Octodad: Dadliest Catch adds PlayStation Move support

If Octodad movements still feel a little too conventional for controller users, Young Horses wants to introduce motion control to the equation, announcing PS Move support for the upcoming Dadliest Catch.

Octodad is already quite a handful to control, but developer Young Horses is offering a new way to play with Octodad, adding PlayStation Move support to Dadliest Catch.

"We've been itching to do motion controls for a while now," Young Horses' Geisler said. "Since Octodad is a game about wiggling your tentacles in 3D space, involving the player's body has always seemed like a perfect fit. Controlling Octodad's limbs 1-to-1 feels natural, and luckily doesn't dampen his wacky movements."

According to the PlayStation.Blog, a single Move controller is used, with the front Move button used for the right leg and the back trigger for the left one. Waving the controller will move Octodad, as well as direct his arm or attach his suckers to objects.

The PS4 version is set to arrive by the end of 2013.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
