You Did It, Internet. Goat Simulator Is A Real Thing That You Can Buy.

Goat Simulator wasn't meant to be a game played by the public — it was just the product of a game jam where the devs were playing around with programming stuff. But when the internet saw footage of the game, almost everyone agreed: we need to have a game that lets us mess everything up as a goat. Because CHAOS REIGNS.

We'll see what we can do, Coffee Stain Studios, the developers behind the game, seemed to say — but no promises. Today, however, I can confirm that Goat Simulator will become a real game that anyone can buy. Here's the trailer:

Just like I never knew I wanted to be a goat in a game, I also never knew how badly video games need to let me lick things. Especially if licking things lets me swing an axe at people.

You can pre-order the game for $US9.99 here, which will give you early access to Goat Simulator 3 days before it officially releases on Steam. If you pre-order, you're guaranteed a Steam key. Yay!


    This looks amazing. A bug filled mess of hilarity. I can't wait.

    The way this happened makes it kind of like the game equivalent of "Snakes on a Plane".

    They should try and get Samuel L Jackson to voice the goat.

      Wasn't he the guy that did that commercial for Kia?

        "I’m the ‘what’s in your wallet’ black guy. Laurence Fishburne is the car black guy. Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy.”

    What if this was their plan all along? What if they purposely publicized the original footage to see what kind of feedback it would get to see if they should release it as a game?

    The stuffed goat sitting next to me approves of this fine piece of software. His name is Sunflower btw.

    Looks kinda like The Amazing Frog? on Ouya. Pointless bizarre randomness, and possibly the best laughs.

    Another step towards the nanny (goat) state.

    Can it eat three shirts off my back line?
