Octodad: Dadliest Catch - Overview video

What if QWOP's haphazard runner had eight limbs, no bones and a predisposition towards kicking the people he loved?

It's an important, bold question, answered by Octodad: Dadliest Catch, the recently released effort from Chicago-based indie developer Young Horses. The title, which is now available on Steam at a launch-window discount (and coming to PlayStation 4 later this year), tasks you with completing menial tasks in the floppiest manner imaginable, all the while hiding your true, sea-dwelling nature. See, Octodad is an octopus pretending to be a human — you might not have picked up on that, so convincing is his disguise.

In this Overview, Justin and Griffin put the sucker-armed hero through his paces, showing you the finer points of virtual fatherhood, burger free-throwing, kid-marinating and drunken interior decoration. Also, Justin makes Octodad cook himself, which is fun.
