DePaul student-crafted game “Octodad” makes a splash

4 Jan

DePaul’s Gaming Development program has received high praise for it’s 3D adventure game “Octodad,” a computer game developed by a team of 19 DePaul students in less than six months. The game has been selected as a Top 100 Finalist in the Indie of the Year Awards, and hailed as one of the best indie PC games by IndieGames.com.

Users play as Octodad, an octopus pretending to be human who must perform fatherly tasks without revealing his octopus nature to a wife and kids. You can even download “Octodad” and play for free!

We here at Demon Tracks wish the students the best of luck as the game goes on to compete at the 2011 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
