The Watchlist: Dad Quest

Title: Dad Quest
Developer: SundaeMonth
Platforms: PC
In development
Dad Quest is an action-adventure platformer with roguelite and RPG elements that follows a generation of fathers--otherwise known as Dads™--and their children as they travel across the land on a quest to reach Dad Island
In Dad Quest, your ultimate weapon isn't a magic sword or over-sized gun, but your own child, a true force to be reckoned with in this action platformer.

Your quest is simple: reach Dad Island, complete quests, level up, and gather loot along the way. Missions range from escorting characters to defeating enemies. Dad and child traverse an expansive procedurally-generated overworld, encountering enemies, towns, and open hub areas throughout their journey
While your Dad character can unlock new abilities, your child is the most unique aspect about Dad Quest. Children vary in both class, ranging Jock and Scholar to Cultist, and stats, which include power, loyalty, and intelligence. Loyalty increase your child's movement, meaning they run back to you after being thrown, while gaining more power evolves your child to more powerful forms.

Your child is really your most powerful weapon, able to devastate enemies with varied abilities. The Scholar's Gravity Well can fling enemies around the environment, while using Cultist's Shank will send your child rushing towards foes, blade in hand. 
Dad Quest is shaping up to be a quirky action-adventure game; you can follow its progress on TIGSource and Twitter.
