But when I see certain things in the game -- this idea of gay dads being these sort of paper dolls you can play with -- I'm torn between being annoyed and just being like 'well, that's the genre! I will say that this game does seem way more about men being attracted to and dating men than other visual novels about gay men that I've played.
Even when I got the bad ending for Mat, I still had my daughter Amanda, who assured me that even if I wanted something more, friendship is still important, and she loved me very much.
If we're being really real, I liked spending time with Amanda more than going on the dates. I want her to succeed and be happy ;___; Riley: Yeah, the dad-iness of it is interesting.
Gita: I'm not sure how integrated being a dad is into the dating here. Sometimes I wondered what my dad did for a living because, well, it never came up!
He apparently lives at the beck and call of his daughter and can chill with his new buddies any time.
I've only gotten through the part with the barbecue, which I think is setting up all the dads.
Gita: Yeah, I got two endings for Mat, the barista dad. I'm intrigued by Joseph, the youth pastor, because I'm curious to see how the game handles religion.
Sometimes dating sims about gay men come off as not really for gay men or about their experiences.
I was worried that the joke-y nature of the title meant that the game wouldn't be serious about the issues presented here.
However, when you get to meet your new dad friends, you have to grapple with their children. And all the fluffy dating stuff happens as you're dealing with the fact that your daughter is going through something that she won't tell you about.
