- The Project -

The 'Daddy Issues' project is a passion of mine and something I am developing in my own free time. It is my first visual novel which I started with no previous experience or knowledge in the subject, other than what I think makes a great story. With more time and effort spent on the project, the bigger and better it should become in terms of content amount, image quality and technical advances. To have people like yourself, taking the time to read this, is a huge deal for me and means a lot, so firstly, I just want to thank you for that. Regardless of whether you are able to contribute or not through my Patreon page, your appreciation of my work is humbling and greatly appreciated!

- The Story -

As a visual novel, 'Daddy Issues' can be described as a story of a young man's sexual adventures as he explores the mental minefield of gay relationships in the modern world. The story revolves as much around the difficulties of relationships and general adult life as well as the thing that drives most young red-blooded males... sex.

The ups and downs of life are part of what makes this adult visual novel unique and hopefully more engaging and realistic than most. The story starts with the upbeat British protagonist, Jake, as he relocates to America and moves in with his dad's old friend, Nate, and Nate's introvert son, Caleb. In Jake's mind, this is the perfect time to reinvent himself and seek out wild and exciting thrills. However, as with most things in life, things never usually go quite as planned.

If you have ever struggled with your identity, your sexuality, your contentment, your masculinity, your relationship... then there will be something in this story that you will be able to identify with.

- The Rewards -

'Daddy Issues' will be released in chapters. Once a new chapter is complete, it will be added to the previous chapter(s), filling out the main body of the builds which are released. Every build (or version) that is released, will always be free and linked here on the thread as well as other places dotted around internetland. With your contributions, however, you will not only be helping to speed up the process of each free chapter release, but you will also receive special rewards as a thank you for your amazing support which you can select based on what you feel financially comfortable with.

All feedback is welcome and encouraged as it helps guide my ability as a creator and may even influence the course of the story!

Hi Okalix. I played the game and have some thoughts about it. You can take it or leave.

The strongest point of the game for me is the 3D artwork. You can tell by looking at the characters faces that a ridiculous a mount of time was put into them. I also enjoyed the environments. I thought that they had a lot of character to them. One look at them and I think "Oh wow, Nate's loaded".

In a paradoxical way I found the game to be both too short and too meandering. The game ended too soon, still in the stage of introducing its major characters, and I felt like the plot didn’t really go anywhere. After playing the game I don't fell like I got what it was about, not story-wise but in the overall appeal of it. Does that make sense?

Biggest issue for me was the lack of player choice. The player doesn't really do anything in this version of the game. Sure there are two optional conversations, but in terms of making choices that affect the story there were none. Which maybe isn’t part of your vision, maybe Daddy Issues is supposed to be a kinetic novel. In that case I retract this specific criticism.

On the technical side of things I think the dialogue box could be better. In this build of the game the dialogue box is a semi-transparent black rectangle that covers a quarter of the screen at all times. That means a quarter of the beautiful artwork is covered at all time. I think the game would really benefit from the dialogue box being reduced.

Also I couldn’t help but notice the absence of any kind of sound and music. It didn’t bother me personally, but I know it’s a deal breaker for other people.
