Enjoy watching me struggle to defeat the nefarious controls of Octodad in this informative motion picture video:
 

  
 Octodad is an accurate simulation of the struggle of everyday life and fatherhood for a dad who also happens to be an octopus.
 
Also, the controls are terrible.
 
TERRIBLE. Henceforth, octopus. Ergo, Octodad.
 
The controls are Octodad.
 
A bird is now fluttering at my window, so I must leave you to go sing to it and pet deer and bunnies in the forest.

that is the most amazing concept for a game ever.

Oh god. That octopus is married to a human.

You pulled off Zoidberg perfectly!

Pictures? In motion!? I say, this is a must watch.

Why does Octo-dad only have 4 tentacles? This game is a lie.
 
EDIT: this game looks like what would have happened if the designers of Jurassic Park:Trespasser had actually implemented their two arm control scheme. And were Japanese.

@nintendoeats:  Octodad most certainly has eight tentacles. His mustache accounts for at least 12 tentacles and with 8 being less than 12, I can say with certainty that he has at least 8.
#9 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -
@Hamst3r: It only looks like two mustache tentacles in the video...So i suppose if you assume that his feet consist of two tentacles each we might be on to something...
 
But more than 8 would make him a more-than-octo-dad, so it doesn't resolve our problem.

Sold.

This is the best....

Is this the Pirates of the Caribbean game which got cancelled?

This was great, man. Thanks for sharing.

#14 Posted by Jambones (1696 posts) -

Fascinating. Thought the interspecies romance was a little unnerving to say the least.

#15 Posted by bonbolapti (1612 posts) -

OCTODAD IS PROBABLY THE BEST GAME EVER IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT.
 
... right?

#16 Posted by Hamst3r (4484 posts) -
I <3 all of you.
 
@X19:  Yes. Yes it is.

    YOUR ON BITCH!
If I didn't have an AWESOME, ORIGINAL avatar picture already, I would definitely use this one!

The Wife reminds me of Moira Brown.

#19 Edited by Mikemcn (6988 posts) -

Im ok with being a octopus, but can I also be a dad?
 
And you have an awesome Radio Voice.

#20 Edited by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -

Shit be crazy because you're an octopus.
 
"You'll have to give me a moment here, I'm finding myself to be an octopus"

#21 Posted by TurboMan (7545 posts) -

Fantastic job by the way...  you would have had hall of fame material if you did a Zoidberg impression throughout the entire video.

#22 Posted by Weltal (2273 posts) -

Awesome job but now I kinda wish you would draw representations of the game and talk over it instead of actually play it.

#23 Posted by Xeiphyer (5604 posts) -

Ok, I gotta stop watching this or i'm going to kill myself. Those controls. Oh god.

#24 Posted by CookieMonster (2417 posts) -

This was hilarious, especially the part where you had to squish the spiders.

WE WILL MEET AGAIN OCTOPUS

#26 Posted by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -
@Hamst3r: You should do one of Gravity Bone next! It's another really short free download game!
 
Also, I can't figure out if that chef was Slavic or Japanese. He did say "ruse" in place of "lose", though...
#27 Edited by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

Lmao, holy shit. 
 
Make him do the Electric Slide.

#28 Posted by FlyingRat (1446 posts) -

I was thinking the same thing, except this. Also, my avatar is lazy but I don't want to change it.

#32 Posted by Hamst3r (4484 posts) -
Thanks, all! :D
 
<3
 
@TurboMan:  I gotta practice my Zoidberg - only sounds good in 3 second bursts. :P
 
@ThatFrood: I might indeed do that some day, though I have already played it!
#33 Posted by Zithe (1045 posts) -

I decided to get a screengrab of that previous picture without the "full screen" message in case anyone actually wants to use it.
 

I think you can get the full size images from my profile. (They are quite big.)

#35 Posted by Zimbo (875 posts) -

This may be one of the best videos I have ever watched. Hamst3r, you continue to amaze and entertain.

#36 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

I watched this earlier on. Really funny.

Same voice actress.
#37 Posted by Hamst3r (4484 posts) -

Danke Shon.
 
@Zithe: I have already used the image as a reply to someone on another forum. :D

Is there an unlockable Octomom mode where you have to take care of 14 kids?

Lol'd.

I'm still waiting for you to begin playing longer games again. 
Heck even the Penumbra games I would watch... 
 
But I guess I have to live with this filth!  
 
 
@Choi: I wouldn't use that. 
The pathetic 10 year old boy-error with screencapping the "Press Esc To Exit full screen mode" -message turned me off :(

#43 Posted by Hamst3r (4484 posts) -

<3
 
@ZeForgotten:  I'll be getting back into longer games in a few weeks. Just got a lot of life and work stuff going on right now. :D

#44 Edited by jmrwacko (2443 posts) -

Based loosely off Octomom.

#45 Posted by jim_dandy (891 posts) -
@Hamst3r:  Guess what I had to google to find this.

#46 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -
@Hamst3r: I know how that feels yeah. 
Who are we kidding, we don't have a life!  
 
But hey, I've waited weeks already so I guess waiting another week or two. Or 4. 
Well that will be a cakewalk :D 
 
How does a cake walk?
#47 Posted by Skullo (646 posts) -

Braver man than I would be.

#48 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

That was great. I couldn't stop man-giggling at the whole thing. The whole time I felt like it was a simulation of what it's like to try to walk when you're blackout drunk.

#49 Posted by artofwar420 (6289 posts) -

HILARIOUS, thanks for bring this game to our attention.
