Have a question?
Couldnt resist the elegant charm of Octodad and the very promising sequel he's to star in. I've got high hopes for this project, so give it all you've got guys! I'm certain the tears and sweat put into it will come out in the best possible way. Regards.
Thanks a lot, Rob. Spread the word far and wide!
Rooting for you guys the hard part comes now that the initial surge is over. But from the looks of it you should make it. I'll keep spreading the word and hope to see those numbers keep climbing.
Thank the Freelance Astronauts for us! They created one of our favorite "Let's Play" videos. And thank you for the support!
Heard about this from the Freelance Astronauts (http://freelanceastronauts.com/games.php…), and just had to throw my hat in. Good luck!
Henry- We hope to be able to fulfill the pre-orders through Steam, but it's unknown what all distribution channels we will actually go through when it's released. As far as the beta testing goes, it's both! It would be done in the late stages of development, so that you're playing more for fun-testing rather than bug-searching.
Hairball- Shipping is included in all of the pledges!

Will there be an additional fee for shipping if I get a t-shirt?
Just like to ask a couple of questions. Firstly, with the pre-order, would it be able to get the steam version your planning to do, or will it just be a straight download of the game as itself. Secondly, with the early beta testing, will you actually want us to give feedback of what we think and report any bugs, or will it just be like an early demo to tantalise us?
We would honestly love to go Glenn, but it mostly depends on if we succeed in this Kickstarter or not. We definitely have some things we could show off and I know we'd love to rent a booth, but we need the support from fans to do so. It's looking good right now and we're really glad everyone is being as supportive as they have been. Thanks for your support and lookout for when our prizes update because there may be some new things that might interest you more than our current offerings. Best wishes.
So happy to support this game, considering bumping up my pledge but it'll have to wait until my next pay check. Any chance you guys will be at PAX Prime this year?
Brian - Yes, T-shirt sizes will be sorted out after the KickStarter ends. Thanks for your support!
Donated 35. That t-shirt looks too awesome to pass up. We will have the option to pick out size right?
There was nothing funnier then trying to put cups and plates in the sink and accidently smashing the kitchen up like Kenan & Kel. I Donated 35 Squid (bit of english humour there).
Keep up the good work!
Happy to support Octodad 2! If possible, could I please have a plushy instead of a poster? Thanks and good luck!
That's good to hear Steve! Luckily a lot of the new stuff in the trailer is also a work in progress. Things will be even better for the actual game. Thanks for the donation!
Pledged $10. This is all round a selfish donation, partly because it makes a game I really want to play a reality, and partly because it is essentially a pre order. :3 You can thank Notch (and of course yourselves for making such an awesome game) for that $10, since he tweeted about this (which is how I discovered the first one too :D). Was it him that donated $1000? xD
Also, my only criticism for the first game was the spider bit. The sudden reliance on precision felt out of place in a game like Octodad. Good luck with the second game anyway, everything in the trailer so far looks promising :)
I sent you guys $100. Thanks for the first game and good luck on the new one!
Donated just 5, would have donated more but I spent a boatload of money on the Steam Summer Sale... I'll raise my donation if I really have to - but it looks like you'll be okay.
We all really appreciate everyone's support for us and the game! It's amazing what everyone has accomplished in less than a day's time. Keep it up everyone! We'll be updating the page with FAQ information soon.
I still have the original installed; Nothing is more therapeutic than struggling to be an octopus with an uncompromising and problematic lifestyle then going back to reality where where life seems oh so easy in comparison. A sequel would be very welcome.
Great to see this happening. The original game was one of the most original, fun and hilarious games I've played.
So pleased to see this up on the go. I remember playing the original when it was featured up on indiegames.com, and yet again they've pointed me over to the project. So you guys owe them or something, at least for my pledge anyway.
