The problem we wanted to combat is how society forces stereotypes on people based on their biological sex. As babies, parents choose toys based on the sex. As teens, people are affected by society, social media, and our peers. As adults, people are affected by society's expectations on families and familial roles.
We decided to make a game that follows society's norms to reveal how absurd those stereotypes are. In addition, we decided to make it an infinite game to show how this cycle is never-ending if nothing changes. We also decided to make the boy able to collect more things to show how in society, men often are often at an advantage. For example, as adults, men are encouraged to be the main source of income for the family while women are expected to care for the household.
