After becoming finalists for the IGF student prize in 2011, developer Young Horses formed to build a new version of Octodad for a more public release. That game, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, has just released on PC, Mac, and Linux, and we hopped in to give it a try.

In today’s Test Chamber, Andrew Reiner and I explore one of the early levels of the game, helping Octodad start his day at home and complete some yard work. The resulting flailing and knocking over of objects gives a great idea of the both the laughs and frustrations inherent to this strange game.
