Expect to pay: £11 / Developer: Game Grumps Publisher: Game Grumps Reviewed on: Windows 10, Intel Core i5 7400 3.0GHz, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 6GB GTX 1060Multiplayer: No Link: Steam Visual novels and dating simulators are strange beasts, and the intersection of those genres with comedy often results in parody.Dream Daddy sounds exactly like that—like it’s going to riff off and satire both the simplification of relationships down to dialogue options and usage of queer relationships in the genre.Daddy is typically very protective of his girl as well, ranging from Twerp Sweating potential suitors to going full Papa Wolf on men who wrong her.If the family consists of a girl, a boy, a mother and a father, the girl will most likely be Daddy's Girl and the boy will be a Momma's Boy, causing conflict in the entire family.
How he goes about that is up to you—you can be stern, relaxed, a mix of the two, but the aim is always to do what’s best.
The core message of open love between family, friends, and partners is effective, but the game avoids its sex scenes and the minefield of finding other queer folk in a predominantly heterosexual society. Dream Daddy is a kind game with funny writing and uplifting themes, but neglects the greater issues it alludes to.
Despite that, what is there is great—the characters are diverse, well designed, and smartly written.
Due to their close contact to the male parent, Daddys' Girls can sometimes acquire boyish traits and interests at odds with expected female personality types like One of the Boys.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, she might be especially girly like his sweet little princess.
