The ‘dadification’ of games is an interesting phenomenon. As a generation of primarily male game developers settle down and start families, it’s hard not to observe a growing trend of protective father figures cropping up as game protagonists, some better at it than others.
Gothic fantasy parenting/management sim My Lovely Daughter seems a fitting antidote to all of that. An alchemist attempts to revive his lost daughter through forbidden arts, and reassembling her lost soul will require the creation, nurture and ritual murder of a procession of adoring homunculi.
So, no ‘World’s Best Dad’ mug for him, then.
