Octodad: Dadliest Catch is probably one of the most unique games you’ll ever play, and having previously been released on almost every other platform, Xbox One can now get a taste.
Most popularly played on PC, Octodad is also available on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita; it will release on Wii U later in the year.
The objective is to be a normal dad, even though you’re clearly an octopus, and not get attention drawn to yourself. Couple that with some slightly maddening controls (you have to control each tentacle independent of the others), and you’ve got a hit game.
Developer Young Horses announced that the title will come to Microsoft’s Xbox One console on Wednesday 26th of August. It’s currently priced at a $15, and that’s with the ‘Shorts’ DLC, which includes a whole bunch of new objectives to try out.
There’s also been talk of the possibility to have ‘alternate control schemes unique to Xbox One’ but that’s something that will be discussed by the developer at a later date.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch comes to the Xbox One via the self publishing digital games program by Microsoft. This gives you access to indie games like Goat Simulator and Cuphead on your console.
