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

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

I crashed into a garden party, set everyone on fire with a stove and dragged them into the forest, to sacrifice the people to satan, so I could become a demon goat.

They say "don't knock it til you try it".... well, let's not go down that alley, but this on this other hand DEFINTIELY applies. It has Physics. It has a goat. It has Fire. It has a goat devil. What else do you really need.

This game is creative, it has a good sense of humour to it, and damn enjoyable, but also requires skill and patience to master different objectives and techniques.

Its something you can just pick up, have some fun, and come back to whenever you want to have some virtual destruction in your life.

I always knew there was something wrong with me. I licked people, I liked destroying fencing, and I enjoying ring-fighting goats. I never knew there were others like me. I stumbled apon this game and I needed it. I wanted it. I HAD to have it. Since I was poor, I had to have it gifted to me. Soon, it popped up in my gift inventory and I quickly started and dowloaded the game. I was transported to a land. A land of my people. I met other people like me. Or should I say goats like me. I soon had a family of goats. They were my best friends. Soon I decided it was the right time. I went to my doctor and decided to become a goat. After the surgery, I put my hooves on my keyboard and began playing. It felt wrong. I was making fun of my people. Soon, as a rebellion, I began acting out. At school, I would sprint down the hall and headbutt teachers and fellow students. They all laughed at me, they thought I was different. I logged back into Goat Sim and consoled with my people. Soon they advised me to continue. I skipped school the next day. I ran through my town, screaming and licking. The cops could not contain me. I ran to the petting zoo and let all of the goats free. We soon took over the world. Bow down to me, peasants, or join us, become a goat WITH US! MUAHAHAHAHAHA

Fun to play, neat concept. I love the ragdoll physics. When it gets old after a few hours, engage Big Picture mode, throw a couple controllers at the kids and watch them pee themselves for hours of inappropriate hilarity!

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

While the joke may not last for long and $10 is kinda a hefty price for a joke game, the concept of a goat sandbox game like this was an interesting one, and for the time I played this game, I had a great time, what with the intentional bugs and odd jokes. If you're into that kind of thing and don't mind plopping down the cash, Goat Simulator is for you!

once a true story, it is now a forgotten legend due to a legendary hero defeating the goat king.
What's this?
You don't know that legend?
Of course you don't, buttfarts, it's forgotten!

Now sit down on your fanny cakes, as I retell the legend of legends.

Once upon a time, in a time that once existed after time, there was a walrus queen who ruled all time. The walrus queen was not beautiful. At all. Her fanny was tied in a knot, her whiskers a flood on her face; Short story, she was ugly! However, the walrus queen did do her role in walrus society. And that was holding a bucket and pretending she was a whale. This one day, the walrus queen, as everyone knows, asexually reproduced, and out popped a little rascal: a goat. The walrus queen looked at the little baby goat, charmed by its exquisitely beautifulness. She then whips her tail at the goat, kicking the goat into the dark, blue sea, because that's what all walruses do to their babies. True story! So the walrus queen's a butt now, yada yada yada, but who cares about the walrus queen? I don't. Let's follow that goat, eh?

The goat's body lay motionless, floating on the surface of the sparkling ocean. But if you remember correctly, if you remember the last paragraph, this goat WAS the birth baby of the walrus queen. As if magic was real, this little goat started jumping ON the water, over the water at high speed! Yet, he hardly moved, but little ragdoll-like movements! What could this goat be capable of?! The goat sped over the high seas, across storms, across boats, but none had hurt his lightning speed! Well, maybe the boat. It did have a hot tub after all... I mean, this goat was going REALLY fast! But alas, all crazy things may come to an end. Or will they? After a day and a day and a d- a very long time, the goat landed on land. An island with a small city, and a theme park! What trouble could the little fartbrain get into here?

After a few hours of sunbathing on the warm sand, the little goat stood up, with little to no effort! Like magic! But not. The little goat gazed around, seeing the umbrellas and towels and... people! Suddenly, the kid had a sudden want of suddenly... licking everything? Within a second, the goat's really long tongue shot out and struck the closest person; a very fat man. The tongue was sticking to the plump man! The goat started to run away, but somehow, the tongue had like 50 bajillion muscles, as the fatty was being dragged by the tongue! That's gross. That's really gross. It's just like that Steamer guy from Right 2 Alive. BUT let's not talk about that. Let's talk about the horror that the goat will become.

