DREAM DADDY: A Dad Dating Simulator

Posted in Commentary with tags on June 18, 2017 by itnerd

The role of a single father is one that is seldom discussed in pop culture, let alone the dating struggles of a Dad whose life is devoted to their child. Upcoming video game DREAM DADDY: A DAD DATING SIMULATOR (DDaDDS) strives to create a dialogue about fatherhood, romance, and just what it means to care for someone. Created by Vernon Shaw (of Game Grumps and Hot Pepper Gaming fame) writer/illustrator Leighton Gray, and the Game Grumps, DDaDDS follows the dating journey of a customizable single father as their daughter prepares to go off to college. With a variety of fellow available (and not so available!) dads to choose from for romantic perusals, DDaDDS tackles the challenges of dating as a single dad with humor and a genuine, heartwarming message weaved throughout the entirety of the game.

DREAM DADDY: A DAD DATING SIMULATOR releases on July 13th via Steam. Here’s a look at the trailer:

UPDATE: Here’s a Canadian connection. Canadian Pop Punk band “PUP” will have a featured track and cameo in the upcoming video game “Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator”. The song – “DVP” – will play while you are on a date with one of the dad love interests in the game. PUP also makes an appearance in the game in more than just music – they have also been illustrated into the game itself.
