About Octopus City Blues
In a world undergoing an unnatural ice age, the last human survivors are densely packed in Octopus City, a towering metropolis built around a giant octopus. Players assume the role of Kaf Kafkaryan, a cowardly middle-aged man who cuts tentacles for a living. Kaf is addicted to Octoblood, a foul substance that allows him to explore bizarre dream worlds. The line between reality and dreams begins to blur as Kaf dives deeper into the city's underworld and uncovers a large conspiracy.
Octopus City Blues is a 2D adventure game that focuses on exploration, replay value and the consequences of choices. It simulates the lives of the city's NPC as they go about their daily schedules. Each NPC is important and has his or her personality and relationships. The city is changing all the time and dynamic events happen frequently. The main plot is explored using a number of independent quests that can be attempted in any order. Choices are central to the game and can be affected by several factors such as Kaf's stress and guilt.
