Young Horses commented via Twitter in terms of the release date for Octodad: Dadliest Catch on PS4 and that “April is the PS4 goal. There was never a definite date, or delay.” Even though it was targeted for March, at least it isn’t too far of a setback.
Young Horse’s post also continued about an Xbox One version “Also, considering Xbox One means we thought about it in our brains.” Follow up tweets reveal that it is just a thought and that “Thinking does not equal doing.”
Dadliest Catch is already out on PC if you want to not wait for the PS4 version.
Yes, if you thought that this game couldn’t get any crazier, Young Horses throws a curve ball. Announcing 4 player local co-op in Dadliest Catch allows 4 different players to control all of Octodad’s limbs separately (told apart by on-screen color matched to the light on the controllers light bar.) You can try the game seriously, or all of you can play Twister! The co-op mode is drop in/drop out at anytime on the game’s menu.
Also, to add to the hilarity, you can turn on a new mode in co-op called Roulette Mode. Whenever you complete an objective, the game will switch up who controls what limb of the body without showing the color coordination for the controller. This leaves you to trial and error which controller now controls which limb. These modes are available for all versions of the game.
Young Horses has announced that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will release for PC, Mac and Linux January 30th on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.
They also said that they are targeting a March 2014 release date on the PS4.
