Imagine rolling hills surrounded by mountains. A lone, brown and white equine stands gazing at this most generic of landscapes, its hooves exerting a brand of friction of their own devising. This, in itself, is a strange situation, but let us take it a step further — in front of this muddy, physics-defying horse is a perfect sphere made from its skin. Its skin.
Cliffhorse is not so much a game as it is... a thing. Posted today via Twitter by Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson, the developer requested interested users toss him a few Dogecoin, after which they'd be provided "early access". You don't actually have to tip Notch anything — the link goes straight to the download.

The Unity-built Cliffhorse doesn't have a purpose, rather, you get to run amok on four legs, batting around a giant ball. That's about it. Oh, you can stand sideways, soar into the sky or, if you're me, transform yourself into a meatball-horse hybrid.
Put simply, it's Goat Simulator with a horse... minus anything to do.
