Octodad: Dadliest Catch

This is the professional indie sequel to Octodad, created by Young Horses Inc. Octodad: Dadliest Catch follows another of the octopus dad’s adventures as he and his family visit the local aquarium. Check out our launch trailer below!

I worked on Dadliest Catch as the Creative Director. My duties included level design, writing, art asset creation, and generally overseeing creative decisions.

I was the project lead on the 2011 IGF Student award-winning Octodad! Octodad is a game about a father who is secretly an octopus. He must complete menial chores to keep his family from realizing the truth as he works towards his secret agenda. You, the player must help him by dragging his wiggly feet and arms around like a ragdoll, without knocking down or breaking enough things to make Octodad’s family suspicious.

As project lead, it was my duty to oversee creative direction of the project, make final decisions on content, work with outside talent and advisors, and lend a hand to art and design whenever needed. I also wrote the game’s story and script, and created storyboards for the cutscenes.
