GoatZ - new DLC for Goat Simulator!

That’s right. GoatZ is the latest DLC for Goat Simulator and it will be the only survival game on Steam that isn’t in Early Access!*

*not totally sure if this is even true, to be honest we didn’t bother to look it up. But it’s still pretty funny, right?

Watch the official trailer here:

Features

-Mandatory crafting system because everyone else is doing it
-Zombies that bug out. There’s a pun here about actual living bugs, but we’re not going to bother
-You can craft anything in the world, as long as it’s one of the half dozen weapons in the game
-Zombies, because this is a zombie game, remember?
-A pretty big new map with some stuff in it
-Completely realistic survival mode where you have to eat every damn five minutes to survive because Dean Hall & Garry Newman said so
Tons of unlockable new goats with special powers (wow, never thought I’d ever write that sentence a couple of years ago. Also hi mom)

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.

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

Mac and Linux Disclaimer

The Mac and Linux ports are still in Beta. Expect problems. We're working on fixing them asap!

Goat Simulator has a deep story line and boasts some of the best physics and graphics I've seen in any modern day game. The portrayal of each character is well thought-out and the achievements gained by playing the game are meaningful. Whether you are gracefully flying over a map after a large explosion, or helping a person cross the road, players of all ages are bound to enjoy this game. My grandmother watched me play the game, and now she has set up her own Steam account for the sole purpose of playing Goat Simulator. Even my dog Clifford is getting into it, and now has accumulated over 300 hours worth of solid gamplay. Coffee Stain Studios should be given a big pat on the back and a rousing round of applause.

11/10- Would lick again

Intro
Have you ever dreamed of being a goat? Exploring lands as a goat? Maybe smashing into cars and watching them blow up? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this game is for you! If you answered no to any of these questions, this game is for you!

Goat Simulator is a game in which you take on the role of a goat. An invincible goat, that is. You start in a small town with a party, construction site, and a satanist sacrifice forest. You can simply roam the city and explore, you can cause mass chaos and blow up gas containers or parked cars, you could become a sky diving goat and jump off a construction crane, hitch a ride on a paraglider, or get hit by a bus just because you can!

What you can do as a goat
  1. Fly with a jetpack uncontrollably
  2. Get hit by a bus
  3. Lick a bolder and throw it down at civilians having a barbeque
  4. Have a party and become DeadGoa7
  5. Get beet up by people in an ally
  6. Ride a bike
  7. Use your oh so powerful tongue of yours to hold onto a ferris wheel
  8. Swim by simply jumping in water and willing yourself to move
  9. Become an angel goat
  10. Become a devil goat
  11. Become a anything-you-eat-will-turn-into-a-bomb goat
  12. Go on the workshop and become a <fill in workshop item here> goat.
  13. Do anything else you've ever desired to do as a goat
  14. Run head on into a building/car and just fall down
  15. Scale walls with your amazing goat sprint jump ninja skills
  16. Run into civilians and hear them scream because they fell over and watch them glide up and run away
  17. Walk into a carnival, jump into a booth, people scream, trying to run away, and then say "Is that a goat??!"
Score: Goat/10 would play again

I recommend this game for people who laugh at anything. If you get bored easily and are very critical about your video games, don't get it.

So I was deciding whether to do a serious review on Goat Simulator because I haven't seen one on Steam; so rather than join the bandwagon of unfunny jokey reviews for the game, I'll stick to my guns...

Goat Simulator does exactly what it says on the tin; you play as a Goat, You cause havoc wherever you go; trashing, bashing, causing explosions, destroying houses, jumping on trampolines, basically anything you want. With plenty of interactive objects in the game, you can spend plenty of time wandering around never finding a dull moment.

The graphics in goat simulator are really nice. They aren't on the levels of Evolve or something, but for this type of game, you aren't really going to be playing for the top of the range graphics. The music and audio are exactly what you would expect here; derpy music in the background as you potter about the city, along with cries of fear from the civilians as the demon goat runs rampant.

There are three different areas in Goat Simulator; each zone is huge, ranging from theme parks, to crop fields, every building has something to do in it, every room has something to interact with or destroy. I honestly don't think there is anything wrong with either of the levels included here. There is nothing difficult in the game to do here at all. There are no real objectives, just an open world sandbox game where you do whatever you want, whenever you want.

