If you haven’t been able to enjoy a proper honking yet, don’t worry, because everyone’s favourite goose is coming to more platforms soon.
Melbourne developers House House said in an interview with the ABC that the studio’s intention is to roll the game out on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox platforms before starting work on a third project.
“Some business models are really about keeping people playing the game for as long as possible … whereas for us, we’re more about making sure people are having as good a time as possible while they play,” House House founder Nico Disseldorp said.
Sometimes you put something out into the world, and all you get back is good energy. That's the lifecycle of Untitled Goose Game right now, and it's only bettered by the prospect of thinking about where the honking little devil can flap its wings next.Read more
And while it’s no surprise, the developers also confirmed that Goose Game is already a commercial hit. They wouldn’t outline exactly how many copies they’d sold so far, but it’s a figure that any Australian studio — and any indie developer, really — would be happy with:
Disseldorp is reluctant to reveal how many downloads their new game has had, but says it is in excess of 100,000.
At the current going price of $22 a game, that’s at least a couple of million gross in the bank. The actual return to the studio would be less once publisher and platform fees are factored in, but if the studio gets even half of that, that’s certainly enough to keep the four-team studio kicking along for a while. Maybe the goose might even get an extra bell or two to play with.
