A very good morning/afternoon/evening to you all, and also a very Merry Christmas!
Well, here we are, the final (story) update for our long-running debut VN, “Dating My Daughter”…
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT BY SUBSCRIBING HERE: https://www.subscribestar.com/mrdotsgames
Even though it’s been just over six years since the very first update was released, it sure doesn’t feel like it’s been that long.
So much has happened since our “D” showed up on you, her father’s doorstep.
DMD has changed my life and also others who have worked with me on this project
Me and my main writer, HearszAM feel incredibly privileged to be able to do this for a living and we’ve never taken it for granted.
Whenever we’ve been told that it couldn’t be done, we always believed we could give the game the conclusion that it has always deserved.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without all of your generosity and support over this time.
You, the fans deserve these ending(s) as much as anyone else.
The success of DMD has enabled us to not only have better lives but to also create two more VN’s – Melody and Sunshine Love.
And we have no intention of stopping, as we’ll also be releasing a brand-new game sometime in 2023: Stay tuned for some previews in the new year!
Creating DMD hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but in this industry, it sometimes isn’t.
It can be tiring, stressful, incredibly challenging… But that’s just part and parcel of what we do.
In saying that, it’s also been a lot of fun, a great way to meet and talk to like-minded people and the most important thing for us is that our imaginations are challenged every single day. It’s not always perfect but we know that it can’t always be like that.
People every so often ask me or my team, “How do you get into this kind of industry?”
And my answer is always the same:
“All you need to do is have an idea, be willing to always learn and discover new ways of doing things, but most importantly: never give up.”
We learn new things almost every single day (even six years later) and we have every intention of evolving and improving the quality of our future games.
Finishing DMD has been a huge goal of ours over the past few years now and as sad as it is to see it finally come to an end, we also feel comfortable with our decision to finally conclude it.
About this update
One question we have been asked a lot recently has been: How many endings will there be in the game?
After completing Melody a few years ago and going back over some of the fan feedback for the endings that we created for that VN, it gave us some great ideas for how we should go about creating the endings for DMD.
Rather than “us” telling you what the best ending is to F and D’s story, the endings that we have created will allow “you” the player, to determine what your best ending is. We understand that everyone’s ideal ending will be different for everyone.
Hopefully, we’ve created an ending that satisfies both your hopes and desires 😉
When we left our two main characters at the conclusion of Day 49, D had managed to land one of two major jobs working for music superstar, Koko.
One of those jobs may sound better than the other, but that may not necessarily suit you and your daughter’s lifestyle (not to mention how it could affect your private life).
And if you are looking to start a family with your daughter, there’s also that to take into consideration.
All up, there are 15 endings in the game. However, six of the endings have two different versions for each, with one or more differences between both.
We’ve also added a Koko option to the “Relationships” menu which will be in the bottom right-hand side of that screen.
It will become available as soon as Day 50 begins.
Special Bonus Render(!)
On the home screen for Chapter 4, up in the right-hand side of your screen you will see an icon named “Game Endings” and it will take you to a screen with 16 Locked images.
Each time you find one of the game endings, the boxes will be unlocked with that ending that you have just found.
If you manage to find all 15 endings, then at the very bottom of this screen will be a bonus render unlocked, one that we have created for you!
The other icon on the home screen contains images from our good friend, designer and huge DMD fan, Pat/Chey.
The images are taken from his “2023 Dee Calendar “ that he created recently.
Plans for the revision update and our “DMD Fantasy Scenes”
Due to how much time, work and effort has gone into all four chapters of DMD, having to go back and fix errors, bugs,
or plot holes was always going to take a fair amount of time to get right.
We were hoping to have all of that fixed to go along with this last-ever update but we’ve realised that we’re going to need some more time to do a full revision of all four chapters.
The revision will include grammar fixes from the very first day of the game, fixing renders, animations, plot holes, edits and additions to the sound FX and music, but we will also be looking to add in more renders, extend certain scenes and include more options for you as well.
We will also have some updates put aside next year for our standalone “DMD Fantasy Scene Collection”.
This game will contain alternate scenes and short stories featuring various characters from DMD, sometimes in situations that are not related to the story part of the game (the main VN).
Which characters would you like to see get together and feature in an alternate scene?
And what kind of situation would you like to see them in?
Let us know in the comments or on our discord fan channel.
DMD CH4 Final Story Update is all yours to download and play!
As of today, we’ll be taking our usual four-week break so we can de-stress and have some much-needed time for ourselves, to recharge our batteries so that we’re well-prepared to start the new year.
We’ll commence work around the last week of January – continuing to create Sunshine Love – Ch 2 Version 5.
We’re still undecided on what month we’ll do the full revision for DMD and when we’ll release the first update for the “DMD Fantasy Scene Collection”.
But once we have worked that out, we’ll let you know right away!
