Playdate

Why do children have imaginary friends?

Sometimes imaginary friends are there to help kids work through issues they canít handle alone. Sometimes a lonely child is looking for company. Sometimes itís because their real friends have imaginary friends. And sometimes, maybe, theyíre just for fun.

In Playdate, a group of kids have been left with a teenage babysitter for an afternoon. There will be toys, craft time, pizza, and maybe some existential angst.

Playdate is a game about children dealing with difficult issues. It asks how we know what is real, and whether that even matters.

Content Warnings: Bullying, alcoholism, death or illness of family members, anaphylaxis, temper tantrums, existential angst, mid-game expectation shifts.

Arnold, Graham

Graham is a scurrilous individual prone to gross exaggeration and flights of fancy. He is too lazy to write his own bio. We do absolutely love him despite this

Ask him sometime about why heís never been in a hot tub with his lodge mates Nathan and Richard.

Lee, Sue
