Octodad Dadliest Catch

The release schedule for the PlayStation 4 may be more parched than the Sahara desert, but indie outfit Young Horses is aiming to rehydrate your optimism for the next generation system. In an interview with Polygon, the studio has confirmed that Octodad: Dadliest Catch – the bizarre low-budget adventure game that sees you attempting to deceive your family of your aquatic origins – is set to bumble onto Sony’s new super machine sometime in March.

The title’s due out on 30th January on PC and Mac, so the hotly anticipated console release won’t be too far behind. “We still need to work on Trophies and some things like that a bit,” said president Phil Tibitoski. “Though it's more about just giving us some more room to make sure that we can get it done. We don't want to make any hasty announcements.”

In order to celebrate the imminent arrival, the company has washed up a new trailer showing some unseen sequences from the game. In one section, the put upon cephalopod is taken on a family excursion to the local aquarium – but after a round of air hockey or two, the intrepid invertebrate does a disappearing act. Where could the outgoing octopus have got to? Plunge into the comments section with your thoughts.
