Octodad: Dadliest Catch flops onto PlayStation 4 next week

Posted on April 18, 2014 AT 01:00pm

Young Horses’ QWOP-y cephalopod ‘’stealth’’ game Octodad: Dadliest Catch will finally arrive on PlayStation 4 next week, the developer announced today.

“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,” creative director Kevin Zuhn wrote in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “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!”

The PlayStation 4 version will also support additional controller configurations, namely ones that support PlayStation Move and “double PlayStation Moves” (one glowing wand in each hand).

Octadad: Dadliest Catch will be available for $14.99 when it launches next week (presumably April 22, though Zuhn did not mention a specific date). PlayStation Plus subscribers can grab the four-limbed family game for a 20 percent discount through April 29, knocking its price tag down to $11.99.
