How to Get YOUR ‘Dream Daddy’ – Full Walkthrough for the “Daddiest” Game Ever

Dream Daddy is a dating simulator that took the gaming world by storm. This type of game style isn’t usually my forte – I hate dating IRL, why would I want to do it in-game? But I kept seeing people posting about how “amazing” it was and after seeing gorgeous fan art after gorgeous fan art – I caved. I’m so glad I did! This dating sim title has an eclectic group of characters, each drastically different from one another, incredibly hilarious dialogue, and a heart-warming relationship between father and daughter. No spoilers, but it also has one hell of a twist if you get the “bad ending” that will be released to the public at a later date. Regardless of which “daddy” you fancy, Dream Daddy has something to offer all players and to achieve your perfect ending, we put together this simple walkthrough to get be “daddiest” dad you can be. So let’s meet the potential lovaaahs:

Throughout the game, the player has the opportunity to go on three dates with their “Dream Daddy” and the objective is to obtain the highest score ranking possible, the “S” ranking. In order to achieve the perfect date, the player has to pull out their moviest moves ever and we’ve got just the thing to help out. Without giving any spoilers away regarding context, here are the dialogue options best suited to achieve that perfect score. Let’s start with the Bro to end all Bros: Craig (Guides go in order of Craig, Robert, Mat, Hugo, Damien, Brian, then Joseph).

Craig:

The first date is more of a feeler date for Craig, all dialogue options in the beginning give the same response so you can really just ask him questions in whatever order you feel comfortable with. Make sure to ask ALL of the questions though, that’s very important! From there, these are the choices that are most recommended:

  • The right person will come along eventually
  • I mean …

Second date (the choices that matter won’t start until the search begins!):

  • Go to the playground
  • Look for clues
    • Interrogate Joseph
      • That sounds a little suspect, Joseph
        • No (yes)
    • Try to calm River down
  • Move to another part of the park
  • Go to the field
    • Mat and Carmensita
      • Check out the squirrels
        • The Tree
          • Look for clues
            • Interrogate River
              • Good cop
  • Move to another part of the park
  • Go to the woods
    • Look for clues
      • Interrogate Robert
        • Bad Cop
          • Go deeper into the woods
            • Yes
  • Grimy Brunch
  • Gotta treat yourself

Final date:

  • Such a gentleman
  • There won’t be
  • Look at Craig’s butt
  • Let’s put on a show
  • Dunk him
  • I’ll race you to the top
  • Jump until he can’t jump anymore. For extra points, push for one more jump
  • Go overboard with compliments
  • Hell yeah, bro

Congrats, Craig is all yours to be romantic bros for all time! Amanda will be so pleased.

Robert:

Do NOT sleep with Robert when the prompt comes up if you decide in the beginning to go watch “The game”. It will give you two options to say no, do not go through with it. Doing so will lock out further options down the road to unlocking his romance achievement.

First date: 

  • “I’m just chillin” or “Just working on my motorcycle”  both work
  • Whiskey, straight up
  • Whiskey hasn’t failed me yet
  • You with the feds?
  • Could you get the next round?
  • You know it!
  • “I’m sorry” or “This one’s for you, Pappy
  • Of course
  • You betcha
  • Thanks for defending my honor

Second date:

  • Hoist that Rag, baby!
  • Say nothing
  • Play along
  • You’re lying
  • I’m glad you told me

Final date:

  • To you
  • He’d never convince the jury
  • 80’s reference
  • Go with something I know
  • Travelling grifter
  • Working a couple short cons
  • Daniel McSturgiss
  • Ecclesiastes 12:7
  • Paranormal Excursions of the Supernatural: Ice Road Ghost Truckers
  • You trying to poison me?
  • Yes
  • Push it
  • Tell him what he needs to hear

Prepare for feels.

Mat:

During my second playthrough romancing Mat, I elected not to go watch “the Game” and did not choose to meet Craig at the gym the following day in the beginning. In the process of testing to see if that matters or not, but my recommendation would be to follow suit.

First date:

  • Yes, of course I definitely know what I’m talking about
  • Tally ho, good sir
  • ASK AGAIN
  • ASK AGAIN!
  • >>> Mini-game <<<
  • The Youths will finally accept me
  • Fashion

Second date:

  • Father John Misto
  • Yeah. Why not?
  • Cite mutually assured destruction
  • Rip that golf fairway
  • Go with a classic
  • Never too late to get back into it

Final date:

  • I’ll do it!
  • Tomas Kalnoky
  • >>> Another mini-game, yup – still have to win it <<<

May your love be as smooth as all of his music references.

Hugo

Amanda’s teacher – an IRL no-no for dads but in-game? Everyone’s game. You’ll first meet him at school, none of the options really matter, though I wouldn’t recommend the “She’s fine” option when that dialogue pops up.

