Octodad: Dadliest Catch
March 29, 2013 - PTibz

Remember the shirt we brought to PAX East with us just last week? Now it's available to buy online through Level Up Studios! Men's and Women's sizes are available. We get a nice portion of the profits from these sales and so each shirt purchased is further helping support the development of the game.

We're exhibiting at PAX East next week, March 22nd-24th! We'll be at booth 781 as part of the Indie MEGABOOTH[indiemegabooth.com] and we'll have the game with us for everyone to play in a few different flavors.

Also we have some new merch to let loose on the world:

These puppies will be sold at the Level Up Studios/Team Meat booth 178, but I'm sure we'll have a couple at our booth too. If all goes well they'll also be available online later.

And then there are these rad buttons you can get just for giving the game a go:


The booth is going to be manned by 6 of the horses so feel free to come by and talk to us about the game.

If you want the full run down you can also read our blog post here[www.octodadgame.com].

Hope you're all doing well,
Young Horses

Original article on our website[www.octodadgame.com]

It’s getting towards the end of the year, making it a good time to get an overview of the progress we’ve made on the project thus far. We ended our Kickstarter August 10th, 2011, which really marked the beginning of development, having spent the previous months kicking around what could be done with Octodad.



To give you an overview of accomplishments thus far:

Summer 2011

  • Kickstarter Planning, Success & Award Fulfillment.
  • Built a new editor for level creation.
  • Reworked the Octodad model and controls.
Fall 2011
  • Prototyped new gameplay mechanics unexplored from Octodad 1.
  • Began prototyping the Church level as our intro and tutorial to the game.
  • Showed off Octodad at MineCon and Fantastic Arcade.
Winter 2011
  • Created our first teaser trailer.
  • Settled on the story outline and level progression of the game.
  • Moved on from our first polished level (Church) while prototyping aquarium-type levels.
Spring 2012
  • Worked on the House and Grocery Store levels.
  • Finished creating the rest of the family character models.
Summer 2012
  • Blocked out additional Aquarium levels and flashback levels.
  • Continued iterating on Aquarium level blockouts.
  • Began our Steam Greenlight campaign.
Fall 2012
  • Finished up the House level and entered final stages of Grocery Store level.
  • Showed off the game at PAX Prime.
  • Succeeded in being Greenlit through Steam.
If we put our progress in terms of level content creation we get this sort of chart:



So about where are we in the project? The consensus seems that we’re probably around 40-50%. A large portion of the prior work was iterating on new ideas, testing them out, and building up our tech. Not to mention, we ended up tackling some of the more content-heavy levels early on. We have high hopes of reusing some assets and other trickery to make the latter Aquarium levels quicker to create. Lastly, we’re still aiming for a high layer of polish with voice acting and story progression cutscenes for when we are ready to wrap up the project.

What’s been great about this project has been the evolution since we originally pitched it on Kickstarter. For something that we weren’t sure what we could do with it, we’ve come a long way towards delivering a solid, focused, and refreshing experience. Every time we have the opportunity to show it off to different people, we are always humbled by the great response!
