Octodad is a rather original game both in art/story and in gameplay made by some students at the De Paul University, Chicago. Octodad is an octopus, but it is also a loving husband and father of two. Its family does not know that it is an octopus, though, and your goal is to keep it that way. How? Easy, by doing what a dad does, playing with the kids and helping with the house, while looking for the occasional monster in the closet and finding time for the occasional romantic dinner.

However, it is not easy for an octopus to pass for a human and the game play in this game is an accurate reflection of this. Each "leg tentacle" is operated with each mouse button, push the button and move the mouse to move the tentacle accordingly. With the space bar the focus changes to the "right hand tentacle", that is operated horizontally by moving the mouse and vertically by holding right button and moving the mouse. Yes, it is as complicated as it sounds.
