Octodad: Dadliest Catch Dev Talks About "PS4, Story, Gameplay Length, Xbox One Version And More"

Gamepur: We recently got in touch with Phil Tibitoski, President & Community Manager of YoungHorses, the developer behind upcoming indie game for PS4, "Octodad: Dadliest Catch".

Phil Tibitoski talked with us about Octodad: Dadliest Catch Story, Gameplay Length, Xbox One Version and whether or not take advantage of most talked about PS4 features, "DualShock 4's Touchpad, Lightbar and Cloud Computing"?.

The story is too old to be commented.

I may download this game.

And it's great that they talk about adventeges of PS4.

Anyways just edited not ready for trouble.

"And now they said they would like it for the Xbox One"

I know.

And now they said they would like it for the Xbox One.

Title is a little misleading.

MasterCornholio1737d ago

Only if Microsoft allows them.

Read the article its not coming yet but it probably will.

Regardless it won't be available at launch for the Xbox One.

I'm afraid to tell you that if this doesn't launch on Xbone the same day as PS4, Microsoft will make it very difficult for them to bring it to their console.
A console that will have nowhere near the user base its predecessor had might I add.

Mystogan1737d ago

I don't care if this comes to the Xbox or not. This game looks really stupid.

None of the consoles will have nowhere near its predecessors user base. You think all those 70 million users are instantly going to upgrade to PS4?

Dumbest comment I have read today.

If MS still play by their rules it could bite them in the arse. It's not treating developers with respect and a little bit snobby.

It's a case of the big guy pushing the little guy around just because they are bigger. Hopefully they change their tact.

kgeisler1737d ago


That used to be the case, but Microsoft's recent indie initiative is not severely discounting PSN games anymore.

Hicken1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

What's misleading?

maniacmayhem1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

A little misleading is that there is no Xbox One version. The developers only say they would like to bring it to Xbox One and that's all.

That link is from 2011, you really think that MS would deny a title just because it has appeared on PSN first.

the Warframe developers have already went and said that because of MS's policy changes they are looking to bring the title to X1.

There is also a few timed indie exclusives for sony that will be released for X1 later.

Hicken1737d ago

But there is no XB1 version, so how is it a misleading title? Wanting to make a copy of the game for a certain platform is different than there actually being a version in existence.

"I think the fanboys won't bash Octodad."

I truly think no one will care honestly.

This games look okay but nothing any fanboy will get worked up over and have a 300 comment, on fire discussion about.

MasterCornholio1737d ago

"The transition to PS4 was a smooth one for Octodad. It took about 1 month to do and only 1 of our programmers worked on it part-time."

Dang that's cool.

hell of a lot of ppl have moaned about this game looking at it .well all i can say is day 1 for me

strickers1737d ago

I've played this. Fantastic , if you have any imagination or intelligence. I'm sure it's shit, if you lack any ability to try things that are different and original.
It's a game. I love the fact so many games are judged by video. Idiots.

Mystogan1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

I played it, its f**king stupid, that's what it is. Its only getting praise here because its PS4 exclusive. I'm sure it would get shat on if it was Xbox exclusive. This actually made it into my list of worst games I ever played. its a small list. But it definitely belongs in there.

strickers1736d ago

Utter rubbish. I said you had to be open minded and possess imagination. Go back to the average. It's a PC game too.
I'm guessing you were poor at it, it required finesse.
People like you are made for XBox.

mhunterjr1737d ago

This game looks strangely fun. Not a system seller or anything, but its something I'd like to try. I think I'll go download the pc version tonight.
