Octodad: Dadliest Catch studio aiming for April release on PS4

New, 4 comments

Octodad: Dadliest Catch developer Young Horses is aiming to bring the game to PlayStation 4 come April, the studio wrote in a statement on its official Twitter account.

The studio initially offered March as its PS4 release window, following its launch on Windows PC, Mac and Linux in January. In response questions regarding this shift in schedule, the studio tweeted "Basically all you need to know is this is our first ever console release and we want to do it right the first time."

According to studio president Phil Tibitoski, the March PS4 release was still dependent on a few issues. "We still need to work on trophies and some things like that a bit," Tibitoski previously told Polygon. "Though it's more about just giving us some more room to make sure we can get it done. We don't want to make any hasty announcements."

Young Horses is also "thinking about" bringing the title to Xbox One. "Our word on the Xbox One version is 'we're thinking about it,'" reads a tweet from the studio. "We don't currently have plans for Wii U." The studio added there are no plans for a release on PlayStation 3 systems.

The game received a 7 out of 10 review from Polygon, which stated: "When the bizarre controls make mundane tasks impossible, Dadliest Catch is just too funny to be frustrating. When it piles on the weight of traditional video game challenges, controlling the tendrils of an uncooperative marionette becomes instantly less appealing."
