I’m so very right here for a recreation that allows you to commandeer a goose whose solely goal in life is to be a complete shit.
That is what you are getting in “Untitled Goose Sport,” which is coming in 2018 from Home Home. An prolonged trailer highlights the assorted methods your plucky, little waterfowl may cause hassle.
Your goose seems to be charged with hassling unsuspecting people. Within the trailer, the goal is a groundskeeper and your objectives embrace “get the groundskeeper moist” and “rake within the lake.” Even mundane objectives, like “get into the backyard” contain mischief — on this case, swiping the poor groundskeeper’s radio, which ends up in him opening the gate to verify what occurred.
There’s additionally apparently a button that allows you to simply honk annoyingly. That is a win by itself.
This untitled goose recreation seems to be an environmental puzzle recreation at coronary heart, with a give attention to utilizing the instruments offered by the world round you to finish a listing of actions. How and why a goose is waddling round with a written out to-do listing is past me, but it surely’s finest to not ask questions right here. Simply go along with it.
The comedy appears to jot down itself right here, although the sport’s success or failure will finally rely upon how a lot flexibility you need to futz with the world round you. It definitely seems to be like there’s quite a lot of open-endedness in the best way you’ll be able to sort out these challenges, however time will inform.
The truth that the sport is coming from Home Home is encouraging. The small indie studio is thought finest for its utterly weird multiplayer recreation Push Me Pull You, wherein two groups of two gamers apiece every take management of a fleshy, human-esque centipede with heads and arms at each ends. They then compete in a soccer-like sport.
It is a inventive and completely weird online game, however nice enjoyable to play. One way or the other, this unreleased goose recreation appears barely extra grounded — although we’re solely seeing one small chunk of it on this trailer. Who is aware of what else our goose good friend can rise up to?
One factor we do know: it seems to be like there’s cooperative play. A short snippet on the finish of the trailer reveals not one however two geese honking and tormenting the groundskeeper.
There is not any launch date extra particular than “2018” simply but, however holy crap this seems to be like a grand time. You’ll be able to sustain with subsequent bulletins on the sport’s web site, proper right here.
