A tragicomedy about heteronormativity ruining everything
– including polyamorous dating.
Unicorn Season was funded by the Finnish Cultural Foundation.
The game tells a story of three dates for three, is springled with magical (sur)realism and uses comedy to reflect serious topics.
This game uses humor as an approach to different ways polyamory can go wrong, especially heteronormativity and poor communication. Since the topics are both real and nasty the comedy in this game becomes quite tragic and black.
