Today I’m going to bring up a very interesting title. Goat Simulator by Coffee Stain Studios. A game where you play as a goat and go around creating chaos. So, if you have ever wanted to be a goat, this is your chance!
Here is the website!
I started up this game, already knowing what to expect. Goats, chaos, and bugs. The game’s Steam page has some interesting selling points, one of them being “MILLIONS OF BUGS! We’re only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we’re keeping it”. I wasn’t sure what kind of bugs I would find after hitting the play button, but I will tell you they were all funny as shit. My first impression is that the graphics are actually pretty good, the game ran really smooth, and the gameplay is frickin funny. I loaded my goat, and began exploring the awesome town that you spawn in. You find yourself surrounded by moving vehicles, stray mattresses, trampolines, and lots of people. You get points for licking things, wrecking things, jumping on things, etc etc etc…
There are some awesome places to explore in the game, and you can climb up super high. There are accessories you can unlock for your goat, so that you can have more fun and an easier time making objectives. The overall objective is to get a “really big ass score”. You can also unlock secrets and new goats (well… maybe goats?). The bugs really are an addition to the game. Your goat spazzes out, your neck bends weird directions, and you can also mess up the NPC characters pretty good. Pretty much everything is destructible, and you will get a laugh from some of the stuff that you can lick. Some of the locations are also really interesting. The game is really rewarding.
I would encourage anyone who wants a good laugh to pick up a copy of this game. It’s affordable, and totally worth it. You will have something funny to show your bros when the party starts getting boring. If you like causing mass destruction and explosions, this is the game for you. If you are bugged by bugs… well maybe not. Trust me, you will get your neck stuck in a wall after shooting miles across the map. It just kind of happens. Either way, I’m having a really fun time getting my goat on so far, and I can feel my stomach muscles getting tighter by the minute.
