What happens when a joke video posted on the Internet generates so much hype that it actually becomes a real video game? Goat Simulator happens. And as if it could be released on any other day of the year, it’s released on April 1st.
It’s a simple game that sees you moving around the map as a goat destroying as many things as possible to earn points. There’s more though, as the game features a surprising amount of hidden goodies and fun stuff. It’s buggy, it’s filled with easter eggs, it’s dumb, and it’s so incredibly fun that you simply have to play it. It only costs $9.99, and it’s worth every penny.
Check out the video we made below showcasing about 10 minutes of hilariously ridiculous gameplay. You will not be disappointed.
Let me just leave you with a quote from Coffee Stain Studios. the developers of the game:
Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. I t was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.
If that doesn’t sell you on just how awesomely stupid and fun this game is, nothing will.
