Join us this Valentine’s Day weekend to digitally explore love and dating with your trusty hosts Addie Baron and Mason Arrington, featuring special guest and dating sim enthusiast Ashlyn Sparrow, lab director of Game Changer Chicago! Dating can be/is tough. Luckily we can get in plenty of practice with a series of pugs in Hot Date by George Batchelor, rated “the best pug dating sim the world has ever seen” by Polygon. Next, we’ll take what we’ve learned from pugs to Dream Daddy, where the player takes the role of a customizable single dad in a town occupied by seven other (mostly hot) dads. Can we discover the secrets and mysteries of love? Do dating sims have the answers? Or are they just super fun? We hope you’ll help us explore these burning questions together!
