10 Strangest but Compelling Games on the Vita

Octodad: Dadliest Catch

This is a game about a father who is actually an octopus in disguise. It is a hilarious romp through everyday human occurrences, such as going shopping. Octodad is a crazy marriage between an invertebrate and the sim genre -- one which GameSkinny thought was "downright hilarious."

The controls in the game are almost as strange as the concept itself. An octopus is naturally a wobbly and aquatic creature, so Octodad must overcome his lack of vertebrae in order to maintain the ruse. So sometimes it’s funnier to fail at a task that you're trying to complete in a very uncontrolled and floppy manner.

The game is divided into several levels, with a number of tasks required to progress in a level -- for example, collecting certain grocery items in a store.

As the game continues, it becomes more about stealth and action and gets a little more serious, as Octodad continues to hide his true identity.

All in all, this is a really strange and unique game to be played for fun. You can buy Octodad: Dadliest Catch for $14.99 on the PS Store.
