Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the best of the best octopus father simulator games out there. It does a great job of showcasing the many hurdles an octopus dad have to overcome in its day to day life.
Moving on from the jokes, Octodad is an awesome physics based game and is such a blast to play. The game is focused around controlling an octopus which can be quite demanding and difficult when trying to act like a normal human being. Despite how much stuff you might destroy and how obvious you might think it is that you are an octopus in disguise does it not seem to matter to people around you. Everyone just seems to accept that you do things a little differently and that you have some troubles walking and all the rest of the motoric functions a human can do.
The game is based around following a story with your family as you go through some of the major events for this octodad and his family as well as some ordinary events like shopping or making dinner. All this might sound trivial and boring, but when in the hands or should I say tentacles of an octodad does everything have an ability to somehow get much more fun and interesting. You have to be accurate and this is much easier said than done without any joints and while being essentially a very fluent blob. You need to go through your daily life without being suspicious. And more importantly than all others you have to make your family happy.
It’s a great game with an awesome story and some really fun and unique gameplay. The thing about physics based games is how awesome and fun it is to interact with the world and the environment when there’s added a little twist to see all the fun and weird outcomes possible. It’s a great game and a really good time to play through and enjoy for yourself. Highly recommended.
