A Kinect version of Octodad had been in development for a while now, and the students from DePaul University were at GDC to showcase an early prototype build for attendees who stopped by their IGF student showcase booth last month. Bytejacker host and IGF awards ceremony presenter Anthony Carboni sent Jackie Talbott to pay the development team a visit and interview them about their future plans for a motion-controlled port of Octodad.

Like any good interviewer, Jackie also decided to try out the prototype of Octodad Kinect for herself. Arms were waved back and forth, swimming motions were mimicked, and we have the camera operator to thank for capturing most of the tomfoolery on tape for our amusement.
