The weather report I saw go through my Twitter feed said, “Not as cold tonight! Lows of -8!” I had to laugh; when did -8 become “not as cold”?! I guess since our lows at night started regularly falling to -15. Anyway, between the grey skies, cold temperatures and really horrible news headlines, I was feeling the need for a bit of silly humor this evening, which the children supplied.
They have been begging my husband for a goat (or preferably multiple goats) since we told them we were moving out to the country. Their pleas have fallen on deaf ears thus far as the man of the household has declared our property a goat-free zone.
They have dealt with this setback by downloading this hilarious app which they showed me and which I will highlight here now for your amusement. It’s called “Goat Simulator”:
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!
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.
- 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
I was laughing until tears ran down my cheeks as eldest daughter read the description to me, especially when she read the part about “You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true!” Who comes up with this stuff? Ah, a much needed laugh…
But we’re all still holding out hope that our possible future pole barn will someday have possible future real-not-simulated goats. So I’ll end with a cute video that our youngest loves – fainting goats!
