In the 2014 science fiction action comedy animated film Penguins of Madagascar, the villain Dr. Octavius Brine is a genetic scientist who is actually an octopus, but masquarades as a human. The protagonist of the 2010 video game Octodad (and its 2014 sequel) is also an octopus masquarading as a human. They even move somewhat similarly. Did the video game inspire the creators of the film when they made this character?
I would prefer an answer based on what any of the staff of the film said, such as in an interview, over speculation.
This question has been closed as off topic and reopened again, twice, as can be seen in its timeline.
The question about its topicality has been put to a vote on meta, and the outcome seems to point to the movie Penguins of Madagascar being on topic
