Backyard is a stage in Fraymakers hailing from Octodad: Dadliest Catch that serves as a home stage for Octodad.

Layout

Backyard consists of a large grassy platform with walls stretching far downward. With hazards turned on, the left and right sides of this platform are blocked by fences, which serve as walls and can swing open if a player is knocked into them. Additionally, a soccer ball and barbecue grill appear on the stage and can be knocked around when attacked, damaging opponents they hit. With hazards turned off, the fence walls and objects are not present, making Backyard a flat and featureless stage.

Music

  • The music track arranged by Super Soul Bros. is Octodad Medley, an orchestral jazz medley consisting of the title theme, Title Screen, and main theme, Octodad (Nobody Suspects a Thing), from Octodad: Dadliest Catch, as well as the title theme of the original Octodad.

Origin

Octodad's backyard in Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

Backyard is based on Octodad's backyard, which appears in the level "Home, Sweet Home" of Octodad: Dadliest Catch. In this level, Octodad enters the backyard to perform chores while being monitored by his family, including mowing the lawn, pulling weeds from the garden, chopping firewood, grilling and serving hamburgers, and hanging up the birdhouse. Afterwards, Chef Fujimoto breaks through the fence with a mower and attempts to suck Octodad into it but fails.

The stage in Fraymakers features several sections of the backyard in the background related to the chores that Octodad performs. The use of the soccer ball and barbecue grill as hazards may be a reference to the complex way objects are interacted with in the Octodad games due to Octodad's slippery physics.

Trivia

  • Backyard, along with Stratostar and Merchant Port, was one of the three stages shown for the game's reveal through Kickstarter and one of the five stages initially planned for the base game.
