Today the game known as Untitled Goose Game was given an official release date. It’ll arrive on September 20, 2019 for each of its three different launch platforms. Untitled Goose Game was developed by the folks at House House, the makers of another very, very strange game by the name of Push Me Pull You. In Untitled Goose Game, you play the part of a Goose causing trouble for humans – and yes, that goose is carrying a knife.
As a goose, you can steal things from humans. You can pick up a bar of soap, you can move a sock across the screen to a well, and drop said sock down a well. You can in general be the goose of which you’ve always dreamed. You can also honk. As the official description suggests, “It’s a lovely morning in the village and you are a horrible goose.”
Untitled Goose Game was developed by House House and published by Panic. It’ll be launched on the Epic Games Store for MacOS and Windows PC on September 20, 2019. It’ll also be released on the official Nintendo store for Nintendo Switch on September 20, 2019 – the same day!
UPDATE: This game has been priced, as well! While it’ll usually be approximately $20 USD, it’ll have a limited-time launch price of around $15 for all three launch platforms.
This game may remind you of the other most unexpected animal-based game of all time, Goat Simulator (2014). That game was created as a joke – so was the game to which we refer in the next paragraph: Donut County. It would seem that the main difference between these and the Untitled Goose Game is this: This goose game has never, EVER, been a joke.
If you recognize the aesthetic in Untitled Goose Game, you’re not alone. This is one of several games that’ve been released in the last several years that use broad, flat, friendly colors to represent all manner of elements onscreen. If you look at the game Donut County, you’ll find another game in this sort of aesthetic genre. Donut County was developed by indie designer Ben Esposito and published by Annapurna Interactive.
