Octodad pulling on those heartstrings, getting all serious.

Showed my girlfriend the last gameplay trailer, thinking she'd be into it. She said that the octopus is a jerk for pretending to be their dad. That not only was he knocking a ton of shit over, he was lying to his fake family.

This trailer makes me think there could be some lovely metaphorical stuff in here about what it is to be a husband/father. But please, please don't make some weird backstory where like the mind of a man got put into an octopus or something. This trailer kind of hinted at something more to the character, and that would be awful.

Aww, that was actually really sweet. Can't wait to play this, first game I ever played on a PS4.

I think it just tried to show him missing the Ocean, his real home, and the Chef only knew him, because he wanted to well, cook and eat him, I guess.

So, what's the gamplay hook in this, aside from "Hey, you know how ragdoll looks ridiculous 99% of the time?" It looks funny and junk, but I still don't know what kind of game it is.

Is there some hidden layer to Octodad that I wasnt aware of? Either way, this looks like a good time.

@sessh: Yep, that's what I thought, and what I'm hoping it still is. It could be so much more poignent if he really just is an Octopus.

@ultimaxe: From what I've seen, it's basically a simple adventure game with the fun of awkward controls in the vein of QWOP or Surgeon Simulatior. The gameplay video that was released is you, as Octodad getting dressed on your wedding day, so you have to go from room to room, solving (really) simple puzzles to find your tie, coat, etc.

Is the PC version gonna have controller support? I played the PS4 kiosk version and thought the controls were actually super fun, I don't want to go back to a keyboard and I don't wanna wait til March.

@joshwent: The joke of the series is that despite him being an ordinary octopus, he really *is* the father of those children, which defies logic and explanation. It's just that nobody has noticed that he's an octopus yet, not even his children or the woman he presumably fathered those children yet. It's all very, very silly. n_n

been waiting a long time for this one, considering the early version was in 2009.

Aagh, I want to play Octodad with the PS4 controller but I want it sooner than later. I wonder if it'll work with controllers on the PC.

You wear a disguise to look like human guys, but you're not a man, you're a Chicken Boo.

How did she get a free trip to the aquarium? She is the one who is really hiding something.

I never imagined that Octodad could pull on my heartstrings, but the end of that trailer was good. And yes, please, tell me ALL about sharks.

Wow, that trailer switched it up on me half way through, was NOT expecting that shift.

On the Bombcast a bit ago the guys mentioned that this is a game that doesn't really make sense until you play it. Apart from the absurdity, I'm not sure I get what the excitement is about...but I'd love to play it sometime.

Didn't Octodad start as an anti-drug game? Or was that something else?

If this was Greenlight it'd be a thumbs down.

Maybe it's something you just have to play to get. (I doubt it)

They really upped those graphics eh. Remember when it looked like a PS2 game. Good on them for sticking with this octodad thing. Pretty funny, but it always reminds me of Chicken-Boo.

@triviaman09: You're an octopus and you try to perform everyday tasks with a goofy control scheme and wild physics that leads to hilarious results. I was laughing like an idiot at [LARGE ELECTRONICS RETAIL CHAIN] as I played it on a PS4 demo station.

Same here dude. My girlfriend and I were having a blast getting through that demo. I'm super stoked to play it when it comes out.
