"Often she felt as though she had been picked up and turned about like a kaleidoscope, that all her complacent assumptions had been shaken up and reassembled in a different order." (Judith Lennox)

Play Date

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 Play Date, 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.

Play Date 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.
