The unique gameplay presented in this indie title and light hearted but funny hummor related to the physics of Octo Dad make this an ingenious indie title that for me is truely unique title to anything atleast i have ever played looking forward to number 2
This game is amazingly fun. A bit short, but the premise is hilarious, and so is the gameplay. The visuals could use some work, but for the most part, they are very good, sort of cartoon-esque. One of the best platformers I've played in a while. I'm really looking forward to updates.
