The release of the PlayStation 4 version of befuddling indie game Octodad: Dadliest Catch has been pushed back to April, developer Young Horses has confirmed.
It's been a slow start, but 2014's finally stepping up its pace with the first big release of the year. It's stepping somewhat clumsily, though, and making all sorts of messy noise in the process. Yes, Octodad's finally here! If you're not fully up to speed, you can have a read of Chris's preview from last year's EGX. If you're not up to speed and also pressed for time I can sum it up for you: it's a QWOP 'em-up in which you play an octopus trying desperately to fit in to everyday human life.
I've got to mow the lawn. This is not, in theory, the toughest challenge I've ever faced. I just need to get the lawnmower out of the shed, and push it over some rather obviously highlighted tufts of grass. It's less easy, however, when you're an octopus in a suit, masquerading as a suburban dad.
Marshalling your undulating, boneless tentacles to open the shed door is a trial in itself, let alone extracting the mower and directing it safely along the ground without smacking your sweetly oblivious wife in the face with it. That's the joke, and gameplay, of Octodad: Dadliest Catch in one simple nutshell: ordinary tasks made hilarious by virtue of your barely-controllable tentacles.
It's a conceit that puts the game in the same bracket as other interactive slapstick comedies such as QWOP, Incredipede and Surgeon Simulator, but Octodad is never as punishingly difficult as those games. It takes some practice, but Octodad's seemingly random flailings can actually be directed with a reasonable degree of accuracy most of the time.
Octodad: The Dadliest Catch will have local co-op for up to four people, each controlling one set of the octopus' suckered limbs.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch launches on PC, Mac and Linux on 30th January, developer Young Horses has announced.
Then it'll launch via Steam, Humble and GOG.
It's down as "coming soon" to PlayStation 4 in the launch trailer, below, but on Twitter Young Horses said the goal is to release on Sony's console in March.
Do you remember your wedding day? I certainly remember mine: the broken window, the cake trampled underfoot, the joy on my wife's face when I threw that huge gold ring over her wrist, like a hoop landing on a weighted bottle at a Coney Island concession.
The PlayStation 4 will rekindle the diversity of games last seen during the PSone era, Sony has said.
