Untitled Goose Game is coming soon, very soon in fact. On Sept. 20, you will be able to play as a mischievous Goose who doesn’t care for your social norms. Feel like getting into that garden? Figure out a way to do it. Is the gardener giving you some attitude? Steal his hat!
It’s a lovely morning in the village and you are a horrible goose. Untitled Goose Game is a slapstick-stealth-sandbox, where you are a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village. Make your way around town, from back gardens to the high street shops to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.
Look, it’s been a solid year for games. We’ve had the likes of Astral Chain and Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Borderlands 3, Sekiro, Apex Legends, The Resident Evil 2 remake. All great games, and a fun way to spend some time, but not a single goose to be found in any of them. House House has noticed this lack of goose related antics, and are bringing us the sleeper hit of the year with Untitled Goose Game.
Untitled Goose Game takes place in an idyllic village. As the local nuisance, it is your job to ruin everyone’s day. You are the great blight in this picturesque place, and you need to live up to your reputation. Does it sound like a pretty perfect diversion in the never-ending torrent of murderous violence I have been getting up to in games lately and feeling like robbing a hat or hiding someone’s keys? Want to honk at someone then hide in their garbage while they search around for you like an idiot? Then this is the game for you.
Untitled Goose Game releases on Sept. 20 for PC through the Epic Games Store and the Nintendo Switch.
