The first dad dating simulator has been delayed. Game Grumps’ Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator was supposed to launch July 13, 2017. However, the project has been delayed and a new release date has yet to be announced. Technical issues have appeared to halt the release.
An update explaining the Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator delay was offered on Twitter. Vernon Shaw, one of the writers, offered the following statement.
“Hey everyone, Vernon here.
Today was supposed to be the release day of Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating SImulator.We had been working under crunch conditions for the past three weeks, and going into today we all felt confident that we could release a game to you.
As it went later into the day, it became more apparent with more late-game bug discoveries that this wasn’t yet the version of the game we wanted to release. I checked in with all of the developers on the project with us, and while they were working as hard as they could, it was obvious that the last three weeks of sleep deprivation were taking their toll.
We all sat down and talked to talk it through, ultimately deciding that we can’t release the game tonight. We want to put out the good game that you all deserve, but to do that it’s going to take a little more time. The plan right now is that we’re all gonna go home, get 12 hours of much-needed sleep, and then come back to you tomorrow with a new release date.
I want to personally apologize to all of you who’ve been waiting patiently for this game. I’m sorry for being silent while we were trying to figure out what to do. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but in the end I think it will mean that you’ll receive a game that you love as much as we do.
Please feel free to reach out to me personally on Twitter (@VernonShaw) if you have any questions.
