Did you miss GamesBeat Summit 2021? Watch on-demand here! 

Have you played the first Octodad? No? It's a short and delightful little indie title, can be completed in an hour, and it can be found for free right here.

Beat it? Good. Now get ready for its Kickstarter funded sequel, Octodad 2: 

The sad news is that Octodad: Dadliest Catch doesn't release until 2013, a release window as wide and vast as the ocean from which Octodad originally sprang. If you simply can't wait for the sequel to the best undercover cephalopod simulator on the market, I suggest playing the original over and over while eating your favorite  ice cream.
