Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the sequel of the enjoyable game Octodad developed by Young Horses. In this release, we will the see the beginning of the story of our cephalopod friend. No one knows that he is actually an octopus and he must keep his cover. However, this task is not so easy when you have a family composed by a wife and two sons. Up until now, they have not been suspicious of you, but this may change after a terrifying journey to the local aquarium.
No one knows that he is actually an octopus and he must keep his cover
The guys of Young Horses are real gamers, and they want you to notice it. This way, many Easter eggs are spread throughout the game, and references to famous YouTubers such as PewDiePie or Mangel Rogel can be found. In addition, references to well-known games and indie ones can also be spotted in several stages of the adventure. In this way, Minecraft, The Stanley Parable, Pac-Man, Super Meat Boy or QWOP references are visible while playing.
Once you download it, the cartoon design of Octodad: Dadliest Catch will really please your eyes. Every environment and the characters themselves are very colorful and brilliant. Of course, the ultimate beneficiary of all the power of the graphics is our Octodad. This animations and characterization are really outstanding. The soundtrack and sound effects perfectly contribute to the game style. It includes very catchy melodies and the workers of Young Horses even created their own song (lyrics included).
Gameplay, physics and more
The strongest point of Octodad: Dadliest Catch are the controls. The incredibly high level of difficulty is what has drawn the attention of thousands of players. Controlling Octodad is so difficult that even the most mundane task is almost impossible to carry out. This is the basis of this adventure. You, as Octodad, must perform everyday tasks such as getting dressed, preparing breakfast or mowing the lawn. All these performed with your elastic and boneless limbs. In addition, to make things more complicated, you have to do it without making people be suspicious about your cephalopod nature. However, and incredibly, nobody knows you are an Octopus. Only your cook neighbor knows, and he is your main obstacle since he will try to cook you every time he sees you.
You will have the ability to move your tentacle legs and arms, but just one limb at the same time. Anyway, we all know that control an octopus in a tuxedo without creating a whole mess is quite impossible, but let's try at least. The main drawback Octodad can have, and it is not a disadvantage that can ruin our experience, is that it only provides you with about three hours of entertainment. Once you get used to the controls (if you manage to do it), the story can be completed quite fast. However, as mentioned, it is not a complete disadvantage since with the cooperative mode and the levels created by other user we can enjoy more hours with Octodad.
