Octodad

Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodan nature a secret from his human family.

I was an artist on Octodad while a senior in college at DePaul University in Chicago, IL. It was an extracurricular project known as DGE2 (Depaul Game Expierience 2) where 18 students made a game to compete in the 2011 Independent Games Festival. There we became a Student Showcase Winner. My main Job was designing all of the characters, but I also helped in their creation and animation. I also modeled a few assets.
