According to Young Horses COO (and Octodad Producer/Programmer) Kevin Geisler, Octodad could find himself tripping onto PlayStation Vita sometime in the future.
It is no secret that the PlayStation brand has been nurturing a strong relationship with indie developers over recent years, which is especially noticeable by the sheer amount of independently developed titles slated to appear on the PlayStation 4. Among the large group of titles a few key names have emerged, one of them is the sequel to 2010’s oddball PC Game Octodad; humorously titled Octodad: Dadliest Catch.
Scheduled for a 2013 Octodad: Deadliest Catch will task players to keep Octodad’s identity a secret as he tries to prove his humanity to his doubting family, all while keeping his Molluska nature under wraps. It’s a given that the game has a strange premise, but that is exactly why it works. The absurd situation the developers have dreamed up creates a sort of comedic chaos that you are the maestro of, and it is due to this unorthodox creativity that the game has drawn so much attention throughout the industry.
Yesterday I personally took to twitter to voice my hunger for the paternal-sea creature simulator on PlayStation Vita, which eventually found its way to the account of the games aforementioned Producer. Here is what Kevin Geisler had to say after being prodded about the possibility:

So fans of stumbling molluscae rejoice, we may just see Octodad make an appearance on PlayStation Vita.
