Extract:

Who’s that man with the three-piece suit?

Makin’ a doll with a log and fruit,

Who’s that man with the eight strong legs?

Tried to make me breakfast but he broke my eggs!

Octodad – nobody suspects a thing…

(First things first, the suit is only a two-piece. That octopus is not wearing a waistcoat.)

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the second game from Young Horses, Inc, an independent company formed by students from DePaul University, and is a sequel to the freeware simply known as Octodad. The game’s plot is centred around a man who is trying to raise his family, all the while hiding that he is, in fact, an octopus. His nemesis is a sushi chef trying to reveal his secret so that Octodad can be cooked.

Sounding a bit fishy? (Apologies for the pun.) Well, it gets better.
