COME TO DADDY - Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator - Part 1

Showing 1 - 15 of 20 comments. Personally, no. With the caveat that I'm a queer woman and it was definitely the dad-dating-dads gimmick that got my attention, there's a lot in here that I found heartwarming and funny, and also some things that made me think on a level that I didn't expect based on the promotional stuff I saw.

Well, there's also the dad aspect. You have a teenage daughter and your relationship is kinda sweet. I got it because I wanted to date hot fit guys old enough to be fathers. They actually are fathers? Well, ok. Just dating though. Of course not, this game is genuinely funny, and there's a lot more to it than just dating or whatever.

The game has lots of dad jokes, relationship with your daughter, dad mini-games And hanging out with different dads is pretty cool even if you're not very interested in a romance aspect of the game.

‘Dream Daddy’ is a surprisingly earnest dating simulator where you can date gay dads

You can just learn their stories, have a good time, that sort of thing. This mayyyy be an unpopular opinion but I enjoyed watching my daughter grow? More than anything in this game.

I got to know what makes our relationship stable and I kinda got to learn about what it feels like to be a parent. Now I understand why my parents were so worried when I didn't come home past my curfew. It depends - it's mostly based around romancing other dads, so if you're not into dating guys it might not be for you.

But, like others have said, there are other aspects to it like the relationship with your daughter, the dad jokes, etc.

However, I'm happy to report that after playing "Dream Daddy" for a couple of hours, my fears were mostly unfounded. If the dating simulator genre is a totally foreign concept, here's how it works: They're essentially video game versions of those choose-your-own-adventure books. In "Dream Daddy," you design your own character — which, notably, include " binder " body options for trans characters — and help shape their story with the decisions you make. If you're having a conversation with another character, you'll sometimes have to choose between one of several responses.

Sometimes, these responses will affect another character's perception of you, which is indicated by an explosion of hearts good or a murky, black ink cloud bad. Other times, these options simply alter the way a conversation unfolds, but there isn't a tangible, numbers-based outcome. Ultimately, your goal is to pursue one — or several, if you're feeling frisky — romances with another character.

But if you choose the wrong responses in conversation, they might not return your affection.

Kinda like real life, really. The one between your character and his daughter, Amanda.

Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator - Wikipedia

The whole conceit of the story is that you're a single dad who's moving to a new neighborhood with Amanda — and, in the process of getting to know the new digs, meet a bunch of hot dads. It's implied that you're downsizing because your character's spouse died in the somewhat recent past. Also, Amanda is in her senior year of high school and will be going off to college soon. Amanda is the main vector by which the story moves forward, and it works surprisingly well. She's the one pushing you to get to know the people in your new neighborhood — spoiler alert: They're all dads — and she's a nice, familiar face that helps ground everything in between all the flirtation.

In the opening minutes of the game, I was already getting choked up over the pair's conversation about my character's late husband, which is not what I was expecting out of a game called "Dream Daddy. I've also been surprised at how invested I am in her own narrative about troubles in school.
