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:

-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)

The DLC will go live sometime around morning Pacific time on May 7th and will cost $4.99.

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

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.

+ Well, you're a goat
+ Highly destructable environment
+ Lots of subtle humor throughout the world
+ Worlds are decently large, and very open to exploration
+ Intentionally buggy mechanics, with often hilarious possibilities
+ This game goes out of its way to make the acquisition of steam achievements extremely comical and rewarding
+ Visuals are agreeable for an indie title, and there is a surprising amount of detail in the world

- Too few worlds to explore, with little real diversity
- Limited to only a few actions with which to interact with things
- This is often pointed out, but it has only a moderate replay value; it does get fairly repetitive

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 :)

I am updating this review every time the game is updated. This review is going to look at the game in stages rather than as a whole. As that is pretty much how I have played it.

First Impressions: The Original Review

Gaming just GOAT serious!
If this game doesn’t get GO(a)TY, then you just 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: New Map!
Goat City Bay

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: An Interesting Turn
Goat MMO Simulator

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 game’s 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 Goat City Bay but that makes it no less enjoyable. There were a few references I was pleasantly surprised/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!

UPDATE 3: Another Genre Mockery!

I was very surprised this time around that the new update wasn’t free. There was a slight bit of disappointment there but when I actually stopped to think about it, the devs have already expanded the game so much for free. I don’t blame them for asking for a small bit of money this time.

This new DLC is an obvious mockery to the survival horror genre that’s just all over the damn place these days. It’s a funny concept and follows the MMO joke nicely.

Although I was pretty content and hadn’t much to say about the previous updates, there were a few things with GoatZ I felt I needed to mention.

Throughout this whole game I have 100%ed it all the way. In survival mode of GoatZ, this probably would have been impossible if not for the workshop mod to stop your hunger. Your goat is hungry every 2 minutes and you’re so busy just looking for food to survive that it’s pretty impossible to do anything else (you can play the map in “Before Breakout” and “After Breakout” mode, so before is an option). I just thought the hunger was a little excessive even though it’s an obvious joke within itself and there are still a number of things you actually need to do in survival mode if you’re looking to complete it.

Using the “No Hunger” workshop mod I managed to re-100% the game. Although there were some very very tedious achievements this time around. Which were made a lot worse by how many times the game crashed whilst I was playing. “Craft every item in one game” – get to the last one, then it crashes. I wasn’t a happy bunny, that’s for sure. Looking back on it now, everything else seemed pretty straight forward. But none the less the whole thing still just felt tedious as hell.

The references and humour has kept up throughout the whole thing and it’s always nice to see funny little references that I understand. It’s always nice to see more from these devs to be honest!

I would say overall the DLC is worth it despite all the things I moaned about. It’s still fun to mess around with in a none-serious fashion. Just prepare for a storm of frustrated sighing if you are wanting to 100% it.

What will they do next?!

TL;DR : Goat.

This game is very fun indeed. You cant go wrong with destroying property, headbutting people, and breaking into restricted areas.
Love Chaos? This is the game for you. Simple "Skater Game" graphics but very funny Physics.
With the Physics with your friends you can start laughing your ♥♥♥ off when playing this game, with all the fun that revolves in it. Its not just limited to 3 maps, you can download maps or extra in game content from the community and have more fun.

I give this game a 9.5/10

(If you rip me off, I will hunt you down and kill you.)

The lava glows red on Mount Doom today
Not a Hobbit to be seen
A tower of peasant goats here
And it looks like I'm the queen
The turbines are howling like this storm of energy inside
I'm not gonna keep it in, I'm never gonna try.
I'll show them now, I'll let them see
The demonic thing that I can be
The end is now, the end is here...
It's time to make them fear!

Let it Goat, Let it Goat
It's time for the humans to know
Let it Goat, Let it Goat
Time to let my evil show!
I'll blow up cars! I'll make them pay!
(Even though they did nothing)
deadmau5 never bothered me anyway.

It's funny how some screaming
Can make me feel so strong
It's time to find the power
I've possessed all along!
It's time to see what I can do
To get more power and break through!
No right, no wrong, no rules for me...
I'll make them scream!

Let it Goat, Let it Goat!
I'll use my grapple tongue!
Let it Goat! Let it Goat!
I'll use Tank Goat's mighty lunge!
Ex-cali-Goat! Italian Di-no-saur Goat!
Let my dark reign rage on...

I braved the graveyard of the mighty SlenderGoat!
I was nearly killed when I went to some random island on a boat!
I fought the Michael Bay Turtles in their sewer underground!
And if I ever go back... We'll fight another round!

Let it Goat! Let it Goat!
I'll fly to space in a UFO!
Let it Goat! Let it Goat!
I'll eradicate the dodo!
Now I've won! This world is mine!
And if I ever get bored...
I think I'll do it again a second time.

Awesometacularlicious game. 10/10

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

**Before the review starts I want to say that my hours on the game are not me playing it, I played the game for about 3 hours and the rest are my little brother (8 years old) which liked this game so I let him play it.**

So I bought Goat Simulator because of all the hype around it when it first came out and after playing it with it's 2 very tiny maps, I was dissapointed with it and just left it. A few months go by and the "MMO Update" came out, and I played it for an hour until I had enough and left it alone because it was not fun. This game started a trend where people made bad simulator for the "lols" of it, which is dumb because it really is just a joke. Goat simulator tried to parody all the bad simulators that were out there before it but it just added itself to the pile of them. After this game a bunch of games got realeased: "Rock Sim" and "Grass Sim" and the list goes on and on which are all crap and are built around being crap like Goat Sim.

