Hit Indie Game 'Octodad' Gets a Sequel, Coming to Linux in 2013


Octodad, easily one of the most hilarious indie games, has just got a sequel - Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

Octodad was released in 2010 and become quite popular because of its innovative concept and funny theme. The game won numerous game awards and praises from all around the world.

If you don't know about Octodad:

Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family.

The player controls Octodad like a marionette, dragging his arms and legs around while his body flops along. The player’s goals are often simple household chores made difficult and interesting by the flailing, tenuous control they have over Octodad’s body. Being an octopus also has its strengths. Octodad can slip through tight spaces, grab objects with his suckers, and knock things around with tremendous strength. But if the player does things too out-of-the-ordinary, Octodad’s family will grow suspicious and realize what he really is. If they do, it’s game over for Octodad!



The original Octodad is available as a free download for Windows and Mac. However, the sequel will be available for Linux as well. This time, it seems that Octodad has got himself into deep trouble in local aquarium.

Check out the teaser trailer:



Octodad: Dadliest Catch is expected to be released in 2013.
