Everyone lost their shit a few months back when Goat Simulator found itself onto the internet and everyone thought ‘wow, what could be more fun than being a goat and running around a town terrorising people/doing whatever the hell goats do?’
As such, an internet joke went slightly too far and Goat Simulator will now be a fully playable game come next Tuesday, which coincidentally is April Fool’s Day. The official trailer itself is a Dead Island rip off and makes the game look pretty dramatic, as it’s also thrown in a few explosions too. I mean obviously a goat is going to encounter explosions whilst it’s running around a city, right?
The second trailer is way better though because it really demonstrates the craziness you can expect when playing Goat Simulator i.e. grabbing a park bench with your tongue and chasing people around with it and jumping off a huge crane onto a trampoline and missing it. Count me in.
The press release from Coffee Stain Studios had the following to say: ‘Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasise about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true!’ which makes you want to get really pumped up about the game. That is until you read the next paragraph that kind of puts a bit of perspective on the whole thing:
‘Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. It 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.’
Whatever, I’m still stoked for it.
