Octodad Will Feature Multiplayer

| January 29, 2014

The upcoming PlayStation 4 title, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, is now confirmed to have 4-player local co-op.

The news came way of Young Horses producer Kevin Geisler, who confirmed the news on Twitter. In an interview with Polygon, president Phil Tibitoski said ” the game features a four-player Roulette mode. In this mode, every time an objective is completed, the limbs each player controls will be randomly switched without indicating who is controlling what. For example, a player using the right leg could suddenly be controlling the left arm, and players will need to figure out for themselves who is controlling what. This mode can be toggled on and off.”

Tibitoski also mentioned another mode in which characters each control one set of limbs.

Confirmed for both PC and PS4, Dadliest Catch follows the story of an octopus disguised as a human, who has evaded the secret service for quite awhile now. He also has a wife and kid to boot (don’t know exactly how that worked).

As Octodad, players must complete mundane tasks (like mowing the lawn), all the while avoiding any suspicion. While this may sound easy, the game comes fit with “octopus physics”, causing Octodad to move around in a crazy manner.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be out tomorrow on PC, Mac, Linux. While no set date has been made for the PS4 release, Young Horses are hoping for a March release. As for Xbox One, you can check out our interview with Geisler.
