It started out as a mere test game. It was a test project to try a couple of programming things out. The alpha gameplay was first published in the official CoffeeStainStudios YouTube channel about one month ago. It gained instant popularity and went viral right away. That?s how the ?Goat? mania started on the internet.
At first, CoffeeStainStudios stated that it was ?merely for testing purposes as it was said in the description.
“Goat Simulator brings next-gen goat simulation to a whole new level. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true. WASD to write destiny.?
Goat Simulator is all about being a goat on an open world suburban community where normal things happen. Not until the goat (which is you) begins crashing the place. You literally ?crash? it. You can run around destroying things, licking stuff, grabbing them with your reality-defying tongue, climb places. You can also get hit by a car and act as if nothing happened. Do back flips and front flips as well.
Though it was obviously a joke at first, many people actually took it seriously and demanded that a full working version gets released. This is the internet and people get things done quite fast, especially when something goes viral.
Goat Simulator actually had an official release (let alone, it became a real video game title on its own). Set to be out on Steam by April 1. There are tons of features added to the game and you can do more meaningless but fun stuff. Here are the key features which can be seen on its Steam page:
-You can be a goat
-Get points for wrecking stuff – brag to your friends that you’re the alpha goat
-Steam Workshop support – make your own goats, levels, missions, game modes, and more!
-MILLIONS OF BUGS! We’re only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we’re keeping it
-In-game physics that spazz out all the time
-Seriously, look at that goat’s neck
-You can be a goat
There are no words to explain how epic, this game is and how much dumb fun you can out of it. The best thing to do is just watch the gameplay video and see it for yourself.
