BRAY OF THE TENTACLE
Octodad’s comedy isn’t solely physical in nature, with some smart writing tickling the funny bone when you aren’t laying waste to your surroundings. Your wife’s blissful ignorance of her partner’s true nature is regularly played for laughs, while family members and NPCs offer up pithy quips as you clumsily go about your duties. The grocery store level is packed with in-jokes. There’s Total Biscuits, Pewdie Pie and Tiny & Big’s Diapers, plus a two-for-one crockery deal marvellously dubbed Stanley’s Pair O’Bowls.
