Octopus City Blues now available for Linux, Mac and Windows


Octopus City Blues is an #adventure game set in a city built around a giant octopus from #developers Ghost in a Bottle GmbH. The player character sounds about as odd as the setting, as well as containing an apparent nod to fans of the Franz in his name – “Assume the role of Kaf Kafkaryan, a cowardly middle-aged octopus blood junkie and tentacle trimmer”. Plagued by strange dreams, Kaf journeys into Octopus City’s underbelly and uncovers a conspiracy, which looks like it might involve a cast of wretches bizarre enough to make you cough up your naked lunch. Immersing players in a fascinating setting filled with unusual characters. Special emphasis is placed on exploration, replay value and the consequences of choices. The demo is available now and there are some suggestions as to how it should be played.

Containing one of the early chapters, the demo runs on #Linux, Mac or Windows and is designed to be replayable, like the rest of the game. Decisions to be made, consequences to be experienced.

We’re really excited about this release and we hope you enjoy it. We encourage you to play more than once, because a lot of the content you’ll see depends on your choices and approach. There are multiple endings, and some variations on each of them, in addition to various ways to complete the main quest. Talk to NPCs, learn gossip, and be careful about the choices you make. More importantly, have fun and remember to say no to Octoblood!

The simulation is scheduled for release in 2015 and was funded in a Kickstarter Campaign. The demo is comprising one of the early chapters. If you like the work s support the developers by pre-ordering the simulation and become an official OctoFan™.
