Octodad brings nautical nonsense to dry land


If nautical nonsense be something you wish, Young Horses, the studio behind Octodad: Dadliest Catch, hopes to deliver that and more with its console release.

For those unfamiliar with Octodad, he is a loveable octopus who was the protagonist of the game. He is a well dressed octopus pretending to be a human, which proves to be difficult without the use of fingers or opposable thumbs.

ODC seems to be less about being sneaky but more about the hilarity of going through the everyday life of a human as an octopus. Physics make the game, I repeat, physics, the subject people often dreaded in school, is actually fun this time around. This concept is expressed in the many tasks Octodad has to do such as tying a tie, grilling burgers and opening doors which are all done with tentacles that the player controls.

ODC was released on PC on January 30 and is making its way to the PS4 today. The PS4 version also features PlayStation Move support. For more information you can check out Young Horses website here.
