Ratings and Reviews
This game is sorta like sims city. You build stuff and earn coins from the fruits of your labor. As for the reviewer that is worried about sexuality, there's no sexuality in this game other than creating a pride parade. 99.9% of children movies/tv/games have heteronormative characters. To me that's the greater sin, to grow up and never be able identify with LGBT characters on the screen. Since the topic of 2016 has moved toward gender identity, I'll reply by explaining that science has shown to be the more correct assumption is the child makes the assumption of gender identity at a very early age of 2 to 4. How we wear our hair, talk and walk. Studies of adults, even as old as late life, that have been forced to have a certain gender identity have shown they all felt wrongly gendered at an early age. Thanks Atari for making this, I'm off to buy the rest of the Atari games that I grew up on. One request, make Atari games for Apple TV.
Difficult to make progress & culturally insensitive :/
Not only does it take a loooooong time to fill the fun meter on buildings in this game, meaning you’re stuck with a town that’s about 75% flat gray buildings for days (how long I’ve been playing), I was also pretty put off by the role given to protestors.
It’s never made clear that the protestors are anti-LGBTQ or that there’s a valid reason for making them the “enemy.” They’re portrayed as little crowds of people with blank signs who players have to avoid when planning their parade routes. One page of the quest booklet shows a punching fist and “Love Wins” opposite the text “Protestors have reared their ugly heads in your fair city. It’s time to show them the true meaning of pride.” To me, this sounds a lot like the anti-protest rhetoric cishets and white cis gays love: stop politicizing pride, let uniformed cops march in the parade, just have fun, go buy some cheap alcohol, etc. All of this ignores that the first Pride was a riot, the Stonewall Riots, and that riots have always been an integral part of fighting for LGBTQ rights. Overall the game feels more like you’re planning some random city event’s parades than Pride.
Fun, but glitch ended the game for me
Update: The game lost all my data 3 times in a row today. Downgrading this from 3 stars down to 1 star. I wish this game would work, but it simply doesn't, and it sounds like Atari isn't going to bother fixing anything here.
I thought this game was decently fun, and I am still excited a mainstream publisher made an LGBT focused game. As other reviewers have pointed out, it would be great if this game had a little more depth to it, more diversity, and showed more of actual LGBT life. But as a bit of rainbow flavored escapism while a lot of anti-LGBT stuff is happening, I have really enjoyed improving a gray, sad place by throwing pride parades.
Unfortunately, the game is difficult to figure out at times. It took me awhile to figure out that starting a parade from the city magazine is different from starting a parade anywhere else. There wasn't any info available online about it, as far as I could find, and I quit. I decided to give it one more chance & figured it out.
Now I've hit another roadblock: I need to use an Eiffel Tower float in a parade, but I can't build one of those until I build a library. The game has started crashing even more lately, so my attempts to figure that out are constantly interrupted. This is quickly sapping my desire to play.
