Published and developed by the popular group Game Grumps, and written by Vernon Shaw and Leighton Gray, the game hit computers on 20 July. The premise of the game is relatively simple: users create their very own dream daddy, who moves to a new town after being recently widowed with his year-old daughter Amanda. Almost immediately upon arriving, love is in the air. Whether with Robert, the resident bad boy dad, Hugo, the teacher dad, or five other single gay dads in the neighborhood, the choice is up to the player. Meet the dads individually below. Between dialogue choices, mini-games, and more, this relatively PG game, priding itself on its humor and earnestness, excited tens of thousands of fans with the promise of love.
‘Dream Daddy,’ the gayest game of the year, never uses the word “gay.” Let’s talk about that.
