Goat Simulator Launch Trailer Ridicules Dead Island

By   /   Mar 27, 2014

Game, well “game,” Goat Simulator has received a launch trailer that mocks a well-known Dead Island clip, which shows a scene going backwards to a piano tune. It also has some gameplay, well, you know.

In the clip, a goat is laid out dead on the ground, then time rewinds to reveal what dealt this fatal blow. Spoiler: It was a gas station explosion.

There are also some snippets of the goat dicking around. It knocks over tables and bothers people during a workout. Oh, it also dons a jetpack and flies around.

Basically, the entire game is a spoof. Even its Steam page reveals that bugs are kept in intentionally for hilarity purposes.

Sadly, Goat Simulator won’t have any multiplayer. In a rare serious note, the game’s website states:

We are using NVIDIA PhysX and Apex for our in-game physics, which gives us amazing and realistic physics, but it would synchronise terribly in multiplayer. With multiplayer, we’d have to remove 90% of the physics, all destructible objects and a lot of our favorite features.

Goat Simulator will release on Steam on April 1, 2014 and that’s not a joke. While it is an actual game now, it originally did start as just a parody, which has since spun out of control.

Developer Coffee Stain Studios is also known for their Sanctum franchise.
