Game Info Quote : The authentic Octopus City simulation, the simulation resembles the adventure games of yore, immersing players in a fascinating setting filled with unusual characters.

Kaf has been experiencing bizarre dreams about a world populated by twisted creatures. To help the inhabitants of his dreams, he must learn more about the people of the city and explore the underside of the towering metropolis. Along the way he becomes entangled in a conspiracy with far-reaching implications for Octopus City.

Planned Features
  • An authentic Octopus City simulation offering nothing but the most lovely tentacles ever conceived; wonderful pixel art and animations bring the city to life with the help of a diverse soundtrack.
  • Learn more about the city's dark history and its corrupt inhabitants in a non-linear main story.
  • Strange dreams to explore, each with its unique story and presentation.
  • Exciting things are always happening in Octopus City. Each NPC has his or her personality, relationships, and daily schedule.
  • More tentacles than the competition. You won't be disappointed like that one game that had the word Tentacle in its title but featured only two of them.
  • Learn exciting abilities such as: performing a spin dash, cutting dead tentacles, interpretive dancing, and dumpster diving.
  • An open world experience offering a lot of flexibility in the order of attempting the main story quests. There are several ways to complete each quest and your choices have mysterious effects. 
  • A dialogue system built around acquiring knowledge and managing stress.
  • Absolutely DRM-free. You will be able to change Kaf's sprite into Sora from Kingdom Hearts or replace the OST with your favorite Hall & Oats album.
