Humble Indie Bundle 17: Lethal League, Nuclear Throne

Humble Bundles come every fortnight nowadays but the Humble Indie Bundle is still a rare treat, something a bit fancier than the rest - the flagship bundle. Numero diecisiete is now upon us (I know - diecisiete already! but it has been six years of HIBs), a pay-what-you-want bundle of games including Lethal League, The Beginner's Guide, Super Time Force Ultra, Lovers in a Dangerous…

Octodad Not Octodead, Shorts Out Next Week

If I was secretly any large animal, I expect it would be a bear. Not least for classic reasons but it also fits my desperate need to hibernate as we approach the winter months. The messy shedding. My giant claw like hands that destroy everything I touch. Octodad has none of these problems, of course. He's a finely controlled machine, a weapon of precision and has no…

Dadlier Than Ever: Octodad Free DLC Coming In Dad Shorts

They have a hard lot in life, Game Dads. They scarcely have time to get through the front door and step into their slippers before trouble comes calling and they need to kick in the teeth of some lout threatening their daughter/daughter figure. Poor chaps. Real dadding's like that too, Alec tells us. Dear old Octodad has got into a few scrapes and scraps himself,…

Octodad: Dadliest Catch review

Octodad: Dadliest Catch has been a long time in coming. We first spent a whopping zero (s)quid on the original  freeware version back in 2010, And Octodad 2, as it was known back in ye olde pre-Double-Fine-Adventure days, took Kickstarter by (relative) storm in 2011. So here we are in 2014, and the second coming of the heart-stealing, identity-thieving octo-man/myth/legend is upon us. But is…

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

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,…

Silence Puny Humans, For Octodad SPEAKS

Octodad's return is nearly upon us, and he's feeling downright dadly. He will not tolerate your frightened wails and muted mutterings. He does not care for your pitiful plights and strange obsessions with creepily young pop stars. He only wishes to... slip on banana peels and participate in an octopus-human marriage so adorable that I nearly forgot to be weirded out by it. Yeah, OK,…

Postal Dad: Stanliest Gnome – 21 New Games Greenlit

Everyone, it's OK. You can calm down now. Put away your finely honed rioting tools and carefully calibrated bludgeoning instruments. Octodad: Dadliest Catch, you see, finally got the Greenlight go-ahead to haphazardly fling itself in Steam's general direction. After flopping and flailing about in hilarious frustration for 30 or so minutes, it also managed to affix 20 other games to its tentacles - which it…

Nautical But Nice – Octodad: Dadliest Catch

I know what you're thinking. Not another game about grim men shooting each other in the future. However, Octodad: Dadliest Catch is actually the kickstarted sequel to Octodad, the tale of an octopus attempting to hide the tentacled truth of his being while living in suburbia with a wife and two children. There's a trailer now and some details on the plot, which involves a…
