Octodad Dadliest Catch Free Download Unfitgirl Octodad: Dadliest Catch is very much my kind of game. The central conceit of an octopus masquerading as a human is pure absurdist genius, and a premise worthy of even the most coked-up ‘80s sitcom producer. And as the name suggests, Octodad is married with children, and must maintain the façade of being a regular Joe even at home. It’s a great set-up for genuinely amusing gameplay and a surprisingly sweet story. Dadliest Catch doesn’t give any context initially, instead dropping us straight into Octodad’s wedding day. It’s a deliberately bizarre place to start, and a good training ground for the controls. Each one of Octodad’s tentacle legs is controlled independently; your body flopping about as you lurch drunkenly around, while objects can be picked up with a single, snaking arm. It’s actually quite intuitive, and you’ll have your tux on and attempt a nonchalant walk down the aisle in no time. Unlike other games from a similar lineage, such as QWOP or Surgeon Simulator 2013, Octodad’s humour isn’t derived from an arcane difficulty or overly elaborate controls, but from physical comedy, pure and simple. It’s just innately funny controlling Octodad as he staggers and stumbles. If John Cleese were an invertebrate, his silly walk would look something like this. Dadliest Catch revels in the inherent humour of its concept, littering areas with physics objects to get caught on or to clamber up, or liberally applying that slapstick staple – the banana peel – to its environments.

Octodad is a lovable lead character, too. His every burble is translated to hilarious effect during conversations with his family, or when he’s steeling himself to action, and it’s complemented by great sound work. Think Futurama’s Zoidberg and you’d be on the right track. I burst out laughing when he started burbling a ditty to himself at one point. A side effect of the focus on comedy, however, is that Dadliest Catch is just not that hard; Octodad is far happier being the goofy, easy-going friend that makes you laugh than it is trying to be your demanding drill sergeant who delights in testing your will to go on. That’s fine, of course; I’d prefer to be charmed than frustrated, but it’ll only take a couple of hours to play through the story – even with the new objectives that have been added for PS4 since the initial PC release. What is here is great, however. There’s plenty of variety in objectives, and no one idea outstays its welcome. You’re whisked from mowing the lawn and making coffee at home to climbing through freezer cabinets and shopping for soda in a supermarket, and on to a terrifying trip to the aquarium, where posters featuring a stern-faced scientist and the text “Our biologists know a fish when they see one” threaten to expose our hero as the cephalopod in disguise that he is. Each level presents its own riffs on the core gameplay. Climbing an obstacle course in the aquarium is a highlight, with ladders, bridges, and zip-lines, but it’s just one location within the complex.
Gather family members
Elsewhere, there are mini-games to test your tentacle-eye coordination, ventilation shafts to thread through, and the answer to the age-old question: “Can an octopus posing as a human climb an escalator that’s determined to go down as quickly as possible?” And the follow-up question: “Can an octopus disguised as a human in a hammerhead shark outfit fool eagle-eyed biologists?” It’s charming and funny, and the PS4 version builds atop the PC original, tweaking level layouts and adding in new objectives to help flesh out some of the leaner missions towards the end of the game. The flashback sequence Sea Legs, for instance, has been bulked out considerably with six new objectives. None of them feel in any way integral to the level, but that’s not the point. Sometimes swabbing the deck aboard a violently rocking ship or doing a jig to prove your sea credentials are their own reward. The mission Silent But Dadly is perhaps the most altered, with a couple of sequences that play quite differently on PS4 compared to PC. The result is a level with more gameplay – and more chaos – but it’s arguable whether the redux is actually superior to the original. Thankfully both versions are good fun. It’s great to see Young Horses revisiting Dadliest Catch in such a significant way before releasing it on PS4, but I can’t help but think the team is still missing the most obvious way to improve the game as a whole. More content is appreciated, but what I’d like to see is different content, such as optional challenges that really ramp up the difficulty and take the gameplay to its logical conclusion. The Evil Within
Octodad as a whole isn’t meant to be hard, which is why – even with some extra objectives – you can breeze through it so quickly, so why not add in some crazy scenarios that completionists can get stuck into once they’ve finished the story? As it stands, there are ties hidden in each level for players to seek out, plus the option to play through the game controlling Octodad cooperatively with up to three friends, which is an inspired inclusion. Those of you that own Move controllers and a PS4 camera can also test out the Move functionality, which is reasonable enough. Moving Octodad’s snaking arm about with the Move is certainly a good fit, and this is combined with the standard control scheme of using twin analogue sticks and triggers to walk, so it’s not a difficult adjustment. Some challenges are made significantly harder with the Move, but it’s fun to play around with nonetheless. One last thing that’s worth noting – Dadliest Catch doesn’t always feel hugely optimised for PS4. It runs well for the most part, but I definitely noticed the odd frame rate drops – most noticeably in the aforementioned Sea Legs mission. Octodad is a doting father and loving husband who mows the lawn, does the family’s grocery shopping, and cooks the kids’ dinners. He’s also an octopus. That’s the actually pretty funny premise behind Dadliest Catch, a physics playground and sort-of-puzzle game by new indie studio Young Horses, Inc.