The whole point of Goat Simulator is that it's glitchy and it's suppose to be bad but that in my opinion is just a dumb concept to build a game around. If lets say an item gets shot into outher space in a shooter or a similar game, it's halarious because that doesn't usually happen but in Goat Sim it's more like:
I'm gonna walk this way, oh my goat glitched into the floor lol ok (respawns)
Oh my goat glitched and flew of to space.... I guess that's funny but now I have to walk all the way over there again.
Ok I have to deliver this item to someone better grab it with my to- o it glitched, yet again..... x how much time you spend on this game

+Funny for the first 30 mins
+Collectibles to find across the maps
+Funny references to other things
+ Slow motion button which is lovely

Half Pros Half Cons:
-/+Lots of easter eggs (too many and they get quiet repetitive)

-The game is too glitchy to actually play
-Tiny maps and a boring MMO map in the sense that it isn't creative in any way shape or form
-Jokes that are childish
-Jokes that are suppose to be funny but don't actually make sense (Played as a microave for example)
-The score system can be beaten super easily so there is no point for it
-If you try to knock over people they just get back up so there is no point of doing that
-The "AI" is poop
- Extremely annoying soundtrack that just loops around 3 songs
-Jetpack is pointless because it just spirals out of control
-30 fps cap
-Ridiculous pop-in

Overall 4/10 Don't buy this game just for the LOLS because you are just supporting a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game.

Goat Simulator is an open world sandbox in the truest since of the word. There are no objectives, no story and not even the possibility of death. Just you and three large maps to explore and cause havoc in. As the name implies you play as a goat that escaped from it's pen. He is far from a normal goat though as he can run on walls, has an incredibly stick tongue and is incapable of death despite being near explosions or falling down absurd heights. This demigoat has no goals and is content just griefing the people that cross its path. The locations it comes across are all very strange and feature aliens, protesting of genital shaped food and a ton of memes. It is a very strange game that relies on you to make your own fun and gives you a comical world to explore with over the top rag-doll physics and tons of secret powers for your goat.

Most of the fun comes from how over the top and wacky everything is as well as finding tons of easter eggs. You will never know what to expect around the corner and it is a ton of fun interacting with all the objects like tiny bottle rockets. The goat also has the power to slow down time so you can see the destruction you brought in slow motion. Completing small random events like winning in a goat sumo match for example grants your goat super strength and that is probably the most sane power. Others let you summon blocks from Minecraft, get a grappling hook or even lets you make goats to rain out of the sky. Bicycles are ride-able even though you are a goat though controlling it is near impossible. And that is a big part of what keeps this game so much fun, the sheer insanity of it all.

One of the three maps was introduced as free dlc and added actual objectives to the area. It is an MMO simulator where you start of by picking your class be it Mage, Rouge and even play as a Microwave along with a few other classes. Each class has their own unique attack and there is a leveling system. Leveling up does near nothing and doesn't really matter since you can't die. There is an inventory system in which you can carry around any object even other characters for later use. This map is very different than the rest as if features elves along with other magical races. The main theme of it is to take part in the long lasting and brutal war between sheep and goats. Though you do not have to take part in anything and can simply mess around like every other map. One thing I would like to mention is how awesome the chat room in this map is.

Graphics are pretty nice as the game is running on the Unreal 3 Engine. Music is very silly and off beat which I imagine would be either love it or hate it type of soundtrack. Physics are over the top and very fun to watch fly around though you may occasionally get your head stuck in objects and watching a goat climb a ladder is equally terrifying and hilarious. It features full controller support and up to four player local coop which is always a blast. Steam Workshop is also integrated into this title allowing you to download new maps, powers and even game-modes such as pinball. There is no blood, gore or even strong language. The most adult joke in this game that I have seen is the no phallic shaped food sign I mentioned earlier. It may be a pretty good title to play with your children since there is 4 player coop and no death only fun.

It is pretty buggy though nothing game-breaking, mostly just the physics spazzing out and objects being sent flying by the slightest touch. A score system is in place which you can increase by landing jumps and pretty much doing anything at all. It does nothing and is there just for the heck of it. You can not swim instead you glide along the water like a skipping stone until you reach land again. There are secrets in the water so don't write it off as an annoyance. The NPCs in this game are dumb as rocks and will occasionally get themselves injured though they always get back up. Simply tripping a person sends the community into a panic as they run around screaming due to a goat tripping a man. They have pretty short memories and will usually go back to dancing or whatever they happened to be doing before the goat so rudely tripped someone and is now over there licking a bicycle. That fiend.

Overall this is a very strange title to recommend. It is fun for some and boring for others. I personally love it as it reminds me of the days of playing Tony Hawk's freeskate mode with a friend and just jumping over cars and performing insane tricks with no pesky timer only you, a mate and a entire city to cause chaos in. On the other hand I can see why people wouldn't like it as you are just thrown into the world with no objective, story or challenge to be found anywhere. This is definitely the type of game for those of us that spend our youth crashing toy cars instead of racing them, completely ignoring the missions in Grand Theft Auto or were watching action movies while everyone else was still watching Disney. If you fit any of those or just found the contents of this review interesting this game is likely for you.
