Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is now on Linux

Posted by , / 16520 views

Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator [Steam], a game about a Dad looking to date another Dad is now on Linux.

Announced on Ethan Lee's Patreon, this is the first Unity title to be ported by Mr Lee, who usually focuses on porting XNA games using his FNA project.

About the game:

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. You and your daughter have just moved into the sleepy seaside town of Maple Bay only to discover that everyone in your neighborhood is a single, dateable Dad! Will you go out with Teacher Dad? Goth Dad? Bad Dad? Or any of the other cool Dads in this game? With minigames, sidequests, and a variety of paths and endings, Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator is this year's most anticipated Dad-based game.

I think my favourite listed feature is this "So many Dad puns. Like, to the point where it made us all uncomfortable" — hah!

It released for Windows in July, so it hasn't actually been out all that long. Since release, it seems to have gained rather positive reviews.

It's a dating simulator so it's not my type of thing, but hopefully some of you might appreciate this now being on Linux.

ajgpI cant quite work out if this is therefore a genuine attempt at satire of the genre.
This is probably a part-serious/part-satire kind of game. There are more of them than you'd think for English-language Sims or Visual Novels.

And yeah it's a big, fat fetish. 2D characters can't husbando/waifu themselves, y'know! ^_-

Haha, not going to judge people Just not my thing, as for the games I have never looked into the genre to know much more than the odd thing that crops up in my feeds.

zimplex1Absolute degeneracy.

Or just the common mindset of liberals? Yet they won't tolerate you if you're conservative enough to disagree with them

I read a review of it the other day out of curiousity. They said it was very sincere and they were surprised by how heartfelt the game was. I think they were expecting something more along the lines of that bird dating sim from a while back, but instead found it to be sweet and innocent.

This is how you know that Linux gaming has arrived... When the genre, odd, off-beat, WTF games arrive. I remember the Windows freeware scene and shareware gaming scene of the late 80's and early 90's and it was filled with titles like this.

Tolerating intolerance is a different category from tolerating groups such as (other races, other genders, other sexual orientations). Cases for or against the two of them need to be made separately. This should be obvious to conservatives, since they typically don't tolerate (various groups of people) but do tolerate intolerance. In fact, it's actually quite difficult to hold the same stance on the two cases--how, for instance, would one both be intolerant of other races and intolerant of intolerance?

So the "liberals are so inconsistent/hypocritical because they tolerate eg gays but don't tolerate us" argument is basically facetious, a cute "zinger" meant to annoy the unwary but with nothing behind it. It's like saying that because you tolerate sushi, to be consistent you have to also tolerate swearing.

Note that this comment says nothing about the relative merits of "liberalism" or "conservatism" in themselves, I'm just pointing out the illogic of a particular argument I see too often.