I have managed to put about twenty hours into Goat Simulator; most of this time was playing on local screen co-op with my girlfriend, and then a couple more hours’ achievement hunting, and boy there is some pretty ridiculous achievements to do. Other than the developers openly coming out stating that they would not be fixing any bugs in the game, I had no real game breaking bugs, apart from sometimes falling through the world; however this was fixed easily by just respawning again.

If you want a game that is just purely for messing around in with no real aim and wanting some real stupidity, then Goat Simulator will give you plenty of fun; granted this type of game is not for everyone, I enjoyed it though.

Gaming just goat serious.

If this game doesn’t get GO(a)TY, then you goat to be kidding me.
I mean, if it doesn’t float your goat, then that’s fine. But seriously, this goat is just too goat.

...But in all seriousness, it’s the one of the most original and fun games that I have played in a while. It’s got a good humour to it. You can tell the people that made it were just having a laugh and it seems to me they didn’t expect it to get as big as it did. I think it was pretty refreshing when it came out, something different and stupid to mess around on. Has quirky little things in the game that makes you chuckle and I have never known ragdolls to fail at making people laugh.

The fact that it has Steam workshop makes it a lot more appealing also, the game itself can be completed 100% within a day or two. But at least with the workshop you have something to keep you entertained if you ever wanted to re-visit. Despite its length I still really enjoyed it and look forward to any updates that may come to this game. There’s many more possibilities with maps and different goats, so who knows!

All in all you just have to get this game and give it a fair goat.

UPDATE 1: They updated the game to have another map and twice the achievements. Essentially free DLC, which I thought was actually a really nice addition to the game. It gives you more play time and new features to mess around with. It also shows the developers are in this more so for the long run than a quick cash builder because it blew up. I would easily say the update doubled the game, I completed the updated achievements 100% again although there were a few trickier ones this time around. I really hope they keep them updates coming!

UPDATE 2: This update was a pretty big one! They took a whole new turn with it as well. Goat MMO Simulator was a great idea. It was a nice way to keep the games silly, yet quirky charm going. Something new and different and it really was fun. I would say that I found this update easier to 100% then the first one but that makes it none the less enjoyable. Was a few references I was pleasantly surprised and amused by. This ‘free extra content’ thing Coffee Stain Studios have going on here is great. Again, I would love to see more in future!


TL;DR : Goat.

1 word FUN, this game kills boredom

create havok in goat ville, get owned by a hillbilly, jump on trampoline's slide down waterslides, destroy a coffee shop, ride a roller coaster, use a jetpack and even do a goat brawling ring! and much more!

There's not much to this game other then blow things up and destroy stuff, but it's hella fun to do. :D

This is one of the only games that made me actually laugh not just once a few times! when I walked on the treadmill and was like wtf xD

10/10 for crazyness totally worth it for your $$$ if you like crazy no rules game :)

This game is very entertaining and silly, if you are new to Simulators, I think you should try this out.
If you like comedy and funny things, This is good as well.
This game is about being a Goat and Just scre'win' around on all kinds of maps.
I am a little disappointed in the MMO, since they placed Bots instead of real players. I give that a huge minus.
If you think I'm lying, i'm not. Lol. I played this for like... SO MUCH TIME in MMO since I found it interesting, but It is like Single Player since ''everyone'' is a bot... yeah.. I noticed on chat, the makers of MMO made like> HAHAHHAH LOL LOL.
They tried to make players sound like they are real, using the trolling words and stuff that everyone says....
But it didn't work well, since I found out myself how they faked the real people...
I found it very ''insulting'' since it is not real. We waited and voted for the MMO so long, and when it came, it's just a 'faker'.
But I still love to play the Single Player and the default maps, it's fun.
This game is for you if you like to destroy stuff and kill innocent people... ah..

My rate: 9/10

This game proved to me that hype and YouTube are a nasty buisness, and despite the practice, tons of morons ( like me ) will buy it for the enormous attention its getting, only to get a game that COULD be funny for a little time, but then it just sits in your library like a tumor.
