A curious trailer made its way into our inbox today and has definitely piqued our interest. It’s for a new 3rd-person shooter called Trigger Fist by developer Lake Effect Applications. It’s got a modern military style reminiscent of recent Call of Duty or Battlefield games, which admittedly is getting pretty long in the tooth. However, Trigger Fist packs a surprise: wearable goats. Yes, like goats as in the farm animals. See for yourself:

I have no idea how the goats factor into all of this, it looks like they might act as the “flag” in Capture the Flag game types if I had to take a guess. But I’ll tell you one thing: I’m eager to find out more (and I think they're pretty cute). There’s literally no other information besides what you can see in the video, but we’re reaching out to Lake Effect to hear more and we’ll let you know what we find out. I also have a history of getting excited for upcoming online shooters just to be disappointed when they finally release, either because the execution is poor or the online community is lacking. Something to keep in mind.

One thing we do know is that Trigger Fist has been submitted to Apple already, so if your interest is piqued as ours is then we’ll likely be seeing the game hit soon.

    Was literally just saying to myself when when WHEN... will we finally get a wearable goat in a 3PS. In my mind its always been a chocolate and peanut butter conundrum. Also, why "Trigger Fist" and not, oh, I don't know..."Goat Coat"? Seriously, you should be really ramping that up, makes your game unique.

    How is a twitch shooter even remotely playable on a touch device?

      trust me, this plays like an absolute dream - the controls are the best part about Trigger Fist!

      I should know, I made it!

        Then can you please explain the goat thing and the general animal motive running all over the game? Looks like you got kind of a crazy sort of team fortress in 3rd person thing going on. Is it strictly multiplayer?

        In the game type called "Sacred Goat" the goat acts as the objective.  Each team tries to hold and protect the goat and the first team to 90 seconds wins!
        It really is the most fun, but only by a small margin.  Every match is fast-paced and exciting.

        Would you perhaps tell me when exactly its coming out? Like date and approximate time of day? I'm starting to get tired constantly checking the AppStore to see if it's out...thx

        Thanks, I appreciate the info. So it is a sort of capture the flag thing like he article speculated. This looks fun, man. Looking forward to it.

    The gameplay looks spectacular though I worry about playing a shooter with touch controls. Will reserve judgement until it releases. Oh and I should think the goats are obvious everyone. The human isn't WEARING a goat... The goat is piloting a human. It's common sense...

  • juls363

    From what ican see there seems to be no up and down aiming.. Hmm maybe this is why the developer said the controls are better? I'm looking forward to the game.

      I watched the video again and it looks like your right! I'm wondering how your going to get headshots...

      • Yourplague

        Lol headshots or incredibly hard on any iOS online 3PS so it shouldn't effect the gameplay too much
