this game is fun
also dad can beat shaggy

sweeeeeet i did not lose a life :D it was super fun. i think that this is exactly what the 2000's Dad's were like

Well, if I'm gonna become a dad, at least I must know how it must feel! :D :D :D

Now I know what fatherhood is like

I remember playing this years ago. It was amazing. Ten years later, it still holds up.

Also, sort of unrelated, but nowadays, I've been learning more and more about art and animation, and now I can see bits of how this game, as well as the other Dad movies, were made. For example, I realize now that this was drawn with a Mouse. I'm sure Wacom tablets were way more expensive back in 2009.
Now, I'm not criticizing, I'm just saying I see it now.

I feel like rewatching and replaying these have helped me learn. Especially that use of parallax for the pseudo-3d. That's pretty cool.

I hope to see Dad again in the future.
