Mission Statement

---------------------- ----------------------
The 2016 Republican primary was so full of petty drama that at times it felt like a high school soap opera. With this in mind, we decided to make it one. Grand Old Academy is a fictionalized, comedic retelling of the election in the style of a Japanese dating simulator. You play as Mori America, a Japanese transfer student, and you arrive just in time to watch the first round of the debate club championship. The championship is the most anticipated and important event of the school year. As you befriend seven of the top debaters (which include Donald, Jeb, and Ted), you realize there may be more to them than what they show on the stage… and that they’re all eligible bachelors.

During our successful Kickstarter campaign in November, we raised over $15,500 — $2,000 above our goal. We are currently in the process of building the full game, but if you're eager to Make America Date Again, download our demo. To get the latest updates, you can also sign up for our mailing list. And if you'd like to support the game, please visit our Patreon to contribute and help make Grand Old Academy even grander, older, and academier.

GOA's new music is fun. I played it in the privacy of my home and the Obama Administration later said they loved it.
