EDIT II: This post has been going around as definite proof that the Cult Ending is fact, and the real way the game works. As such, I’ve been accused of spreading misinformation, to a degree that I’ve been getting extremely toxic and damaging messages.
I want to clarify at this point, this post was made as a vent, back when the data-mine of the Cult End was beginning, and we first got the info that it was a file in the game. The Data-Mine is pretty much finished now, at this point; nothing new to find. And it’s revealed that, while the ending is in a playable state, no coding in the game actually makes it possible to play it. There’s no outcome you can get to trigger this end.
No one is sure if this is a cut ending, future DLC, or if it’s a bug messing up the coding trigger. All we know is we found it, and I made a post too hasty in assumption. I made it when we still thought it was possible to achieve.
So please. Take this with a grain of salt. I don’t want to delete this post, as I feel like it would give the bad impression that I simply wanted to spread fire, with no care for repercussions. But I do want people to know I’ve learned now.
I’m sorry to everyone that I deceived with this. It wasn’t my intention at all, but execution doesn’t always pan out like we hope.
EDIT III: Good god, how often am I going to be updating this post.
Well, we have verification the ending isn’t as scrapped as we thought it was.
The updated files include more trigger codings, and has added the achievement trigger for what we presume is “Escape the Margarita Zone,” as it is listed as “ACHIEVEMENT_SECRET.”
While it doesn’t necessarily mean the ending is definitely going to be playable in the future, it does make the ending’s chances of becoming a possible canon that much more of a reality.
Man. The reveal of what Joseph actually is both amazes and horrifies me further than what we’ve seen.
Okay, so data-mining revealed that Joseph does have a good ending, but it’s not much different from the bad. He still remains with Mary, but he takes you in as a side-man (AKA, he stays with you to continue an affair on Mary.) It’s not very good either, so I won’t be surprised to see people voice disappointment when they get it.
HOWEVER, data-mining found something even worse in the code. And that is Joseph has a third ending, a secret ending, and potentially, the TRUE ending of not only his route, but the game entirely. This ending has been dubbed “cult ending.”
This ending ended up revealing that Joseph is not at all what he seems. He’s not a man living a broken marriage, forcing himself to stay with an alcoholic and cheating wife to have some semblance of a family life with his kids. No, this family he’s created is simply a facade to hide who he is.
Joseph isn’t human. He some sort of demonic entity that has an ulterior motive. His children aren’t truly his children in the sense that you’d assume, they’re more like broken portions of himself, inhabiting child-like forms. And Mary is a woman who was forced to play a role to paint a picture, an illusion. Something she can’t escape from, because Joseph literally has her wrapped around his finger.
Joseph also is a leader of a cult (Obviously, given the fact that this ending is dubbed “cult end.”) I’m not too knowledgeable about the cult, but apparently it’s a front to rituals and the like. We know Robert was, at one point, a part of the cult, but isn’t any longer.
And finally, we know Joseph is drawing forth energy from other single dads, possibly both sexually and ritualistically, to bring the “Eternal King” back to life. He specifically needs the energy from single dads, and with some sort of dark magic, he lures them to his part of town for ease of access. He also is responsible for causing the events of them all being single. Every single dad, he influenced their destinies to fuel his own ambitions.
And once you find this out, you start noticing shit everywhere! There’s symbols of his cult in practically every part of town. Certain behaviors give an odd feeling. It’s just… it’s shocking to go back in to see this.
The cult end finishes with a man name Saul Graves coming to speak to you, and telling you to try and live your life normally. I’m not sure the entirety of the end, I guess it implies Joseph is on the run now? I don’t know, if anyone can clarify it, let me know.
Now, this was a beyond shocking twist to a lot of people. Especially since the game is so comedic, and the other routes, while they may have poignant moments, it’s nothing completely horrifying. I know I certainly was beyond stunned to discover this, but I honestly had a feeling something would happen like this. Though I wasn’t expecting it to actually be Joseph’s route to cause this; I thought it would’ve been a route where you don’t date any dads!
And I know that there’s some speculation that the “cult end” isn’t truly canon (As in, Joseph isn’t actually in a cult or is a demon, it’s just there for intrigue) and is just a dream end. But the fact you start noticing shit after experiencing the end, imagery and encounters, it just… I really can’t see this as being nothing but the truth. Even if you don’t get the ending where you find out what Joseph truly is, he’s still a demonic entity with dark motives, influencing the town and its people to his goals.
