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 inhabitants as they go about their daily schedules. Interaction with characters in the city is important to learn gossip and uncover the secrets behind the decaying metropolis.
