Story & Themes
You play as Octodad, a loving father and husband who also happens to be an octopus. Terrified of what your wife and children would think if they discovered your true secret, you lead a double life, trying as hard as you can never to reveal the truth.
The tasks you must accomplish in the game would be simple for an ordinary human: things like picking up your bowtie or walking down the hall. But for Octodad, even simple tasks are incredibly arduous. Controlling Octodad's numerous wiggly limbs is both frustrating and hilarious, and the more you mess up, the more others become suspicious of your true nature. In co-op mode, different players control different limbs and attempt to work together to complete these tasks.
Unfortunately for Octodad, a malicious chef is onto his secret identity, and is dedicated to revealing the truth. The chef captures Octodad and reveals his true identity to his family. However they continue to love him, and Octodad ends the game by forgiving the chef and embracing his family.