And then there’s something that’s honestly quite saddening to think. It’s because of the fact that, even if you don’t get the cult end, it doesn’t change what Joseph is. He’s using single dads’ energy to summon his King to the world. He SPECIFICALLY needs single dads. He has caused all of the other dads to lose their significant other to further his goals, from divorce to death. He’s the reason they’re single in the first place.
Because of this, you pairing up with a dad doesn’t give me a good feeling. Because he needs the dads to be single to draw their energy. And he doesn’t care about “true love” or “good ends.” He’ll tear you apart to forward his goals.
Joseph doesn’t care if Craig’s ending was the cutest thing anyone’s experienced. Joseph doesn’t care if you truly have a connection to Mat.
He needs you two to be single to feed off of you both. And he knows how to break you two apart without anyone ever expecting a thing.
Basically, the reveal of what Joseph is makes me look in fear at all of the other dads, look in fear of their good ends. Because even if it’s a happy end we experienced in what we saw, it implies it’s not meant to last. Down the road, we’ll either be broken up by Joseph’s influences, or he’ll influence one of our’s deaths.
And we won’t think anything odd about it. We’ll just think it didn’t work out, or that life is a cruel mistress.
This is so sinister, like I both love it for the intrigue, but hate it because I genuinely wanted cute moments, and now knowing what Joseph is, I can’t see them as cute anymore. I can’t see myself being happy with any of the Dad’s routes, because there’s that looming thought that it’ll just end in sadness again.
Fucking christ. I didn’t sign up for Dream Daddy to be this dark.
EDIT: This post really blew up, to the point that people are wondering if I’m making shit up due to lack of sources. I wasn’t intending this to get big, it was a vent/personal post, with at most some theories on implications that I thought would get lost to the various other posts people make. I made a reblog showing links that give more info, but for future people that find the post, here are various links on the info we have on the route.
This isn’t “overreacting” or “making a big deal out of nothing” this is a genuine problem and I’m tired of skinny people deciding what is and isn’t offensive to fat people. White people don’t get to declare what is racist, Straight people don’t get to decide what is homophobic, and Cis people don’t get to decide what is transphobic.
So, that being said, your skinny idealized-by-society selves do not get to decide when fat people are experiencing fatphobia.
My entire god damn life has been a fat joke, I would walk down halls and people would make jokes like “fatty want a donut” and while waiting outside the classroom for the teacher to show up would say “try not to eat us.”
I watch shows, listen to music, read comics and books to escape; not to see one of the very few characters representing me to be subjected to the same fucking stereotype placed upon me by society.
The stereotype that; because I’m fat my only motivation, my only goal, and my only desire in life, is food. That my only passion is to cook. That my only source of happiness comes from eating.
And it’s fucking upsetting, and even more so when it’s brushed off as not being an issue.
Skinny characters get multifacted personalities. The jokester who is self-conscious. The reserved loner who has a temper but is actually vulnerable and going through an identity crisis and experiences racism. The geek who is seen as calculated and a walking wikipedia but actually has feelings and is missing their loved ones and learns what true friendship is. The delicate princess that is so dainty and light yet embraces those things and learns to fight and kill a man with her bare hands if she so desired.
But what do fat people get?
Either tall hulking brute that is overly agressive and overpowered. Or the super soft and squishy fat guy that loves everyone and is obsessed with food. Maybe, just maybe, sometimes we will get the tolerable asshole who makes dick jokes and is overly cocky but secretly kind (90% of the time they’re gamers).
So to see a character that could also have a family he misses, or has lost. A character that could also relate with racial issues. A character motivated by his teamates, that used to be nauseous just riding in his lion that now blows up ships just for tailgaiting and is strong enough to probably carry multiple people by himself, that would sacrifice himself in a heartbeat to save a stranger let alone those he loves…
Boiled down to a shitty joke where he frantically chases the smell of a pie to get to the center of a maze as motivation.
Makes me want to fucking cry, because my one safe space, my one escape; is using the same type of shitty jokes that kids used while shoving me in locker rooms and snapping rubber bands against my skin in class.
Though I’m so sorry for “over reacting” and inconveniencing you.
I’m so sorry for speaking out about a character that you don’tcare about.
But more than anything, I’m sorry that you’re truly that heartless to tell hundreds of people who are being genuinely hurt to basically “get over it.”
Something I’ll never understand is when people attack somebody and then act surprised that their target’s friends come to defend them.
