"Who's Your Daddy" is a casual competitive game based around the difficulties faced in child care. The infant's life is placed in the hands of the father who is completely unaware of the dangers found in everyday household items such as forks, batteries and trash.
The game features two types of game play. The first being the view of the father. His main challenges are to prevent and control danger from reaching his son. This has to be done by placing locks on cabinets, doors, trash cans, taking special measures if your baby becomes sick, or making sure he does not attempt to cook himself in an oven. Any of these deadly ends can reach your baby and it is your job to make sure it doesn't.
The second form of gameplay is played by the baby. The baby's job is to actively seek out the simple dangers found within the house and give himself unto them. This includes actions such as drinking or eating dangerous materials, putting forks into power outlets, or cooking himself. The baby also has the option to hide in the house and take important items away from the father such as the baby's pills, cabinet looks, or outlet protectors and hiding these items from him.
Why do You Need These Funds?
A good question! This project was mainly started off as a joke, but after working on it for a few days i saw it had some potential. I chose KickStarter for this project to validate this game as a unique experience others are interested in playing. The money from this project will allow me to focus more time and effort towards making this as enjoyable of an experience that I can produce.
Risks and challenges
This is a very low risk project for you to back. I can say this with confidence because the prototype demonstration you see in the video was made within 7 days. More time will allow me to have plenty of play testing and content addition added to the game in the future.
However all projects have its challenges and for this game it will be its replay-ability. My main plan to approach this is in two ways - to randomize the locations of some of the crucial game objects, such as medicine or food for the baby, as well as changing up the sets of objects currently in the house, to ensure a unique experience for each play through.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
