Octodad: Dadliest Catch was only living a deceptive lie as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive. The truth is that developer Young Horses was just biding its time while planning to conquer the Xbox One as well. The time has finally come for an invasion, because the popular indie hit will be released on Microsoft’s console this summer.
Young Horses describes the game to its new audience:
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is coming to Xbox One. It’s is a game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about his life. Octodad’s existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family.
The game will run at true 1080p, and this version will come with the two free “Shorts” DLC packs. Though, those shorts also came out for free on the PC and PlayStation 4. The game also supports local co-op for 2 to 4 players in which each person controls a different one of Octodad’s tentacles.
No release date yet, but be sure to keep and eye out for Octodad: Dadliest Catch and its especially endearing and sweet protagonist this summer on the Xbox One.
