|Overview:||'Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator', was this summer's most successful Dad Dating Simulator. It was also critically praised for providing players with inclusive representation that is not often found in video games. In this session, 'Dream Daddy' game director Tyler Hutchison will discuss the initial goals of the game, and how it managed to become something that made a whole lot of people very happy. This talk will examine how certain options were included and look at the choices and development hours that were required to include them. With a little love and potentially a small investment of time you too could make your game inclusive and give players more representation in their character choices.|
