Start your quest to become a BBQ DAD. Choose your DAD, select your menu, and get grillin'!

BBQ DAD is a sorta resource management sim where you cook a weekly BBQ for an ever changing audience. Make sure to remember any dietary requirements, and keep an eye on the grill to flip and serve your food at just the right time.

This version is a preview of sorts. I originally planned to make this entirely on a week off. That was three weeks ago.

Upcoming additions:

  • Feminine DADs, and more
  • Better accessibility options
  • Free Grill mode with unlimited items
  • More food items (including more veggie and vegan options)
  • Food preparation
  • More scenarios
  • And more?

Aaah I had a ton of fun playing this! It's kinda nice to play a stress-free game. The "nice flip" and "halloumi bonus" cracks me up, and I genuinely cackled at the dad jokes. I'm really pleased to see this project come to fruition!
