Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad (a dapper octopus masquerading as a human) like a marionette, dragging his arms and legs around while his body flops along. The player’s goals are often simple household chores made difficult and interesting by the flailing, tenuous control they have over Octodad’s body.
Being an octopus also has its strengths. Octodad can slip through tight spaces, grab objects with his suckers, and knock things around with tremendous strength.
