True achievements

  • Conclusion: Me and my 5 year old son went through the majority of the game and give our thoughts in our video review. Me controlling both legs and an arm, him just one arm. See footage from a bunch of different levels, discussion about some of the achievements and more.

  • Summary: The hard work and concentration put into every little action along the way, along with an unshakable concern for Octodad’s ultimate fate, make the experience feel larger and more significant than can be measure in megabytes.

  • Excerpt: We all want something new. It becomes tiresome to see a concept be repeated over-and-over again, with just the names changing. On that basis alone, jumping into the body of an octopus posing as a fath

Game Chronicles
10 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the latest indie-darling to arrive on Steam, and it’s taking the gaming world by storm thanks to its quirky charm and fiendishly difficult gameplay.

  • Conclusion: Still, Octodad is three hours of fun I wouldn’t want to throw back. While it is too short an experience it’s a great, unique one and I urge anyone who likes fun games to give it a go.

  • Excerpt: Octodad: Dadliest Catch leans heavily into its core premise, but once you start playing, that’s exactly what you’ll want it to do. If you’re ready to not take yourself so seriously, it’s exactly the sort of romp that can make for a memorable evening with friends or without.
  • Pros: Core concept is a blast, writing is surprisingly fresh
  • Cons: Game ramps up awkwardly and ends too soon

  • Conclusion: Octodad: Dadliest Catch doesn’t always play to its strengths – mechanically or conceptually – but it’s still an enjoyable and unusual game whose charms ultimately won me over.
