After Amanda gives you a hand filling out your profile, you’re free to message the dads you want to hang out with.The first we encountered was a Pokémon pastiche as you battle another dad in a game of braggery and daughter-praising one-upmanship.Others have you dodging Youths at a concert while attempting to navigate through a crowd or jogging through a Wuhu Island-esque digital environment on a treadmill at the gym.Overall, they typify the careful balance the writers strike in Dream Daddy – tapping into the stereotypes and puns of Fatherdom, but also providing an encouraging, life-affirming outlook which permeates the whole experience.Despite the labels, we’re all humans trying to get by the best we can and, as Dad Tip #85 reminds us, Heartwarming; that’s the word to describe Dream Daddy.
