A Child longs to soar through the sky with the grace of an eagle and the destructive power of a four foot nuke! Follow generations of “Dads” on a quest to the legendary Dad Island. As each Dad dies, its Child will grow up, obtain a Child of their own and will seek to finish what their Dad started; to complete this grand Dadventure.

Be a Dad red

Our Dads may not look like much, but they can sure pack the best lunch ever! In Dad Quest, ‘Dad’ is a title taken by those who love their children and can come in many shapes, sizes and genders. They can learn new abilities to make them a little more durable in combat situations and can open up new routes to explore.

Raise a child red

The Child is an indestructible force of nature! The Dad needs the Child to overcome his greatest foes while the Child without the guidance of the Dad will not experience the joy of flight! It is an unbreakable bond with mutual respect and love.

Toys heading red

Playtime is fun time! Your child can hold onto two different toys, each of which can alter the stats and abilities of the Child, these can make them stronger or give them awesome new skills. These can be bought from the local toy store, dropped by creatures, found in chests or given to you as quest rewards.

Heirlooms heading red

Dads are drawn to old items like a crow to a shiny nickel and there is nothing older than a family heirloom! These heirlooms can alter the Dads abilities, improve their attributes and change certain game mechanics. Much like toys, a Dad can carry two of these Heirlooms along with them on the Dad Quest. These items are much rarer than toys and can be purchased for large sums of money from the antique store. You can also discover these items in treacherous areas. As each Dad dies, the Child will grow up and inherit the heirlooms obtained and will be selectable on the shelves in the family living room.

Friends And Foes red

Dad Quest is full of strange and mysterious creatures! Some are violent while others will mind their own business or display bad etiquette by hurting people accidentally.

We'd like to thank everyone who has supported the team thus far. We acknowledge that updates have not been so frequent, but the team have been working very hard on the game and we are also close to finishing development on the third chapter. We hope that you love the additions and are looking forward to Chapter 3.

However, if you have not yet purchased Dad Quest and are interested in picking it up, we have a very odd request! Do not buy Dad Quest... yet! You see, with Father's Day approaching on June 17th, we are going to celebrate with a hefty 60% off!

What we recommend is adding the game to your wishlist and waiting until Father's Day to fully utilise the dadly savings that are planned. In the coming weeks we'll be revealing more info and celebrating the release of Chapter 2 with a couple of fresh announcements.

So there we go. Those who are already embarking on the Dad Quest have a month to explore the new content before anyone else. We also hope to see many of you Dads to be return on June 17th when the game receives its biggest discount to date!
