It's never too late for love!

Old souls of the world, this is your time to shine – and potentially get a little action in the romance department!

Introducing Later Daters, the hilarious and sentimental new dating sim from the creators of the award-winning LongStory. As the newest resident of Ye OLDE retirement community, you’ll meet a cast of sexy seniors who are flirty and thriving. It’s an adjustment as you settle in, but who knows: maybe these will turn out to be the best years of your life! It’s a story that is beautiful, charming, funny, and heartfelt as its characters confront their desires as well as their own mortality (which is an inevitability unless serious advances in cryogenics are made in the next few years.)

Why Later Daters?

Later Daters makes the bold claim that adventure, passion, and transformation are not experiences reserved for the young. The game challenges ageism and suggests growing old is the purest human experience - one that can teach us poignant lessons about our capacity for love.

  • Select your pet companion to accompany you on your journey

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 seems impossible. Even if you want to meet people, getting out there is daunting. But when your faithful pet escapes, you have no choice!

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 develop some special connections.

Three: 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?

Don't be a stranger!
