Getting all jiggly with Octodad

6 May

The video above shows some awesome animation and physics glitches from that Octodad game.

The game plays a bit like a combination of the hotel room destruction in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. But while The Metamorphosis is a story about the rigid nature of overcome family structures and the fragility of identity in the beginning of the 20th century in Europe, Octodad is the story about… how it’s still complicated… sometimes… you know, standing, walking, stuff like that.

On the game’s homepage (where you can download it for free) the developers wrote:

“Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His 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.”

I certainly know that feeling.

I really hope they can get Johnny Depp (and not Robin Williams) for the unavoidable Octodad: The Movie (start around 00:45).
