Octodad - eight legs of fun


Last night we spent some time playing Octodad- dadliest catch. This is a deeply silly game where you take the role of a man sized octopus taking the role of an ordinary suburban husband. Although your lack of co-ordination and deep seated fear of aquariums is starting to raise suspicions....

We played it on the PlayStation 4, and it at least gave us a reason to get out all that PlayStation Move hardware, which was a surprisingly good fit with the unwieldy tentacles of our hero. Towards the end things got surprisingly poignant, and I never did find out just what happens in the aquarium cafe, when we meet our nemesis, the mad chef who is one of the very few who know the fishy secret.

If you are looking for something fun to play, with a compelling story line, then it is worth seeking out.
