Rhodri Broadbent, formerly a lead designer for Q-Games' PixelJunk series, posted this first trailer for the delightfully titled The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character, first project he's working on at UK-based independent developer Dakko Dakko.

From what I can see in this video, the game has you controlling a google-eyed octopus that rotates and sticks to diferent surfaces, jumping around to collect mini-octopi while avoiding projectiles thrown from green blobs, sushi chef knives, and golden maneki nekos.

The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character will release some time this spring for PSP and PS3.
