Love never gets old

Welcome to the Oceanview Living Domicile for the elderly!

As the newest resident of ye OLDE retirement community you’ll meet and befriend a host of intriguing seniors who all have their own unique philosophies on life and love to share.

There’s Blair King the crabby card sharp with a mysterious past, Crystal Meyer the charming small town social butterfly, Mariana Lopez the injury prone yoga instructor, Albert Lewis the tongue-tied ornithologist, and Jax Argo the has-been Canadian rock star, all vying for your attention and affection among many other charming residents. Sure, it’s an adjustment, being 80 years old and back in a communal living situation, but who knows, maybe these will turn out to be the best years of your life!

Later Daters is an affectionate exploration of what the elderly can teach us about love, loyalty, courage and friendship, we’ve already fallen in love with the cast of ye OLDE and we think you will too.

Why Later Daters?

We live in a culture that seems to think once you are over the age of 40 life is boring and romance is dead.

We don't believe it.

Through a deeply romantic and sexy interactive romance Later Daters offers players new way to think about time and what they want to make of their lives. 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.

Season One: Episode Synopsis

One: Welcome to Ye OLDE New Home


Moving into Ye OLDE retirement community is a huge change -- it’s full of strangers, the walls are thin, and privacy nigh impossible. Even if you want to meet people, getting out there is daunting. But when your faithful pet escapes, you have no choice! With your new neighbour Crystal, you chase your pet throughout the building and discover Ye OLDE’s residents are ready and willing to help you find your lost pet and welcome you to your new home. But are you ready to share your life with virtual strangers?

Two: The Social Club Shuffle


On your second day at Ye OLDE, it’s time to join a social club! If clubs aren’t your thing and you refuse to join, you’ll discover how hard it is to get alone time at Ye OLDE. And if social clubs do interest you, you’ll have a chance to get to know some special someones.

During all this socializing, other residents notice Crystal’s strange behaviour and her constantly buzzing phone. Soon the gossip is flying! Can you find out what’s going on before someone gets hurt? Or will you join the ranks of Ye OLDE’s notorious rumourmongers?

Three: Movie Night!


After what went down the day before, you just want to hide in your apartment, but that’s not the way they do things here at Ye OLDE. Once you go through the “meditation mediation” to resolve the conflict, the residents’ focus happily switches to Movie Night. Tonight’s film is a sci-fi classic starring Ye OLDE’s resident rockstar, Jax Argo! But who you’re going to the movie with turns out to be a bigger issue than you thought. The rules of dating are different in your golden years. Are you ready for the dating scene at Ye OLDE?