“This doesn’t involve you.” Well, of course it doesn’t, at least not in the way you intended. But you’re attacking my friend, somebody I trust and respect. Somebody that I’m going to be talking to later, and I’ll be seeing how what you’ve done or said has affected that person. Maybe they’ll be upset by it. And, well, I dunno about you, but I don’t like seeing my friends upset. It makes me upset.
So yeah, roundabout though it may be, it does involve me. So don’t act so surprised when your intended audience decides that your words of attack are full of shit and call you out on it.
Every actor loves playing dress-up, losing yourself in a character, and having fun. Not to get too deep with Deadpool, but he filters all his pain through a prism of comedy and humor. I love that. I relate to that. I’ve done that since I was a little kid. I’m the youngest of four boys in my family so I was never gonna win anything with my fists. I had to win it with my mouth, and I think that’s essentially Deadpool as well. – Ryan Reynolds
if you’re a mlm and you truly care about mlm/wlw solidarity, if a wlw is pointing out problems (namely sexism) in the mlm community, your response shouldn’t be, “wow, guess the solidarity is over/was fake all along!”, it should be, “how do we fix this?”
- The Hybrid- what is it? What’s so important you would fight so long? - Doesn’t matter what the hybrid is. It only matters that I convinced them that I knew. Otherwise they would keep me out with nothing left to bargain with. -What are you bargaining for? -What do you think? You. I’d have to find the way to save you.
It was terrifying how much could change in a year. To think that just a few short weeks could change everything about you was daunting, but true. When you had left life felt like torture, like everywhere you looked there was something waiting to mock you. You were broken, your heart all but ashes when you boarded the first flight away, but you knew it was what you needed to do. You needed time away from it all to figure out what you wanted, to figure out who you were without all of the things you’d grown so used to. It was hard, leaving it all behind, like you just gave away a piece of yourself with no plans of ever getting it back.
Loving Byun Baekhyun was hard, but letting that love go, was harder.
If you’re a fan of an actor and that actor says “hey please don’t do this or say this because it makes me uncomfortable and i really don’t like it”, and you continue to do what they asked you not to despite them repeatedly asking people not to, you don’t truly care about that actor and their feelings. If you get angry at an actor for speaking out against things that makes them uncomfortable (shipping them with friends for example!!!!), you don’t truly care about that actor and their feelings. What you really care about is whatever fantasy you’ve conjured up. Ok bye

-Him being quite stunned to feel such a kind and warm touch from you as you’d ask him if he’s alright the first time you’d see him injured, only to quickly act like he didn’t need it and pushing your hand away to not seem weak but already yearning for it more
-Him forgetting himself when you’re both alone and reaching to hold your hands back as you’d touch his arms, reassuring you he’s alright and having quite a fixation over looking at your hands while they’re in his
-Him feeling his heart racing yet putting all his effort to act indifferent as you’d sit so close and stroke his hair while holding him so tightly, only to not even stop you once
-Him letting go of his tough/cocky act the moment you’d hug him tightly from the back and rest your head against his shoulder, whether it be to keep him from leaving or just to comfort him as he realizes how much you truly care for him
-Him being quite possessive and learning to be more boastful when it comes to showing up in public with you, holding your hand tight when you’d walk together or even as you’d hold onto his arm
-Him getting speechless whenever you’d help him wash himself or even just as you’d give him a shoulder or back rub, realizing as to how much you’re taking care of him before reluctantly denying how emotional he is
-Him unable to keep his eyes off of you the moment you’d beg him with your hand cupping his cheek, slowly reaching back up to feel your hand himself to make sure it’s all real
-Him unable to stop himself from holding onto you back as you’d rush to hug him after witnessing him in danger, even shaking slightly to realize how worried he made you
-Him getting cocky and quite hungry for your touches as you’d have sex, usually pulling your hands right to his body or even to kiss them so much
-Him being somewhat quiet whenever you’d tease him about the way he acts from your touches, only to mumble and admit that he has simply learned to enjoy it
We said our final goodbyes and my heart broke in two. I would have waited for you for the rest of my life if all you needed was time but sadly, you showed me time and time again that I was always the one who cared more. You always fought me about that- claiming you care just as much but I think you forget actions speak louder than words and if you truly did care as much as me, we’d be together regardless of our circumstances. I’m sorry you couldn’t love me the way that I loved you because I would have given you the world.
