Octodad: Dadliest Catch Flails to PS4 Tuesday

Hello octopus fans, I’ve got great news! Octodad: Dadliest Catch is launching on PlayStation 4 next week!

For those of you unfamiliar with Octodad, he’s a normal everyday father with an adoring family, but he just so happens to be an octopus! Life for him is a neverending struggle to control his wobbly limbs and to conceal his cephalopod secret from his loved ones. In Dadliest Catch, Octodad and his family take a disastrous trip to the aquarium, putting him at odds with marine biologists, a manic sushi chef, and his wife’s ever rising suspicions…

We started Octodad as a ragtag group of students, and it’s been a long and crazy ride getting our silly game on the PS4. This is our first foray into consoles, and we’re proud to be here. We released Octodad on PC back in January, and since then we’ve taken the time to improve it based on feedback from our players. The latter third of the game in particular has gone through some radical changes, with added challenges like deck swabbing, jig dancing, and new disguises to wear!

The PS4 version also has support for new controller configurations like PlayStation Move, double PlayStation Moves, and our personal favorite, PlayStation Move plus Nav controller! Let’s not forget local co-op mode, where you and your friends each take control of one of Octodad’s limbs and collectively cause chaos!

Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be $14.99, discounted 20% off for PlayStation Plus users for the first week, making it $11.99 through April 29th.

Thanks for checking out Octodad, we hope you have fun!

    YES!! SO EXCITED

  • This game was one of the reasons I bought a PS4. Loved what I played of it at last years E3. Cannot wait!

  • Sonicfan11589

    By any chance, can u play with ONLY the Dualshock 4? I’m guessing it is more widely considered to enjoy the game more with the PS Move controller.

      It’ll probably be most enjoyable to people with the DualShock 4. I really like Move + Nav, because it’s not too strenuous to play (Joysticks/Triggers for legs, Move for 3D arm movement + grabbing).

  • thebledkid22

    I’ve been waiting for this game. Can’t wait to play it. So does the PS4 already have support for Move controllers or will that be in the future update? Wasn’t sure because they aren’t any games that support Move on PS4 yet.

      It already supports Move controllers as long as you have the camera too.

  • Another game to buy, solid!

  • Excellent news!

    Now if only we could get a release date for Sportsfriends…

  • PanTheMan16

    I’ve been looking forward to this game since it’s announcement. Day 1 buy for me. I’m surprised that we haven’t heard more about this game recently since it’s releasing on PS4 so soon. Better late than never though and a pleasant surprise for sure.

  • DaftStation

    Woohoo! :D

  • BearAntlers

    DAY 1

  • YES!!!! I have been anticipating this since it was announced to be on the platform…cannot wait for “daddy” to stumble his way into the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere.

  • snakeeyes211

    What kind of trophies are we looking at for the game?

  • The first excuse since Sports Champions 2 to charge up and play with my Move controllers

  • My 4 year old daughter asks me every week to buy this ever since I showed her the trailer many months ago. So glad it’s finally here next week.

  • What happen to the option of taking control of a friends game to help them through part of the game?

  • First day for sure, I can’t wait.

  • PS+ discount too, thanks!

  • @14 they have stated this feature is upcoming…I think they wanted to focus on sharing with the upcoming update first and pushed this a little…they have made good on most promises so far. The one I am most upset about was the abandonment of the “trophy room” in PS Home on PS3…I would love to go into a room and see all my trophies on the wall represented by ACTUAL trophies.

  • Okay, when I first heard of this game I thought it was really stupid sounding.

    I found it on a PS4 Demo many months ago and decided to take a look at it.

    I STILL found it totally stupid, couldn’t stop laughing at it while playing and of course it went to the top of the ‘Must get it when it comes out’ list. Its a silly casual game that I know my friends and I will have a lot of fun with. Looking forward to it :)

    Hopefully it’ll be a better received game review wise than the PC reviews. Either way, buying it.

  • One of the games that sold me on the PS4 at Pax before the system came out. I already have it on pc, but I may have to grab it again.

  • @12 I’ll give it to Sorcery as well. That game was pretty fun. A good way to use the Move tech in a 3d platformer-esque game.

  • Wasn’t this game suppose to be FREE for PS Plus users?

