Childhood Naivety and Naked Dolls Collide in Flash Game “How Do You Do It?”
How Do You Do It?, a free web-based independent game, is simultaneously hilarious and sad, capturing the childish confusion about naked dolls and grown-up kissing. The game is short but affecting, blending a coming-of-age narrative with a goofy score metric of how many times you maybe “did the sex.” Definitely check it out but, like we warned about the Twilight Kissing game, maybe lock your door first.
How Do You Do It? was made as part of Global Game Jam 2014 by Emmett Butler, Nina Freeman, Jonathan Kittaka, and Deckman Coss. Global Game Jams typically highlight creative, experimental projects, and How Do You Do It? is no exception. Almost the same team—although with art by Winnie Song this time —-designed and developed LadyLike, a game with similar themes of childhood, coming-of-age, and relationships to mothers; and My House, My Rules, a game about sneaking tasty snacks past a vigilant mother.
