Father (Dis)Figure: Octodad - Dadliest Catch Out Jan 30th

The age of aquarium

It's been a long weight but the the besuited cephalopod is finally ready to raise a ruckus. And his family. The day that I take the brilliance of Octodad's premise for granted is the day that the new chief around these parts will demand that I hand in my RPS badge and gun. Sure, the gun only fires silly string but I'm fond of it, and I'll be damned before the authority sticks me behind a desk with a clipboard and a stress ball. Thankfully, it's impossible to take Octodad for granted and I my tentacles are all aquiver as I await the release of Dadliest Catch on Jan 30th. New trailer below.

Some of the earlier videos worried me a little - the focus on the aquarium and the minigames within it looked to take the focus away from Octodad's family situation. But here we see him trying to make coffee. We see him casually spending time in the garden. We see him riding a Segway as he attempts to buy some groceries.

Also of note is the theme tune, which is the best music ever written for a game.
