Book Review: Dream Daddy


It’s called DREAM DADDY. What else could you ask for?

If you’re not part of the internet/YouTube subculture, Dream Daddy was an awesome game released a year or so ago that involved you creating a playing as a single dad moving into a new town with his teenage daughter. The game involves the player dad meeting other dads in the area and beginning friendships with them, ultimately trying to woo the dad of their choosing into going on a date with him. All the dads have specific and interesting backstories and personalities, and with seven or so different dads, the story can be played over and over. It’s fun. It has a lot of puns and YouTubers doing bit voices and I highly, highly enjoyed playing.

I mean it’s called DREAM DADDY. It’s great! I still can’t get the theme song out of my head.

The graphic novel version of the game is fantastic if you’ve played the game. If you haven’t, you’re likely to get a bit lost when figuring out who these dads are and what their personality is. I think you’ll still like it, but there’s not much here in terms of introduction to the characters, so a brief play-through is probably better. Or you can just search for the game on YouTube and you’ll find hundreds of videos of people playing through the game.

There’s several short issues in this book written and illustrated by different authors/artists. It gives a real variation to the book which was fun, but my favorite in terms of story and art style was definitely the one about Damien and Robert. Damien is the best dad and I will die to protect goth daddy.

Honestly this is all just really fun and cute and you get to read about cute dads being friends. It’s all good.
