Gameplay

Players are able to launch and manage a LGBT pride parade in a city of their choosing. They can customize parade floats by choosing size, components, mascots and decorations, as well as surrounding structures and side attractions, which then factor into a city happiness metric. Players can complete quests or challenge goals to unlock new parades, receive festival supplies or secure bonuses. Social elements of the game include avatar customization, chatting with friends and the ability to bring your parade to a friend's city, or to join in on a friend's parade. Atari does not plan to include the political aspects of LGBT pride parades. According to the company, "Pridefest will be a fun, social game first and foremost. We do not have a political component in the game."

Development

This is the first LGBT-themed video game from Atari, Inc. and their second major outreach to the LGBT gaming community after sponsoring and participating in GaymerX2. The company is putting together an advisory board that includes people from the LGBT gamer community to help avoid stereotypes and "to develop an engaging and fun game that is inclusive to all gamers".
