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.

My girlfriend has been watching other people's videos of this for the past few weeks - for now she's using an older PC of mine (Core2Duo + 9800GTX, nothing fancy), running Xubuntu because - well, it came with a WinXP license, sure, but I'm not running and taking care of that. :p

Anyhow, she was super excited to see this get ported, and bought it as soon as she found out. Happy to report it seems to play flawlessly for her so far on that old machine - and yes, there are a couple hidden minigame portions that are 3D rendered, despite the game being mostly a 2D visual novel.

One reason this game's got a lot of press is because it's apparently a pet project of the Game Grumps, so if you know their type of humour, that's what you can expect here. From the bits and pieces I've seen looking over her shoulder, it genuinely does seem to be a sincere, light-hearted take. With lots of dad humour.

This really isn't the best place for political discussion, but there are clearly nutjobs on the left just like there are on the right.

I don't feel there's anything political about the fact there are nutjobs everywhere.

heidi.wengerI hear that neo-liberals think it's pretty natural to identify as a different gender or sexual orientation every other year, even week or so? Extreme ones now even demand their own toilets for whatever that identification might be inside head that time?

Literally not one single word of this paragraph is true. Liam, can we get an ignore button in here?

Elaborate please? Liberals have demanded individual toilets in USA for example, and it is in consideration in some states. Powerful stuff! Why would you want "an ignore button" ?

I don't believe you! You also imply to go for the middle! That is hate speech! Can't you see?
