Video: How Dream Daddy fostered player inclusivity
In this GDC 2018 talk, Game Grumps' Tyler Hutchison discusses the initial goals of Dream Daddy, and how it managed to become something that made a whole lot of people from different backgrounds very happy.
Hutchison explains how Dream Daddy was critically praised for providing players with inclusive representation, examining how certain options were included and the choices and development hours that were required to include them.
With a little love and potentially a small investment of time, he explains how developers can make their game inclusive and give players more representation in character choices.
It's an insightful talk that's definitely worth watching, so developers shouldn't miss the opportunity to do so now that it's freely available on the official GDC YouTube channel!
