Session Name:

There and Dad Again - The Octodad: Dadliest Catch Postmortem


After the surprise success of their student game Octodad, a group of recent college graduates were crazy enough to try to make a commercial sequel. Three years later, Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the first release from independent studio Young Horses and has since grossed enough to fund a seven-person team full-time. Join Phil Tibitoski and John Murphy as they discuss the methods they've used to create a successful [joke] game, work better as a team, and learn to love again.
