Today is Father’s Day and in honor of father figures everywhere, we have complied a list of the most dad-centric indie games around.
by Young Horses, Inc.
Octodad was one of the earliest Dad themed games, when it was released as freeware in 2010 (it’s still available, for free, today).
Three years later, its sequel Octodad: Dadliest Catch took the gaming world by storm. In this series, you play as a dad, who also happens to be an octopus. The object is to make it through a series of tasks without letting on that you’re not exactly human.

In this fast paced arcade game, you’re a kid trying to find the right dad while avoiding accidentally showering with one of the other dads (that would be awkward).

Dad by the Sword
