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).

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 »
