Seems a little sketchy. It wants me to give it permission to change things on my harddrive?! No thanks.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
(This is the original free student project. The fully complete Octodad: Dadliest Catch can be purchased here.)
Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family.
The player controls Octodad like a marionette, dragging his arms and legs around while his body flops along. The player’s goals are often simple household chores made difficult and interesting by the flailing, tenuous control they have over Octodad’s body.
Being an octopus also has its strengths. Octodad can slip through tight spaces, grab objects with his suckers, and knock things around with tremendous strength. But if the player does things too out-of-the-ordinary, Octodad’s family will grow suspicious and realize what he really is. If they do, it’s game over for Octodad!

It needs to change things on your hard drive to install the game you moron
First of all, why would it need to change anything? Second, that's rude. Just because I'm not a computer geek does not mean you get to call me a moron. If I started asking you a bunch of things about music or medicine I bet you wouldn't know much about that. If you want anyone to take you seriously, be nice to them. You could just answer nicely and explain or just leave it alone.
if it doesn't change anything then how is it meant to install also I know tons about music and medicine
Alright so tell me what ketoacidosis is and how you treat it? Without googling it thank you very much.
well.... most programs you download have to ask permission to change things on your harddrive, like google chrome and stuff. It's to install the program. I don't exactly trust this download to the fullest, but you should only be skeptical of installations when you have no clue where they came from. Or if they have sketchy file names like "Setup.exe." Most of the time your antivirus will catch these before you give it permission.
A lot of applications on this website seem sketchy, as they do require you to authorize them on some permission. However, if you're looking to actually run the applications, then you may have to take this risk. Octodad isn't that sketchy though, in my opinion. He does look really crusty though.
I can't run it on my pc.
It looks a little bit creepy, but it's a great game!
so when i click play the game just crashes... if you were wondering i have a gtx 1050 and 8 gb of ram and idk why it just crashes
would u consider making a 64-bit version
Just as I was musing upon Google's lackluster advertising for Fatherhood, this came up. Thank you for keeping the Tradition Alive.
Happy Father's Day.
Subliminal Mind Games.
Post-Scriptum: I wonder if he tells good jokes.
Ok Its Fake
If you done your research its actually not. This is the ORIGINAL when the Creator was still a student. He then released the original project from back in his student days.
hahaha this is so annoying but so fun to play! :)
the hand movements really irritated me... :D
Very good game, im late but still !
Octodad is a must play game if you wanna alot of fun. Not only is the controll unique in itself. But the game has a good story behind it. This is the funniest student project I ever played and they improved so much on everything later for the game Octodad: Dadliest Catch.
The best part is that this student project is still free so all of us can enjoy it. Definitely a game everyone should try.
I have played the sequal on my Wii-U, but time to rage with harder controls on the Macbook Pro.
Touch controls work on the touchpad. :)
I wanted to play through this before i played through octodad deadliest catch but i am stuck on the end :(
Having trouble climbing the ladder?
Happy to see this here! I thought this was a paid game (If it was I'd purchase it, iiif I had the means). So this makes a part of me happy. Thank you :)
