There hasn’t been a whole lot of competition in 2016, however Goat Simulator ($2.99) is still by far the best simulation of everyone’s favourite horned mammal (don’t write in, Rhinoceros fans) currently on the App Store. While the game doesn’t strive for a realistic representation of goat culture, the ability to flail unassuming bystanders around with your tongue, defy the laws of physics through a wondrous trampoline, and best of all shape-shift into a whale makes for a unique experience, to say the least. While the holiday season tends to be dominated by lesser animals like reindeers, Coffee Stain Studios want to remind you that goats can celebrate too, and so Goat MMO Simulator ($6.99) has received a relevant update titled ‘Winter, or Whatever’, with a sackful of neat features to make the game even more festive and fun.
In the update for the game, which is now titled Goat MMO Simulator: WoW (wow indeed, Coffee Stain Studios), there is a whole new free level to explore with your four legged adventurer. The winter-clad land of Västerås is allegedly the ‘biggest free level since free levels was a thing’, and I can’t help but blindly agree with such a modest claim. With a new elf class, almost twenty quests (but not quite) with some crazy challenges such as inventing electricity and fight a forest, plus the usual wacky winter camaraderie that makes you yearn for life on the farm, there’s a lot to do in Goat MMO Simulator‘s newest update. If you have the game, download the Winter, or Whatever level for free now, and let us know in the comments where you’d like to see Goat Simulator go to next. My money’s on No Goat’s Sky, with procedurally generated goats to lick, but who knows.
