"You’ll juggle trying to bang out all your neighbors while being a reasonably good father to your ethnically ambiguous daughter." ~ Honest Game Trailers - Dream Daddy
In a genre dominated by cat girls, pigeons and anime ladies that are actually tanks, discover yet another game you never knew you wanted that finally caters to a demographic criminally under-served by video games: gay dads!
Explore the copacetic Cul de sacs of Maple Bay. In an idyllic suburb packed to the brim with dads that are down to f***. Where you'll juggle trying to bang out all your neighbors while being a reasonably good father to your ethnically ambiguous daughter. All through the medium of minigames and dialogue options. Until you finally meet the daddy of your dreams and discover the real game: obsessively starting a date over because you picked the wrong line and ended up with a 'B'?! Aw, come on Hugo! I was being sarcastic! I thought you were cool, bro!
Experience the rare video game developed by a YouTube channel, as Game Grumps flexes their social media muscle to rocket a game about dating gay dads up the Steam charts way farther than it ever would have on its own. Unlocking thousands of unsuspecting consumers hidden thirst for Bara. Then realize that Dream Daddy is actually more chaste than a convent! And pretty much all the good stuff happens off-screen. Making it probably the gayest game for straight people ever made. Look, I'm not saying I wanted to see a dick, but I kind of wanted to see a dick...
Appreciate the elegant backgrounds and character art of Dream Daddy. As they breathe life into the game's diverse cross-section of fathers. Then have the effect immediately spoiled anytime your character comes on-screen. Because instead of creating a normal-looking human you picked a droopy ass Goku of wearing a crop top like an asshole.
Traipse through the thousands of text boxes that make up Dream Daddy. As you treat yourself to the kind of fun, flirty dialog that no one playing this game has in real life. Featuring tons of references that will have you saying 'I also know that thing,' and plenty of sexual undertones to give you that gay dad boner you crave. Until you realize the real reason they made a game starring mostly dads: to make 1 billion dad jokes!
Blast through Dream Daddy's many adorable minigames that transform dates from just trying to say the thing your dad-crush wants to hear like a psychopath, to classic high-score whoring! As you fix statues, mosh pits, throw money in a child face, battle children like Pokemon, and have casual sex with a shady-looking dude you just met? The mini-game there is not getting syphilis!
So get ready to get paternal with Dream Daddy today. Because just underneath that veneer of father lust, lies a solid dating sim with a heartwarming story, that's fun for the whole family! Except for the part where you try to bang that married guy... Maybe skip that bit...

Daddy Gay Care
Sound off in the comments and let us know which video game dads you'd like to have sex with! For me, it's between Barret from FF7 and Deckard Cain.
Honest Game Trailers - Dream Daddy has a 96.7% approval rating from YouTube viewers. Marissa Martinelli of Slate observed Dream Daddy is "not a perfect game, for reasons the Honest Trailer lays out: Choosing the wrong dialogue option can ruin a date, the dad jokes are brutal, and if you were expecting to get down and dirty with the daddies, you should know that things stay pretty PG, making it 'the gayest game for straight people ever made.'" She observed, "if these critiques seem tame by the standards of the usual Honest Trailers, chalk that up to Dream Daddy being a genuinely fun experience and, against all odds, 'a solid dating sim with a heartwarming story that’s fun for the whole family.'”
