After an indie video game studio recently released a gameplay video of something called Goat Simulator—an experimental game never meant to be played by the public—the Internet clamored for more. To the tune of more than 200,000 views in 24 hours and dozens of emailed requests.
Now Goat Simulator is a real thing, with a real trailer, and it’s available for pre-order on Steam for $9.99. And it is glorious.
The gameplay is self-explanatory. You inhabit the body of the domestic goat, allowing you to jump off things, lick things, and swing an axe at people. (Or headbutt them.) None of the physics make sense, but then again, this game makes no sense.
But I’m left with this question: Does Goat Simulator actually mean Greatest Of All Time Simulator?
