Goat Simulator coming to Steam for full release

Goat Simulator coming to Steam for full release

Starting life as a Global Game Jam entry, the video of Goat Simulator's alpha footage currently has more than 2.3 million views.

Goat Simulator is making the transition from game jam prototype to fully fledged release title following huge demand from the internet.

The game, which appears to resemble a skateboarding game but with the player plopped into the hooves of a goat and asked to cause as much destruction as possible, came to light last week when an alpha gameplay video started being circulated. The video currently has around 2.3 million views.

Developed my Coffee Stain Studios, the team behind Sanctum, the alpha footage video's description noted that they were 'just playing around a bit with programming stuff' and that 'this is not our next big IP'.

The title was originally just the studio's entry into the Global Game Jam but the team has been inundated with pleas to turn it into a full release. The description on the alpha video has subsequently been followed up with 'NEVERMIND ITS A REAL GAME NOW.'

Goat Simulator will be launching on Steam around the Spring and is currently available for pre-order for $9.99. The pre-order will also allow access to the beta once this becomes available.

'Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. It was made in a couple of weeks so don't expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats,' reads a disclaimer on the game's site. 'In fact, you're better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you'd spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.'

Is this game for Billy no-mates? Does it include pictures of Goatse? (too far?)
