Is it wrong that the main reason I’m excited to get a PS4 is so I can play Octodad: Dadliest catch? Forget The Order. forget Killzone: Shadow Fall. All this new technology, stronger, faster processor, but somehow the thing that stands out most is Octodad. I’ve watched the trailer more times than I watched the trailer for the Lord of the Rings when that was new and I watched that like twice!
If you were to ask me what the point of the game is, I would say, “Point? There is no point! You’re an Octopus married to a human woman with human kids and you’re dressed in a suit. Why in the name of Vishnu’s scrotum would I need the game to have some kind of further point?” And that really is the long and short of it. You’re a cephalopod, (an exclusively aquatic class of mollusk commonly with large heads and a series of tentacles, ie. octopus) trying to blend in with the human world without having your secret discovered. You’ll bumble around your day, attempting to do routinely mundane tasks with your floppy octopus arms and legs without trying to raise too much suspicion.
This was originally a college project, which is available for free to download HERE. However, Octodad: Dadliest Catch won’t be available until sometime in early 2014.
You can check out the trailer below. I love the theme song.
