Brian "Rival Dad" Harding is one of the dateable dads in Dream Daddy. He has a corgi named Maxwell that wears a green handkerchief, and a 10 year old daughter named Daisy. He's a general contractor and loves fishing. He also likes to compete with the avatar to be the superior dad. Aggressive dad and bear dad all at once. He can first be met at the park, where he accidentally throws a Frisbee at your head and then the two of you get into a brag battle. If not, Joseph will introduce you to him at the cookout.

Brian also appears in the Dream Daddy Comics published by Oni Press.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to the creators (Vernon Shaw and Leighton Grey), Brian was originally "a conflict-free cinnamon roll." The original concept for Brian was just a big huggable guy. But they eventually felt his story needed work, and that a "Rival Dad" was also something the game lacked. Surprisingly, the rivalry aspects fit well over Brian's story as it stood.[1]
