Dad Quest Ready to Literally Play Catch with the Children on February 23rd

Back in October, child-projectile sim Dad Quest jumped onto Early Access. Now the title is ready for a full release on Steam coming February 23rd. And to celebrate the launching of children, developer Sundae Month has put together a launch trailer for our viewing pleasure.

For those unfamiliar, Dad Quest features a dad who must care for his little boy or girl. To do this, he will use them like a weapon, give them toys to boost their stats, upgrade them via an RPG mechanic, and figure out the secret of Dad Island.

Other interesting features include:

  • Two playable “Dads,” one masculine and one feminine
  • Collect “Dadges” from legendary Dad Bosses to unlock new Dad movement abilities and ensure your place on Dad Island
  • Discover the “Bad Dads” of legend and teach your Child the importance of good values
  • Procedurally varied levels for hours of fun gameplay and replayability

The ‘comedic action-adventure platformer’ currently only plans to release on PC. The game will cost $7.99 USD and for the first week, will be discounted 25%. Here’s hoping that the game hits all the right marks for humor and fun gameplay. Also maybe one day dear old Dad will find himself on consoles as well.

The launch(ing) trailer is available below:
