“We were talking about furry culture and Fursonas and all the different personalities that you could have, and I started thinking about how the group of people I understand, and do best with, are dads. Again, art school, so we all started drawing what we thought we’d look like as dads.And I was sure this must be its own subculture but I googled it and it didn’t exist.That’s when I knew I wanted to make a Dad Dating Sim.”And that’s exactly what has been brought into unholy existence.
Speaking with Joystiq, Rivers said he’d like to make a new horror title with dating-sim elements.
It started off as a joke he made on Twitter, and now it looks like this bizarre game may actually happen. “I made a joke on Twitter like a month ago,” Rivers said, “where I was like ‘Hey guys, if I did a horror game with a dating-sim element, would people play it? ’ Playing things like Mass Effect while finishing this game, playing Persona, that element of a really relationship-based game where you chase stuff like that, that’s kind of my new jam.” “It’s not a grinding game or anything like that, but I want to take a lot of what you do in those relationship games like Persona and offload some of that to people,” Rivers continued, “I want to basically take a game that makes you feel as cool as you do in Persona, as far as relationships, as connected.” I don’t know about you, but this sounds like a strange and wonderful idea, and possibly the beginning of a new subgenre.

If it's something that could potentially be fun, then I'm going to run with it. When I say "real games" I mean games requiring one to put effort into the design and development. It's a visual novel full of stock images and bad editing. Unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world so this will probably get through because "LOL SO RANDUM XD" I want this in my life, I need this in my life.
Why go from your previous work- which I readily admit is decent- to...this? Yesterday I prayed to Gabe for this Game to be successfull and I sacrificed 4 Big Mac™ Sandwiches.
This can lead to confusion, as visual novels are considered a subgenre of adventure games and are not technically included in the dating sim genre.
While the two genres often share a common visual presentation, dating sims are sometimes considered to be more statistically based than the "choose your own adventure" style of visual novels.“That idea often gets leveled against women, but I think everyone has some kind of issue with dads and that informs who you are -- whether you have a good relationship with your dad, or a bad relationship, or no relationship at all.And for each of those paths that your life has taken we have a reflection of it here.The technical definition of a dating simulation game, known as a romantic simulation game in Japan, can involve several technical elements such as a time limit, several statistics such as looks and charm which can be boosted through exercise, or an "attraction meter" which can increase or decrease depending on one's decisions.Some original-English dating sims include Sim Girls, In a typical dating sim, the player controls a male avatar surrounded by female characters.Or perhaps you want to mix some relationship elements into your mainstream video game. The first decision you make will unlock a major Event Flag for your story/game: If you're not creating a product with the intention of selling it, then know what you're getting into.
