April – a time of trickery, jokes and… Goats? Here’s your gaming wrap-up for this month!
- Windows: April 1st (Now Available)
Starting off April with a bang is the Steam-distributed “Goat Simulator”. This game is a shamelessly presented 3rd person experience with a very simple concept – you get to play as a goat. Filled with wacky physics, bugs and general hilarity, Goat Simulator is a game that is there purely just-for-fun. The official description of the game from the creators “Coffee Stain Studios” is as follows:
“Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. It was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.”
