Every day we approach death so we may as well enjoy the ride and make the most of it. Later dates
We released the game in installments over the course of 2020 and this is our first premium release to include Episodes 1-7 and the Cribbage mini-game. The game is full of sexy times, but the characters also have to ask themselves serious questions about mortality and grief.
You may be wondering why we decided to make a dating sim with seniors. We have been referred to as the “weird” dating sim several times and we draw comparisons Hatoful friend and the KFC dating simulation. The mainstream media often finds older people unsuitable for romantic narration, as older characters are often de-sexed; depicted as cute grandparents or wrinkled old wankers. We wanted to show older people as complicated and interesting people who fall in love and suffer heartbreak. All of this saying – yes, you can have sex in the game, hence the ESRB rating for maturity.
You may also be wondering who this game is for. We wanted to incorporate queer narratives into the game and with that mission in mind we learned that queer older people have a lot in common with millennials. We would argue that the game is worth pursuing for anyone who is worried about their future and dreams of retirement. Queer people sometimes do not experience the same milestones in life as marriage, having children and a home of their own in the same period of time as their colleagues – which makes queer seniors a treasure trove of fascinating life stories.
