Parenthood was made for the Global Game Jam under the theme: what home means to me. The idea was to create a game around being a parent through the ages. The game aims to provide the player with tasks in each age that could be solved and then continue this routine until the time was up. Art, models, and music were created to mirror each chosen year, such as the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000. "The most important people in most people’s lives are their parents. They devote their lives to loving their children and building a loving environment, but would you make a good parent? What about in a different era?"
