The Steam Greenlight process for this game is now live – in time for Father’s Day
The platformer from publisher Excalibur Games has a truly unique game mechanic and brings a new meaning to parenting. The highly anticipated game is from indie developers Sundae Month – Excalibur’s latest signing. Sundae Month have published free to play games on their own website in recent years and are ready to take the step into the world of paid-for publishing. It is expected that following considerable interest in this title that the Greenlight process will be lit in a couple of weeks and then the product will progress smoothly into the Early Access programme in late September.
The storyline of this action-adventure platformer (with some RPG elements) follows the objective of raising your child whilst on a journey to the legendary Dad Island. The process of child-rearing in Dad Quest uses your child as an effective weapon who, when being tossed through the air, can defeat enemy “Bad Dads” and collect treasures along the way to improve their development.
The combat system of throwing the child through the air marks the game mechanic in Dad Quest as unique. The more the child is airborne the happier he is! This combat system is under constant development and we encourage you to keep posted to the webpage where you can see further updates.
