About This 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.


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 bug out all the time
  • Seriously look at that goat's neck
  • You can be a goat

By far the most favorite Steam game of my 7 yrs old son.
And I've no idea why :(

What does this teach us?
- we're getting older all the time.
- your offspring may differ from you.

Kind of a novelty. Only entertaining for a few moments and then fizzles out.

I'm sorry, but i don't see the humor in this game. It's fun for like, 5 minutes, and then its just boring. If it gets any better, I might change my mind. Sure, there are mods, but that just doesn't save it. This wouldn't be that bad if it was at like 5 dollars, but I recommend buying Terraria or Garry's Mod with the 10 dollars.

Game name: Goat Simulator
Reviewed by: Wolf

In Summary...
Goat Simulator is a widely popular indie game started by Coffee Stain Studios back in 2014. The overall game idea and atmosphere seems like a joke, literally, as it's littered with not only player mesh bugs but also gameplay and graphical bugs. Goat Simulator focuses around the idea of yes: being a goat. You're encouraged to cause chaos between multiple levels introduced from new updates and DLC. There is not much more to it than that, and as you can imagine, the novelty wears thin after a few hours time.

WASD - Standard movement
Mouse - Standard look
Q - Ragdoll effect
F - Slow Mo
E - "Lick"
Mouse 1 - Headbutt
Mouse 2 - Rotate in air
1 - Baaa

The game features very basic sounds, it comes with an actual soundtrack which is played throughout. It's quite fitting, entertaining, and not very annoying as some games of the same genre are. They even have a Deadmau5 track as an easter egg! (Song is called Deadgoa7)

Here's where it gets tricky. The graphics are easily very good, as well as provide some high quality personality to characters and environments. Yet, since the first DLC, GoatZ, framerates have significantly dropped. I was able to run the vanilla game maxed out at 1080p 60fps (VSync on due to screen tearing, and I like it on in single player games), and when the DLC was released my framerates dropped to below 20's (at times) and that's with resolution downscaled to 720p and all settings on low. The Payday update did phenominally better, I was able to return to 1080p 60fps. I'm hoping the game developers realize they need to test a patch before sending it out.

Game Balance:
As stated before, the game is littered with bugs. Some, although comical (player model going crazy when going up ladders) which are quite comical and non-game breaking, and some which are completely trash (recently the Payday DLC, where you're allowed to drive vehicles. The vehicles have no control whatsoever, meaning the slighest bit of air causes you to flip over at times). You're able to get stuck into almost solid object by walking into it, sometimes even glitching through it and ending up in a non-escapable invisible area. There's some missing textures, some of which are walls you can just walk right on through. (Devs, there's a line between a comical glitch and a problem, for the love of god, glitches are problems.)


Final Rating:

In Conclusion:
When on sale (even not, third party sites offer this game dirt cheap) it's quite a great title, you can have plenty of fun mucking about being a goat and baaing some chaos onto the streets. The novelty wears thin after a while, so if you're not into taking a trip of doing some repetitive tasks (some do not realize theres actual objectives to the game) then this game isn't for you. Out of the time played and the DLC's released, it offered more than plenty of enjoyable time. (Also please fix the cars).

Please feel free to follow my curation page for more recommendations. Thanks for reading!

This isn't going to be a very popular opinion, but I really didn't like this game. I wanted to, and I tried hard to, I really, really did. It looked fun in videos, it came highly recommended by friends and it was on sale at the time I bought it. I should have had a blast with it. But this just doesn't do anything for me.

A brief history for those not in the know, courtesy of Wikipedia, arguably the best pedia on the internet. Goat Simulator started off life as a prototype born from a game jam with the aim being to help developers better learn how to use Unreal Engine. Never intended for human consumption, a posted video went viral and demand pushed the creators to release the game proper, followed several months after by two sizable, free updates adding whole new areas, objectives and gameplay mechanics. It's a great little indie success story that shows how a good idea can be enough to capture people's imagination and wallets. Plus goats. Goats helped a lot there, too. So where did it all go wrong for me? Ultimately, I just didn't have any fun with it at any point.

Play as a goat and cause general havoc to several areas and their denizens with a combination of wild goat moves, poor morals and bad physics. There are objectives in each area, but they really only serve as loose signposts to gently nudge the player to experiment with the different elements of the game. It's largely a destructive sandbox where you make your own fun and craft your own little adventure through the chaos. But the joke is that just about everything is intentionally bad. The AI has all the intelligence of a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ potato, the physics seems to have something of a mind of its own and nothing really makes any sense, it just exists... because. All of that is absolutely fine and I can't fault the goal they were aiming for. But it just never feels like it works for me.

As strange as it sounds, the joke doesn't feel "earned" here. Playing a game where the punch line is "look at how broken this is", but seeing it in something that's broken by design, just isn't very satisfying. Like... when you're watching dragons fly backwards in Skyrim or faceless teeth and eyes having a serious, heartfelt conversation with you in Assassin's Creed, that's proper p*ss yourself funny exactly because it's not supposed to be there. But when a game is filled with these kinds of things on purpose it loses what made it funny in the first place. I heard a great quote once, which I'm about to totally butcher, that to make people laugh is easy, you just put on an old lady wig and an old lady dress and some old lady glasses and you fall over, that's enough. But to make a comedian laugh it has to be a real old lady falling. And that's what this game feels like to me, it's someone in a silly wig and glasses falling over.

In fairness, the free MMO update content is much better at hitting its target as it parodies all the tired old tropes of RPGs. Having a fetch quest where the items are literally surrounding the quest-giver, or an escort mission with the slowest NPC ever committed to code, or a chat box perfectly recreating the kind of inane drivel sometimes seen from a minority of bad players that makes you damn near suicidal... all of these things really have something to say and make their point beautifully. But for me it just felt like too little too late.

For all the people who do love this game, I can't tell them they're wrong. If you enjoy something then it needs no further explanation or justification, that you had fun with it is all that matters, and I wish I could be in that group. But, sadly, if anyone asked then I couldn't recommend this. Go play Just Cause or Saint's Row for your sandbox mayhem shenanigans. Or better yet, go outside and punch a real goat. Aside from the social contempt and court fines, it's absolutely free!
