While it succeeds in being a happy, positive game, Dream Daddy's simulation doesn't go far enough.

At its core, this is a game that's funny and good-hearted, presenting a world where a single queer dad's ability to be a good father is never called into question. It's a pretty cool accomplishment for a silly game birthed from a meme.

I'm not sure if Dream Daddy is just a simple visual novel or a commentary on some social issue. Is it all a fever dream?

Greatly written and life-affirming dating simulator that gives away a lot of potential.

Heartwarming; that’s the word to describe Dream Daddy. It’s a feelgood game, from its tongue-in-cheek Dream Weaver-esque theme tune to its message of acceptance and generally being excellent to one another.

Dream Daddy is a sharp and humorous visual novel that unfortunately erases the notion of queerness from male-male relationships.
