New, 5 comments

Developer Young Horses' octopus-pretending-to-be-a-man simulator Octodad: Dadliest Catch will launch for PlayStation 4 on April 22 in North America and April 23 in Europe, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.

In Dadliest Catch, players control an octopus who has fooled the entire world into thinking he's human. Now, with a wife and two children to care for, as well as a suspicious chef on his tail, Octodad must keep up the ruse and navigate everyday tasks like pouring milk and mowing the lawn without giving away his cephalopod identity.

Octodad launched for Windows PC back in January (check out Polygon's review) and has since been tweaked based on player feedback for the PS4 version. The latter third of the game, according the post by creative director Kevin Zuhn, has undergone "some radical changes" and includes new challenges like swabbing decks and "jig dancing" as well as new disguises for Octodad.

The PS4 version also includes PlayStation Move support for one or two players and the ability to play with PlayStation Move and a Nav controller. This version also include the local co-op mode present in the PC version.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is available for $14.99. PlayStation Plus users can snag the game at a 20 percent discount of $11.99 until April 29. The game's soundtrack is also available for listening on Bandcamp.