No one screamed or anything. They just kinda stared at the animal pulling a somewhat lifeless man with its tongue. I guess there WERE some crazy people who said, "Aww, that's so cute!" At least that was the last thing they said, as they were dragged to nowhere at somewhere. The little goat had so much stamina. Or was stamina even a word for him? He would never stop! Well, he did stop in front of a store. Full of hats. BEAUTIFUL hats. Detaching its tongue from a pink lady, the goat stared through the windowed display. He took one step back. The goat then RAMMED THROUGH THE WINDOW, BLEATING AROUND. He then licked all of the hats. All of them.But... what's this? They're... GOAT-PROOF?! The kid stared at the hats, with a sad look. The shopkeeper. who was somehow unafraid, stood behind the counter. "Ya need money, kid." The goat stared at the shopkeeper.

The city's probably bankrupt now. I mean, no one has money now, except the shopkeeper. And the only thing now that the goat owns is a pile of hats. HATS. I wonder if he would give me so- I mean, he had a lot of hats. So off around, again he pranced. He did all kinds of things a goat wouldn't do. But would. So events and events and event after event*, he finally came about to a majestic land, full of majesticness! THE THEME PARK! There was SO MUCH to do! And that he did*.

The goat spent years, years growing up at his simple life, without drink, food, or anything. But when he explored further, he found another city. With his tongue and head bashing, PROFESSIONAL skills, he explored once more. He became the demon king, the summoner of whales, and became the first goat with a jetpack. He trampled with boulders, destroyed many landmarks, and defeated the ♥♥♥♥♥-shaped food protestors. He was a hero(?). But there he stood, before a tall tower, there were some. Some of his own kind. What nonsense was this? He licked and rammed the goats off the tower, because this goat is a total di-, ah-, jerk. There was a small entrance at the top of the tower's spiraling stairs. Curiousity never killed the goat, so why say not to the goat entering it?

The goat entered a large, sparkling hall, with goats side by side along the long red carpet. The goat peered at the large throne ahead of him. There was no one there? He began to ram every single goat. With all the peasant goats laying on the shiny clean floor tiles, the goat then claimed the throne as his own. Everything began shaking, as if Zeus himself farted on the world in disgrace. The goat fell unconscious, with the world spinning around him.

The goat awoke in a grass field. He felt a weird tightness around his forehead. He had a crown. A KING'S crown. He had known what had happen. He had to go to the urinal, but couldn't hold the pain anymore, so he fell unconscious. Right? OH, wait wrong game. But, I think he's the Goat King now! The Goat King bleated proudly, loudly. Then peasant goats, PEASANTS, began to rain like, well, falling goats from the sky! The Goat King was unafraid. These were his peasants. And by this, he would make an army.

So World War lll almost started, so what? The Goat King continued with doing everything he did in his own childhood, except with x10 more goat. The people were frighthened, some crazies still saying, "Aww, that's cute." Again, before getting rammed. So chaos pursues! But chaos always has an ending! It wasn't like there was police or anything, just... Listen! As the Goat King was terrorizing children while riding a bicycle, a loud booming voice was heard. "STOP!" The Goat King lost controlk of the bicycle and rammed into a gas truck. That truck exploded shortly after. Regaining strength, the Goat King turned his head to see a majestic, plump figure. It was HIM. It was Gaben.

The Goat King was aware of this legendary hero. But he wasn't aware that The Gaben would come after himself. "STOP!" The Gaben repeated. The Goat King, however, did not want to stop. The Goat King bleated as loud as he could ever bleat, summoning more peasants from the sky. The bodies hit the floor. They did nothing. The peasant goats never did anything. They're useless. The Gaben shook his head in disbelief. The Goat King was pi- angry now! With the gracefulness of a bull, he began to charge towards the Gaben. The Gaben was in no harm. In fact, he was never in harm at all. Calm and majestically, he rose a finger towards the charging Goat King. As the Goat King's nose and the finger of the Gaben came in contact, The Gaben said his own name. "Gaben." (Of course, a legendary hero would never reveal their own name.) The Goat King was frozen. With a flick of his wrist, the Gaben blasted the Goat King into sky, the Goat King leaving a trail of dosh, money, and all of that shizzles. The Gaben smiled at the defeated villain. He then flew away on his flying tub of butter.

Legend says the Goat King still bleats in space. Truth says Gaben's still a hero.

This "simulator" isn't a "simulator." This is time, the time of the Goat King, BEFORE he was defeated by The Gaben.
This is a story. The story of the Goat King. And you're the writer.
