Octodad: Dadliest Catch Confirmed For PS4 Release This Month

By   /   Apr 18, 2014

Young Horses, creators of the plucky Octopus-in-man’s world simulator Octodad: Dadliest Catch, have finally confirmed a launch date for the PlayStation 4.

The game will release on April 22 in North America and April 23 in Europe. It will be priced at $15 but PlayStation Plus users can get a 20 percent discount until April 29, slashing the price down to $12.

In this delightful simulator, players take control of an Octopus pretending to be human. The game is a sequel to the free to play title Octodad and continues the story right after the first one.

Gameplay involves doing everyday activities, which may sound simple but are quite a challenge for an Octopus. Players control each set of tentacles with separate keys to navigate and interact with objects. In multiplayer mode, 4 players are given control of each tentacle on Octodad and that way they must complete the game’s objectives.

Creative director of Octodad: Deadliest Catch Kevin Zuhn explained how the project came to be in the first place and how the PlayStation 4 version will be better from the PC version, which was released earlier this year.

We started Octodad as a ragtag group of students, and it’s been a long and crazy ride getting our silly game on the PS4. This is our first foray into consoles, and we’re proud to be here. We released Octodad on PC back in January, and since then we’ve taken the time to improve it based on feedback from our players. The latter third of the game in particular has gone through some radical changes, with added challenges like deck swabbing, jig dancing, and new disguises to wear!

Octodad: Dadliest Catch released on the PC, Mac and Linux this January to positive reviews. The game has been modified to better suit the PlayStation 4 since release and will support PlayStation Move support, as well as local co-op mode.
