“OKAY INTERNET YOU WIN, IT LOOKS LIKE GOAT SIMULATOR IS OUR NEXT IP.” reads the description for the above video as the developers behind the viral hit Goat Simulator finally cave and plan to release the game on Steam!
Earlier this month Coffee Stain Studios released a video showing off alpha gameplay video of a game they called Goat Simulator the video saw a user controlled goat running around a suburban street causing mayhem, smashing up everything in its way, other than a car, it didn’t do so well with a car.
The video which you can see below, had over 2m views with everyone crying out for the game to become a real thing. Sadly, it didn’t look likely as the video description read: “We’re just playing around a bit with programming stuff, this is not our next big IP, calm yourselves journalists.”
Well it looks like us journalists won as Goat Simulator will be seeing a Steam release in Spring with pre-orders of the game open now over at the goat-sim website.
Inspired by old-school skating games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Goat Simulator allows you free roam across a small suburban map but instead of doing tricks on everything you see, you’ll be smashing through fences, and picnic tables as well as bouncing off of trampolines to reach great heights.
Oh and there’s a brand new feature! You can now drag shit around by licking it and making it stick to your tongue, that’s right, you can lick a park bench and chase some poor unsuspecting pedestrian with a bench.
The Steam release will feature leaderboards, and Coffee Stain is looking into adding Steam Workshop support. So if you want to grab a pre-order for the game, head to http://www.goat-simulator.com
