You should give it a try

This was definitely a good experience.
- Looks great, very colorful and smooth animation as octodad wiggles around.
- Good voice acting and funny dialog. Alot of indie game references as well that I found amusing.
- Fun game play. Frustrating is the intention, just have fun with it.
- Short. I beat it in less than 2 hours. I will go back and try to beat the challengedread more times on each level, as well as find all of the hidden neck ties. But if you aren't into getting extras, this game will be done in about 2 hours.
- Near the end of the game there is a section where you cannot be seen by people at all. One part in particular was poorly designed. Overall the gameplay had few flaws though.
The original octodad game is available for download for free. Try that if you just want an idea of the gameplay. I would recommend getting this game though, it's very well done.

Hillariously Hard

Octodad is a fun little experience where you try to act like a human using awkward controls and real physics. You get tangled up, stick to objects and get yourself into some genuinely funny experiences just trying to get through each chapter.
If you want to have a good laugh with a small group of friends, this is a game to pick up.

Really funny game.

-Doing simple tasks like chopping woods or mowing lawner is much more funnier than in real life.
- There is a local coop. Your friends can control legs or arms.
- Xbox controller support. Did not try just saw in settings.
- Funny lines from bystanders when you cannot properly control your character.
- Stylish graphic with AA and physics.
- Nice voice acting of your main more :D
- Crazy but simple story.
- There are hidden ties as achievement.
- Funny intro song. It is in trailer
Better to play with friends.
