Thank Goodness: Octodad Sequel on PS4 Uses PS Move Motion Controls

I don't always enjoy motion controls, but if there's one game that I feel shouldn't be without them, it's the one where you control a wildly flailing octopus masquerading as a human husband and father of two.

Young Horses COO Kevin Geisler confirmed on the PlayStation Blog this weekend that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will indeed support the PlayStation Move controller on PS4. He said motion control is something they've wanted to add to the game for some time.

"You, too, can flail your arms like an octopus," he wrote. "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."

By holding down different buttons, you can use a single Move controller to control Octodad's various leg- and arm-tentacles. And naturally traditional controls using the DualShock 4 will still be an option. Octodad: Dadliest Catch is due out next year.
