So I've been following this for a couple of months since they showed off some alpha footage. It actually looked pretty fun and now that they have had so much good feedback from those videos they have decided to polish it up and actually release it. The release date is... April 1st so I was expecting the pre-order page to be a joke but it's legit! They've also released a trailer in the style of a Dead Island parody, it's pretty spectacular!

 

Anyone else been following the game or interested in getting it?

It sounds stupid as hell but amusing.  I'll consider it if I finish up my other stuff, but with all the stuff I'm in the middle of...I doubt it'll happen.

I'm going to start Age of Wonders III on 31 march, so I don't have time for Goat Simulator... it's tempting to try it out though... I might buy it next month.

This game is ground breaking. This right here, is why you need a dedicated PhysX card.

Nope, it's real :p It's sitting in my Steam library waiting to go live at some point today!

 

Just hoping it goes live soon, I'm off to work in a bit and I'm dying to have a go before! Also the goat puns are amazing!

 

Also, for anyone interested. 

 

 

About the Game

 

Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! WASD to write history.

Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you'll earn even more points! Or you could just give Steam Workshop a spin and create your own goats, levels, missions, and more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.

 

Key Features

 

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

 

And earlier one of the devs made a goat pinball map in the level editor so it looks pretty powerful!
