Dear old Octodad has got into a few scrapes and scraps himself, and his troubles aren’t quite over yet. Creators Young Horses are making new adventures in wonky physics for Octodad: Dadliest Catch, planning to release them this summer as free DLC. The pack’s name: Dad Shorts.

The Dad Shorts levels will be standalone stories and therefore longer than regular Octodad misadventures, Young Horses say. The Shorts announced so far are Octodad’s first date with his wife-to-be, which I’m sure won’t go so badly it changes history and erases his life and family, and another based upon stories his kids make up about him being a nurse.