First date:

  • Blue nosed wigglyfish
  • Political fish trivial
  • Absolutely not
  • We can learn a great deal from mother ocean
  • We don’t have time for games here
  • >>> Mini-game <<<
  • I bribed a child
  • There is nothing on earn more satisfying than a good cheese board

Second date:

  • We’ll see what we can do to not hurt your feelings too bad
  • >>> Pick any team name <<<
  • Endor
  • Edgar Rice Burroughs
  • The Count of Monte Cristo
  • Their mother
  • Hulk Hogan
  • Poltergeist
  • Dogs
  • Zyzzyva
  • Otter
  • Ask again
  • Ask again
  • This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen

Final date:

  • What… did I just watch?
  • I’m glad I’m here with you
  • This is a sneaking mission
  • Quick, get inside my shirt
  • Give the crowd what they want
  • >>> Any wrestler name <<<
  • Go for it

At least Amanda has graduated? /Finger Guns

Damien

This gothic dad is first met at the Hot Topic parody store: Death, Goth, and Beyond. There really is not a lot of interaction before the BBQ to talk to him, only to witness him have a semi-melt down in the mall. There are no choices that really matter prior to the first date.

First date:

  • Look out the windows
  • Look at the butterflies
  • Pick up a book
  • Your home is really impressive
  • Love me some word jumbles
  • Thou Art the Tighest
  • Snapdragons
  • >>> Mini-game <<<
  • I really admire how you handled that

Second date:

Instead of a DadBook message, your dad will flip it up old school with a handwritten letter with the help of your darling daughter, Amanda:

  • I do hope that this letter finds you in good health
  • I must confess of my amateur control of the written word
  • You find me in good spirits, for I felt very much the same after our last encounter
  • While a strange turn of events, I found myself enamored of the situation at hand
  • It would bring me great pleasure to escort you to the cinema
  • Namaste

Final Date:

  • Cul-de-sac
  • Abandon all hope, ye who enter here
  • Coffee Spoon
  • Softball Field
  • Bayside
  • How many Goths does it take to screw in a lightbulb?/Knock knock!
  • Aquarium
  • Cul-de-sac
  • Give her the Right Said Banana Bread
  • What flavor pizza rolls are those?
  • Thou art welcome

Go forth into darkness and enjoy all the snuggles.

Brian:

Brian, the one-up king. His romance is arguably the toughest simply because it has so many mini-games – even a Pokemon style showdown occurs in the battle of the spud. Players will first meet Brian at the park where he and his daughter play with their adorable Corgi. Unlike the other dads, his first introduction (prior to the first date) requires some finesse. We’ve got you covered:

  • Next time I’ll catch it with my teeth
  • >>> Mini-game tips below <<<
  • During the Pokemon-esque showdown, you can choose to either Flee or throw down the gauntlet:
  • Item: Child Art
  • Item: Grade Card
  • Brag
  • Brag
  • Brag

First date:

  • I know when to hold ‘em
  • I fought valiantly and my only regret was being bested
  • Ask about his daughter
  • Ask about his dog
  • No one can out-fish me
  • This is a great oppor-tuna-ty for friendship!

Second date:

  • Maybe if I fall in you’ll save me
  • Put some bait on the hook
  • Tie a knot or something
  • Throw the stick towards the woods
  • Butt pats never fail

Final date:

  • >>> Mini-game <<<
  • SPEECH SPEECH SPEECH!
  • Be honest with yourself
  • >>> One more mini-game, geez <<<

Now go hug your bear of a partner and tell him you love him.

Joseph:

Ok … Joseph. Without giving anything away, there is the “good” ending and the “bad” ending for this blonde bombshell. The good news is that you really don’t have to worry about the bad ending because it’s not unlockable yet. If you’re curious to see what the hell happened, you can watch the video right here to see what old Joseph is up to. For this guide, I’m only going to put in what is accessible at this time. Later changes are likely. So without further adieu … to the good ending!

First date:

  • Chris
  • Egg them on
  • Go with something obscure
  • Spoon duel the Spider King
  • Oh yeah
  • We improvised
  • Remember that one time
  • They seem nice
  • Brownies fix everything

Second date:

  • Jesus is calming
  • That’s not how DJ’ing works
  • Sandra
  • Start with the Lawnmower
  • Running man
  • Cabbage patch
  • Moonwalk
  • Death drop
  • Watch out for blown flip flops

Final date:

  • Can do
  • I had lobster last week and I can’t wait to eat more of you
  • >>> Mini-game <<<
  • Wine!! Power pour
  • Do you like your mysteries… hot bodied
  • This view, though
  • What’s it like owning a yacht

Joseph is also the only dad that come the third and final date, players can’t score more than an “A” rank, which is below the normal “S” rank perfection. I believe this has to do with the alternate ending, but all will be revealed soon!

Overall, despite this game being a part of a genre that usually doesn’t interest me – I really found myself enjoying it and actually looking forward to more playthroughs. It’s an enjoyable narrative that can be taken at the player’s own pace with characters to appeal to a variety of personalities. The game itself can be found on Steam for $14.99.
