Octodad gets voices in the game's latest trailer

Everyone's favorite anthropomorphized cephalopod and friends now have voices in the latest update to Young Horses' Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

The above video is gameplay from the game's "Wedding Bells" stage, in which Octodad and his beloved Scarlet tie the knot, assuming he can make it to the altar fully dressed in time. The stage starts with a short cutscene where the bride frets about her groom's apparent cold feet (cold tentacles?); when Octodad makes it to the chapel she offers encouragement to him as he searches for the ring, destroying much of the church in the process.

The voices and cutscenes "definitely add a ton to the experience," Young Horses' Phil Tibitoski told Polygon, "and we're really happy with the resulting vibe the game now gives off." Tibitoski said the team was working on "finishing up the last 2-3 levels and polishing/testing the whole experience the best we can" before their planned January 2014 launch on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Afterwards, he said, the team would work to ensure that Octodad: Dadliest Catch would awkwardly stumble its way onto PlayStation 4 later that year.
