An Intimate Weekend Showering With My Dad

/ Sep 8th, 2015 No Comments

Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad?

I make a lot of incredibly bad decisions in the games I play. Luckily, I make far more good decisions. One weekend I’ll be enjoying a classic like Super Mario Bros., while the next I’ll throw back to Borderlands 2. But this weekend, I played Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad?.

Father-Son Bonding

There’s plenty of games I should be playing; ones I have yet to beat, others I want to simply replay, and then the games I need to experience for articles. Instead of doing any of these other worthwhile endeavors, I spent about a dollar on Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. Available via Steam, this game is tests your reflexes and has you attempting to match boys with their respective fathers while in the shower. Based on the 8-bit setting, it would appear to be a public shower, presumably at a gym or other sports facility.

The three types of fathers and sons. No more, no less.

This game is incredibly awkward, but only at first. I’m sure my friends were happy to log into Steam in the late evening and see someone playing a game about showering with their father. Beyond that initial awkwardness, the game is an addictive time-killer. With a healthy variety of game modes — many of which need to be unlocked — the game has just enough flair to be worth repeated plays.

One game mode has players selecting a specific father-son combo to pair up constantly, while another randomly switches the kid, thus changing the pairing. As players move through the bathroom in an attempt to connect father and son, they too will begin to feel a connection, except not really.

The Deep Shower Epiphany

Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015 is a lot like an Emily Dickinson poem in that while people will continuously debate whether it’s about death, rebirth or the nature of life itself, there’s always the chance that it’s just about a butterfly. The game combines two of the most awkward parts of a child’s life, not recognizing their parent and going to a stranger, and seeing their parents naked (or a stranger naked as the case may be). It serves as commentary on society’s need to be ashamed with the naked human form as well as our own refusal to accept that our parents were at one point sexual beings, hence why they have genitals like our own. That being said, odds are it’s just a game made by some delightfully disturbed miscreants that know how addictive gameplay works.

Learn from my mistakes, do not run naked into the wrong naked father.

We all get caught up in trying to dig deeper and look for hidden meanings as well as perceived authorial intentions, but sometimes a game is just a game. Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad? comes out in a sea of indie games attempting to establish themselves and nearly succeeds without even trying. It is a game that relies on confusion and intrigue to pull players in and then uses addictive and fast-paced gameplay to keep them there. The deeper implications of the game’s narrative are left to the player’s perception. Gamers who want to be uncomfortable as well as entertained should look no further than a good, clean shower with dad.