Create your own ridiculous levels
The joke is that even though he’s literally an octopus in a suit, flopping around clumsily and knocking things over, no one ever acknowledges it. To his inexplicably human family, and everyone else, he’s just a regular guy. The first two levels are brilliant. Your tasks are mundane – weed the garden, grill burgers on the barbecue, pour your daughter a glass of milk, make coffee – but it doesn’t matter, because you’re an octopus. You control four of Octodad’s limbs independently, which are ostensibly his arms and legs. Something as simple as opening the fridge, picking up the milk, carrying it into the living room, and pouring into the glass is rendered hilarious by his lack of a spine and wildly flailing appendages. Rooms are reduced to piles of rubble as you crash through them. This should have been the whole game. Domestic drudgery made funny by the presence of an ungainly cephalopod. But then, presumably under pressure to make it feel more like a ‘game’, the developers start giving you objectives: solving simple puzzles, completing infuriating mini-games, and even a few stealth sections. Yes, really. It’s not long before the laughter stops and the swearing begins, and the game goes from fun, slapstick comedy to maddening chore. It’s a shame, because those early moments, including a bit where Octodad has to ‘walk’ down the aisle at his wedding, are genuinely hilarious. The addition of ways to fail, like suspicious marine biologists that have to be avoided, or people getting suspicious if you smash the level up too much, feel unnecessary, and spoil the joke. The Forest
Trying to drag Octodad up an escalator going in the wrong direction, or climbing a stack of tumbling boxes, only adds to the torment. You can’t fault its originality, though. It’s a game bursting with colour and personality, although the chirpy music does begin to grate after a while. It’s hard not to love Octodad as he stumbles through life, and the levels are filled with cute references to indie games and developers. I always feel bad about giving games that try something new a hard time, but playing Octodad feels a bit like I’m being simultaneously told a joke and kicked in the nuts. I can’t help but think that there’s something dark beneath Octodad’s whimsy. The way he crashes around his house – falling into things, breaking his kids’ toys, leaving destruction in his wake – and the way his wife patiently smiles through it all. It could be that the whole game is, in fact, an allegory for alcoholism; a story about a dangerously drunken father and a family too frightened to confront him about his problem. Or maybe he’s just a fucking octopus. Originally starting out as a Windows freeware title made by a group of Delaware University students, the original Octodad made a splash on the indie scene back in 2010. Many of the group would go on to form developer Young Horses and make its sequel, subtitled ‘Dadliest Catch’, appearing first on PS4 and PC in 2014 and eventually making its way to other platforms including the Wii U in October 2015. ‘Octodad’ and its sequel won many a heart during development
An all-new adventure that explores
The game’s release however, was met with both praise and criticism in equal measure. After appearing on mobile devices last year, Octodad: Dadliest Catch now comes to the Switch. Marrying into a family that is completely oblivious to anything peculiar, you take on the role of husband and father in a typical suburban household. After the game’s introduction / tutorial segment that takes place on your wedding day, you soon settle down into your bog standard lifestyle performing mundane, routine tasks such as mowing the lawn, trips to the supermarket and trying to keep the kids occupied. This might be a good time to reiterate that you are, in fact, an octopus, as well as a father and husband. Don’t forget that, because it’s important. The antagonist, Chef Fujimoto, knows of this deception, and is out to expose our beloved hero to his family. The sitcom-like set up and writing, along with the decent voice acting and zany visual humour, is what gives the game an endearing quality. Balancing the absurd with the sincere, the ‘fish out of water’ (pardon the sort-of pun) storyline is objectively ridiculous, but it will be down to personal taste whether the player embraces the craziness and enjoys it. There is also a quirky innocence to how the family interacts and the tasks you have to perform – set pieces that involve reminiscing about dating and skits entertaining the children are especially heartfelt. While Octodad himself can’t speak as such, his thoughts and opinions (made up of gargles and such like) are conveyed by an array of witty ‘translation’ subtitles. The Jackbox Party Pack 5
While some tasks such as weeding the garden or making coffee might sound easy enough, performing these tasks in your octopine form is very far from straightforward, which is where Octodad starts to struggle for the player as well as the protagonist. Controlling your character is one of the most unique but also divisive aspects of Octodad. Although motion controls have been implemented in a previous console version of the game, they have been omitted for the Switch version. Operating each limb independently, you’ll use a combination of the left and right trigger to raise or lower your ‘legs’, the sticks to move your arms and R to grab / let go of highlighted objects. You’ll skulk, slide, weave and crash into your surroundings on a regular basis. The early stages of the game consist of fetch-based tasks and making it through a particular area, and there are also three hidden neckties to find. The continually updating mission structure will have you eventually expanding into more skill-based objectives, performing anything from winning a fairground-type minigame to stealthily evading scientists or making your way through an area without knocking anything over or arousing suspicion. Be wary though, because performing certain tasks badly will make a purple meter fill up, resulting in a game over. Whatever you are doing takes a varying degree of perseverance, coordination and patience in order to feel like you’ve reached any kind of proficiency.
It is understandable if not entirely excusable that the disorientation is the selling point – it is after all part of the slapstick humour and challenge. It is equally justified to suggest that it’s where the majority of the frustration with the game stems from. Any time that accuracy is required the game descends into a spiral of infuriating trial and error; it gets worse when you deviate from a flat surface. While the ladders and staircases you traverse aren’t complex in their architecture, they do require a degree of rhythm and persistence, and change depending on the camera angle. Something as simple as picking up a supermarket object while not getting the attention of a fellow customer is nowhere near as intuitive as it could be. There is one clever (if slightly obtuse) environmental ‘puzzle’ early on, but the game then seems to follow a familiar pattern of retrieving objects and making your way from checkpoint to checkpoint, rather than experimenting with more ways that Octodad’s form could be manipulated to perform varied tasks. The character model of Octodad himself also seems to judder slightly and the camera can behave erratically, especially in more confined spaces. There were a few instances where the character would get stuck to the point of having to restart from the last checkpoint. Reading the game’s flow regarding movement is certainly something that takes some getting used to, and there is a degree of inconsistency in the quality of the level design.