    • Phil Tibitoski
      Phil Tibitoski

      Nope. You might have it confused with the other games announced for PS+ Free at E3. (Outlast, Mercenary Kings, Don’t Starve)

  • MR-LoverMan-1982

    Thank u PlayStation cant wait for octodad this game look fun love the song also.

  • @21 that was never stated

  • Deadpoolian

    Yessss. This along with Second Son were my most anticipated games for PS4. Can’t wait to download it next week and it’s super awesome we get a Plus discount! Thanks! :D

  • CrusaderForever

    Really looking forward to this game! This looks NUTS! Seriously, this looks like a unique gaming experience. Hey Sony, if I paid you money could try to be horrible and offer zero good games like your competitor?! j/k! Sony is on FIRE and can do no wrong!! 7 million consoles sold through! FFXIVARR is drop dead amazing on the PS4! Vita Remote Play!!! What a great time to be a gamer!!!!

  • My girlfriend and I have been looking forward to this game since we played the demo at Gamestop a few months ago. I can’t wait to play the full release!

  • “Nobody suspects a thing!”

  • Very Excited for this.

  • Not shocked, Sony should rename the PS4 The “OUYA 2” Just Saying…

  • Every time I see this game I can’t help but laugh out loud. Can’t wait to try it with the move+ nav next week. Congrats guys!

  • @11 there are 20 bronze trophies; Probably the most fun I will ever have earning bronze.

  • Can’t wait to play this with Move.

    Giant Bomb Chicago Represent!

  • @God-Of-Lyf,

    YOu would be correct in stating that if this game was on android or iOS. Which it is not, PC only, PS4+PC soon. So maybe name it PS4C?

    Humor attempt, fail.

  • A demo is planned right? I hate buying games without trying them.

    • Kevin Geisler

      We have a demo available at a lot of store PS4 kiosks (Best Buy, Gamestop, etc.). I’m not sure we will do a downloadable demo since the requirements are much higher for submission but perhaps in the future.

  • T3DV0L70L1N4

    Awesome! And thanks for the PS+ launch discount!

  • BlueBl1zzard

    Nice! My friend and I are really looking forward to it. Also, thanks for the plus discount!

  • Yeah I’m copin’ this when it comes out.

  • Well so from the pc version this game has been fixed with all the problems that version had. Glad the developers went back in to straighten issues out and for that with the PS Plus discount I will get this now.

  • Awesome! Welcome to playstation guys and congratulations. I cant wait to play this game! By the way thanks for the PS+ discount thats awesome of you guys.

  • charleschannels

    Awesome! I’ve been watching some gameplay done by the one & only TheRadBrad on Youtube and it seems brilliant, funny & unique. A must buy for sure!

  • Seems to be a definite day one purchase for me. My brother got me into this game from a few guys he watches on YouTube. Hopefully get my brother, he’s usually pretty busy, to play this with me. Thanks for bringing this game to the PlayStation 4! :)

  • ColonelOCorn

    Wait, this means my kids will stop trying to play it at Target? And will want to play my PS4 instead of some Pokemon game? :)

    Can’t wait to check it out!!

  • livingwithoutyou

    Will we be able to publish and play custom maps?

  • sullivangamerz

    would it be possible to pre order on the PlayStation store so I will download and be ready when I want play.

  • YESSS FINALLY!!!! :D and a discount too!!! Man it’s awesome being a PlayStation owner and Plus subscriber! This is what pushed me to get a PS4 early. When my friend and I were playing the demo at our local gamestop, we had so much fun playing and laughing so hard, a crowd gathered and watched us play and laughed with us. It was great

  • younginflavor18

    Whenever I decide to purchase a PlayStation 4, Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be one of the few titles I’m considering to try out.

  • Ultimate_Atheist

    Can we please get a PS3 version? I’m waiting on the PS4 Slim before I make the’Big Leap’ to ‘Next Gen’ Consoles! (^_^)

  • RunOnTheRoof72

    So pumpeddd! Been thinking about this game ever since it was announced and couldn’t wait for it to be released! My only (possible) issue is that it may get boring after a while….I’m hoping not lol

  • @47 probably waiting for a while. the ps3 slim did not come out for 3 years.

  • This game did not appealed to me until now…great trailer.
