Humble’s got a Very Positive thing going on right now

Dream Daddy

Not only does Humble currently have its second ‘Very Positive’ bundle going on right now, the site is now listing a separate sale, appropriately titled the ‘Very Positive Sale’. As with the bundle, the sale features a bunch of games all with ‘Very Positive’ or higher ratings on Steam right now, with discounts of up to 80%.

Before you ask, yes, that means you can get Dream Daddy for £9.89 / $13.49. Also featured are things like lovely retro Metroid-like Axiom Verge, perpetual Early Access feudal RPG Kenshi, the Homeworld Remastered Collection, Sniper Elite 4 and more.

We covered the strange adventure possible in Kenshi quite recently. In a year that gave us Divinity: Original Sin 2’s hungry elves and face-stealing undead, it’s astonishing to realise that Kenshi has weirder cannibalistic possibilities than Larian’s latest masterpiece.

Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talks Pyre,
Dream Daddy, and horror

Podcast hosts Brendan, Pip and Adam

What’s that unsettling white noise coming from the other room? Oh no, it’s the 10th episode of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. This week, the gang are talking about horror in games (but not necessarily “horror games”). Adam and Brendan are terrified by the depths of Subnautica, which doesn’t frighten Pip in the slightest.

But we also like playing non-scary things. Brendan has been competing in the purgatorial fantasy sport of Pyre, and Adam has been catching fish and watching tranquil sunsets in Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles. Meanwhile, Pip has been dating dads in the gay suburban utopia of Dream Daddy. There’s also reader questions, in which we return to the subject of horror, and experience the shrill scream of a truly terrifying beast…

Dream Daddy: There’s a new daddy in town…

Dream Daddy

Look. I’m good at romance/dating sims. I’m good at seeing the things it wants me to do in order to get the rewards of the heart (or the, uh, lower regions). I think a lot of people are because the games tend to hinge around you gaming the NPCs to reap some kind of reward. You take the character who likes animals on a date to the zoo. You wear a leather jacket to meet the rebel. You switch up your seduction (or entire personality) to tick person after person off your list. I’m a mercenary lovebot dispensing chocolates, offering an absolutely insincere shoulder to cry on and switching up my manipulations to suit my own transactional end game of collecting all the experiences.

So how the hell did Dream Daddy manage to get under my skin? Why do I now have a canon playthrough? How is it giving me warm and fuzzy feelings???? DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING. Read the rest of this entry »

Steam Charts: Fresh Meat

Children, gather round, for I have a tale to tell. A tale of wonder, intrigue, mystery and astonishment! Are we ready? Let me begin.

“Once upon a time there was a week when the Steam charts were slightly different to every other week since the dawn of time…” Read the rest of this entry »

Dad dating sim Dream Daddy is out now

Dream Daddy

THERE ARE HOT SINGLE DADS IN YOUR AREA JUST BEGGING FOR A DATE! No, seriously, there are: Dream Daddy [official site] is out now, and you’re a dad trying to date other hot dads.

It’s got a branching narrative, multiple endings, and a total of seven date-able dads. And with all those dad comes lots of dad jokes, naturally, which I’m always in favour of (“Are you ready? Hi ready, I’m Dad”), and punnage galore. And havarti (look it up).

Dream Daddy is currently a delayed daddy

Dream Daddy

I only found out about the dad dating sim, Dream Daddy [official site] a few weeks ago when a friend brought it to my attention as we paddled in the freezing sea and toasted a wedding. Look, that is just how we roll – do not question my lifestyle choices. ANYWAY. The point of Dream Daddy is that you are a dad romancing other hot dads. So far so “why haven’t we written about its existence on RPS yet?”

Well, the news of the game’s necessary release delay means that at least I now have an excuse to write about it so let’s make lemonade out of the late-running citrus delivery and have it on the site now. Also it’s a great fit for my Beyonce image template so scroll to the end for that. Read the rest of this entry »
