‘Octodad: Dadliest Catch’ is a Game About Being a Totally Normal Father, Coming to Mobile This October

One of the more prominent indie game characters over the past couple years or so has been Octodad, the eponymous protagonist of Octodad: Dadliest Catch, a game about a normal human father of two that is totally not actually an octopus in disguise, no. Octodad has made cameos in various games, and has made it out on to desktop, PS4, and Xbox One. But what about mobile? Well, it looks like that’s exactly what the developers at Chicago-based Young Horses are doing, as they teased the game on Twitter earlier today:

Interestingly, a mobile version seemed well in the cards as the game on PC supported touchscreen controls, particularly as one of the developers actually was testing the game out on a Surface Pro. One of the developers explains how the controls for the game worked at launch, though obviously some tweaks could be inbound. Considering that Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a game full of wacky moments and goofy physics, any touchscreen inaccuracy should lead to more wacky hijinks. Not that you would have any issues with doing your fatherly duties, because you are a normal human father and not an octopus disguised as a human. That’s just preposterous. Unless this is all a giant ruse, you’ll get to be a dad from anywhere you want starting this October.
