Especially in the later missions.
  • The Maze: Most of Chapter 3 takes place in these, made harder by the fact the wireframe aesthetic of the areas means you can't see where the walls actually are. You are also continuously chased by Homer's disembodied spirit.
  • Mighty Glacier:
    • Marge moves slowly throughout the house. If she sees you, however, she'll pursue you at a faster speed.
      • This is averted in Chapter 2, as she'll always be running due to having a larger area to patrol.
    • Lisa moves at a similar speed to her mother, but doesn't have an "alert" mode, and thus is always slow. However, she always knows where you are, and completely ignores physics by walking through walls and floating to gradually creep up on you. This makes her very dangerous when you're trying to hide from Marge or waiting to get past Bart.
  • Nintendo Hard: The game gets VERY hard during the later missions.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: Bart just says "sorry" after you collect 12 eggs in Chapter 1.
  • One-Hit-Point Wonder: Doesn't matter who it is, the entire family will kill you instantly if they reach you.
  • Sensory Abuse: A staple of this game. Most of Chapter 3 is eye-going red wireframes a la the Virtual Boy.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The game is an obvious Simpsons parody.
    • It also happens to be based on a Grumpcade joke.
  • Something Completely Different
    • Chapter 2 has a new map and a new character to play as. Chapter 3 takes it further.
    • The third level of Chapter 3 is a driving section.
  • Stylistic Suck: The game's models are not very polished, especially the enemies.
  • Timed Mission: When Maggie starts crying, you have a limited time to get to her crib and calm her down. If you don't, you die.
    • The last level of Chapter 3 is one. You have to ward off three separate threats while not being able to move (aside from turning). After you survive long enough, an egg will spawn. Repeat until you have six.
  • Unwinnable by Design: During the last level of Chapter 3, Homer, Barney, and Maggie can all trigger at the same time. You can only satisfy the conditions for removing one threat at a time, so if this happens, you're doomed.
