Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator
Right of the bat, I have to say that Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is a game that really did take me by surprise. To say I have played a ton of visual novel and dating sim style games the last couple of years is a massive understatement. However, few have had as much heart and left as strong an impression on me as this one did right here.
Hey Dad, I Love Our New House
The overall “story” of Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is both sad and lovely. You create your own dad and it is up to you what kind of dad you want to be. You along with your daughter Amanda have just moved into a new cul-de-sac after your partner has died. So, while that is rather dark and sad, the relationship between you and Amanda more than makes up for it.
In this place where you live are plenty of other single dads and you decide that getting back out there and going on dates is the way to move forward. The really nice thing about this game is that while finding love might seem like your ultimate goal. It really is not; it is making sure that your daughter knows she is loved and is happy and that is an awesome message for a game like this to have.
You Know What Happens On The Third Date?
You decide which of the other dads you want to go on a date with and that starts your relationship. Overall, each dad will have three dates and the third one is basically the “end” where you see if they are right for you.
These dates are a lot of fun and can have some funny situations happen that distract you from the date. What I really liked was how each of the dads was different, as were their kids, but just like you, they all want what is best for their kids. Having an openly gay kind of game like this is great and I feel that the game handles it all very tastefully. I am sure most people who play this will be so charmed by the clever writing and interesting characters that they will play through it many times and take out all of the dads.
While I have played some very erotic games over the years, I would not class Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator as one of them. Yes, finding love is part of the game, but you do not have to worry about graphic sex scenes here. This is more about an emotional relationship than purely a physical one and I really do think in a genre such as this that is a breath of fresh air.
I was not expecting much from Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, but I had a great time with this game. It is so nice to see such a loving kind of message in a visual novel style game. I liked the relationship between the dad and Amanda, but I also thought that most of the other dads had fantastic qualities too. So much so that I did end up dating them all!
