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 spazz 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!

One day the disciples had heard the end of this call firstborn.
"I was on goat dream last night, the tongue is a delight to fly cheolreok between town I went, I forgot Nine map was broken in a dream And then suddenly I feel so jotahseo.
I'm not broke, I saw the goat is not it?
So when was the goat in a dream to think that I did not know earlier nine maps.
But obviously I was breaking me in a dream.
So I applied to me, or do I have a dream I was a goat now?
I now really is the real me? What changed me or goat? "

If you have some green and love a sandbox, look no further. Hours of entertainment.
Women love it too. And who doesn't love a goat?

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

So I like this game a lot, however it's a joke. Even jokes get old, and I know the people who created this game wanted to make people laugh by the physics. However, after 5 minutes of gameplay, it does get very boring...

"Goat Simulator...This game is Sooooooooo Random i love it ahahha the glitches LOOK AT TEH GLITCHES"

Now you never need to watch a let’s play of this game.

Goat Simulator is unsettlingly influential in the games industry with the creation of this we are now seeing a huge spike and increase in you tuber bait games (Eg: Rock simulator and Ampu-tea).

I could see this being and enjoyable 1 hour of fun for $1 and then everyone forgetting about it however to spite all logic and common sense this game exploded with popularity and coverage when it came out, everyday i would hear someone say to their friend "Hey have you heard about goat simulator...dude, the devs kept all the bugs in LOL" this word of mouth affect was definitely the most obnoxious part of this game but i suppose i should actually talk about the "Game-play"

Goat simulator is a Tony Hawk clone staring a goat and about six default unity character models that are repeated 20 times (guy in red, guy in blue, girl in red etc.) and that’s pretty much it. Some people would say it’s a physics sandbox... They would be wrong, the physics are as accurate and enjoyable as a college students first attempt at making a 3D ball bounce on their IMac, the "open world" is about the size of a child’s sand pit except half of it has been taken up by the big bully who mom is friends with your mom so you can’t do anything to him.

"What do you mean by this sand pit analogy" I hear you say well by this i mean that the world is there but there is no point interacting with it for example cars drive around but give no reaction to you aside from hitting you, they will just plow through anything regardless of how dumb it is to do so.

All this seems like minor nit-picks when you have the "wacky glitches" right? Glitches are like money, if you find it on the ground while going about your business you are happy and excited but if the government stars printing millions of $1 bills and leaves them on the ground the economy becomes inflated and that money is essentially worthless because there is so much of it lying around.

But what about the "wacky modifiers". Well the modifiers that are in the game (such as jet pack goat and evil goat) are uninteresting and dull, so let’s go over a few of the main ones them

Jetpack goat- Even less control and enjoyment then normally playing

Queen goat- Spawns more goats, Just in case your frame rate was too high

Minecraft goat- 80% of the people who buy this game will think this is the best idea ever.... i hate those people

This game is $10. That’s $10 to hear the same joke over and over again, $10 that could be spent on a KFC lunch which is much more enjoyable and probably won’t make you hate the gaming community. If you want a random glitchee experiment that won’t cost you money just wait till YouTube changes their layout.

0/10 would not even torrent

When you first play this game, you may be like: ''Damn give me back my money''. But when you start playing it more and and do some stuff, well....you keep saying ''Damn give me back my money'' but in the very deep of ourselves, we know we love it. Its just a game to derp around if bored, lot of thinks to explore, really funny game.

I used to recommend this game, but now, after like an hour of playing it, you get really bored of just walking around and smashing things! Sure I might play it once in a while but I do not recommend you buy this if you get bored of fast games easily!
