Description

What do you get if you cross Dream Daddy with the Golden Girls? Introducing Later Daters, the hilarious and romantic new dating sim from Bloom Digital Media, makers of the award-winning LongStory. Later Daters is an affectionate exploration of what the elderly can teach us about love, loyalty, courage and friendship. Later Daters offers players a new way to think about time and what they want to make of their lives through interactive stories of love, loss, and belonging in a community of older people. The characters in Later Daters don't subscribe to stereotypes about the elderly: They are not straight, nor married. They are not (necessarily) grandparents, and certainly don't exist in some de-sexualized world of hemorrhoid cream, sensible shoes and daytime bingo. Later Daters makes the bold claim that sexiness, falling in love and feeling excited about your capacity for wild emotion and deep attraction is more than possible in the sunset of life. The game offers an existential antidote to ageism and the fear of death, suggesting that the limit of our lives is key to our capacity to love one another deeply and generously. Later Daters is exciting, sexy, hilarious and true. Maybe life really does begin at 60.

History
