“Dream Daddy” Comics

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Monday, everyone!

On a fairly recent post, I mentioned how a comic app was coming to the Nintendo Switch. Then I heard about a mini comic series based on a game that we played and enjoyed almost a year ago…


Way back in November 2017 Rachel and I did a review for a visual novel/dating simulation game produced by the Game Grumps, a popular YouTube channel, called Dream Daddy. It was a fun game, one with fantastic characters, writing, and graphics, as well as celebrating gender and sexuality diversity.

Recently I heard that the Dream Daddy game is going to have comics based off of them. There will be five issues, with one available now and the rest being released within the next couple of months. Each issue will feature one to two of the dads that your character can romance in the game, and they’ll be available on quite a few digital platforms — Steam, Google Play, iTunes, Comixology — as well as a print version through Oni Press online shop, the folks who are publishing the series.

Considering Rachel and I enjoyed the game, I figured if we have a little extra money on our Steam account we’ll get an issue or two. Depending on the writing and the artwork, maybe we’ll splurge on all of the issues to see how the comics expand on the game lore.

Did you play Dream Daddy? What kind of comics based off of video games, or vice versa, have you read?

The Cold Case Of Noella Bejerot [Demo Review]

Demo Review of The Cold Case of Noella Bejerot | Visual Novel | Video Games | Murder Mystery | DoublexJump.com

The Cold Case of Noella Bejerot is a comedic murder mystery visual novel game for PC and Mac. It was created by Marty Duff and Caty Herndon. The demo was released in December 2017 and, after talking with the developer, Kris and I were eager to try the game out.

We enjoy mystery video games, especially those that have a comedic twist to them, like the Ace Attorney franchise and the Professor Layton series, and visual novels seem to be the perfect medium for these kinds of games. The demo of Cold Case seems to include the first case, a trial both for the player and the main character.

It was quick, taking us about an hour, and everything was laid out for us to explore and learn the mechanics of the game. I knew what it was going in, but the game turned out to be much more than I expected. Not only do you have to pick what to do next and where to go, like most visual novels, you can interact with the background in search for clues and evidence. You can also talk to your partner and she’ll show you statements of the suspects as well as brief information on each of them.

It is up to you to click through what you believe to be important evidence in the crime scenes as well as picking through the suspect and witness statements to determine who is the likely culprit. After searching the crime scene, you bring the evidence you collected to forensics, where another character gives further details about the clues to help you connect the pieces of the case. Sounds pretty standard in a mystery visual novel, but there is one catch — Grace faints at the sight of blood.

This adds a little intensity to the game. You have five chances to look at bloody items in the room before Grace passes out. This means you have to pick and choose what you think may be important before you even look at it. That’s what I enjoyed the most, I think. The characters were all very quirky and the dialogue was witty and funny at some points.

Each character is fairly distinct with their voices, mannerisms, and looks. The graphics were cute, giving way to a few character tropes that are found in mystery games and books, such as the hardened, deadpan head detective and the brightly colored main character. The music was well done, too, and we’re looking forward to seeing how the rest of the game comes out!
