About

Through Hacking Health, a global event series that aims to transform healthcare through collaboration between healthcare professionals and technology creators, Miriam Verberg developed LongStory.  The dating simulator used to explore issues like healthy relationships and consent was originally conceptualized as an educational tool, but it soon found a place as a commercial product and Bloom Digital Media was born. The dating sim was embraced by the LGBTQ community for allowing users to play as any gender, use any pronouns, and fall in love with whomever they wanted. Bloom Digital Media’s next release, LaterDaters, is also a narrative-based dating simulator, this time focused on seniors.

Projects

Launched in 2014, LongStory provides a safe space for players to explore different relationships through the privacy of their phone. In the episodic dating sim, the player controls the plot and romantic outcomes through conversations and decisions throughout the game. In addition to finding love, the player will be asked if they want to solve the mystery at Weasel Heights middle school. In 2016 LongStory won the 12th International Mobile Gaming Awards 2016 Jury’s Honorable Mention.

LongStory is currently available for iOS and Android, PC, and Nintendo Switch

Following Bloom’s previous dating sim success, LaterDaters proves it’s never too late to find love. As the new resident of Ye Olde retirement home, players meet a cast of characters that they can explore relationships with. The game–which is set to launch spring 2020–challenges ageism and teaches poignant lessons about our capacity for love.

LaterDaters will be available on PC and Nintendo Switch.
