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.

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.

@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.

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

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

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

@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...

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

@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!

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

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

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 :(

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.
