Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is a game where you play as a Dad and your goal is to meet and romance other hot Dads.
Written by Vernon Shaw and Leighton Gray and developed by Game Grumps, pitches itself as “this year’s most anticipated Dad-based game.” Play as a dad and his daughter who move into a new neighborhood full of 7 dateable Dads. You’ll be able to create an avatar of the new single and looking father.
Vernon and Leighton strove to provide a fun-loving game but with heart and a message. “I know it all sounds like kind of a ridiculous idea, but the game is about so much more than just hot Dads. At its core is a story about what it means to care for someone else, and I think that’s really important to to anyone who might play this game.” Says Vernon. “I hope this game is as meaningful to everyone as it has become to us. What started off as a ridiculous little idea quickly became a way to tell a sincere story without the usual pitfalls of having to take ourselves seriously.” Leighton adds: “I grew up in a single-parent household and that was a big driving force for the narrative in this game. It can be such a lonely thing, but going through so much with that one parent brings you closer together and you can really see that in the player Dad’s relationship with their daughter.
The game boasts a bunch of mini-games as you try to play your way to your daddy’s heart. Set to be released on Steam on July 13 and retails for $14.99.
