As is the case when anything gets popular, there's already loads of different (and often terrible) Goat Simulator clones on the App Store, but soon we'll be able to play the real deal. In goat simulator, you play as a goat, and simulate being a goat. It's basically just a supremely ridiculous physics sandbox game where you play as a goat. Here's the trailer from when it launched on PC:

This was all announced at GDC Europe this morning, where Coffee Stain Studios also announced they made back the money invested in Goat Simulator in "ten minutes." Take that as you will. Goat Simulator has been a surprising hit, and, I've got no doubts it'll make a similar splash on iOS. Rampaging around as a goat is way more fun than you'd think it would be.

    • Firedog5698

      I hope it doesn't need constant internet

      • Stormourner

        PPPPPPPPPPPFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTT!!!!!

      • ImJPaul

        Constant internet connection doesn't effect me because I always have internet connection so Idc. Never saw the big deal with that.

      • TheNoobOfTheCentury

        The reason everyone hates constant internet connection is because phones and ipads are portable, so you should be able to go anywhere, access, and use the game. And MOST games only have constant connection to avoid pirates, so they use internet ONLY to prevent piracy, so theyre basically making everyone pay the price (not a pun) of being on wifi because of pirates.

    Bummed Revolution didn't originate this based on the Goat from Broken Sword. But this looks awesomely hilarious!

  • Lemmonz

  • Adams Immersive

    I stopped playing this game long ago. About 10 hours. I had to sleep. But I'll get back to it soon! I cannot resist its bizarre cross-species GTA experience.

    (But I hope they fix the breaking glass FX of the Mac version before heading to iOS! I know--it's beta for now.)

  • thestapler

    yes please.

  • ScotDamn

    That video is hilarious.
