Date A Dad!


By now most of you have heard of the Game Grumps.
By now most of you have also heard of their awesome dating sim “Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator”. The game is finally out and people are rushing to create what the game calls a ‘Dadsona’. Think that’s a bad joke? Not Dream Daddy! This game is filled to the brim with puns and dad jokes no matter which of the seven dreamy dads you decide to pursue.

Each beautiful dad has their own likes and dislikes meaning that what works for one dad won’t work on them all. Often times I found myself being a good match for a daddy I wasn’t particularly aiming for, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The game is surprisingly serious much to the relief of many dating simulator genre fans. The fear that a “parody dating sim” getting this much attention could have meant bad news for the genre but the Game Grumps and their team did a fantastic job staying true to what makes a dating sim fun yet simply changing the target audience.

Dream Daddy features a variety of gorgeous dads to romance. From the “Fitness Dad” to the “Rival Dad” to the “Goth Dad”, there is certainly a dream dad out there to suit your tastes. Your dream daddy is waiting!

It can be hard to get people to pay attention.
Especially when it comes to real world issues like sex trafficking, violence, and rape. Photographer Shannon Dermody came up with a photography project to help increase awareness of these serious world issues with the help of a piece of pop culture super stars: Disney Princesses. Check it out below and don’t forget to see more of her work HERE and HERE too!

Windows to the Soul

It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul.
If so, then some animated characters might have to worry about their soul escaping their bodies through their eyes! Artist thenamelessdoll saw this as a chance to practice her  “manipulation/anatomy skills” and the results are delightful!
