Nobody suspected a thing, but Octodad: Dadliest Catch is coming to Xbox One this summer.

This release of Young Horses' incognito octopus sim will run in 1080p and supports up to four-player co-op wherein each player controls different tentacles. It also includes the game's two free "Shorts" add-ons. One of which covers Octodad's first date with his now-wife, Scarlet, while the other envisions a "what if" scenario in which our hero is a surgeon.

Eurogamer contributor Dan Whitehead found Octodad: Dadliest Catch "frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious." More intriguingly, he thought it was a "surprisingly sweet game with a genuine depth to its main character."

"We've all felt awkward and out of place at some point, or have some aspect of ourselves we keep hidden away for fear those we love will reject us. To its credit, and for all its cartoon silliness, Octodad doesn't treat that concept lightly," he stated in his Octodad: Dadliest Catch review.
