I hope I’m not being fooled early here, but Coffee Stain Studios’ Goat Simulator has been confirmed for an April 1st release date via Steam.

Goat Simulator has already gained a cult following, quite clearly for being a simulator about being a goat. This lo-fi slice of gaming oddness first cropped up on the internet last month, before going viral. Coffee Stain Studios admitted they were just playing around but, having seen interest skyrocket, Goat Simulator has become its next IP….

The original alpha gameplay video of Goat Simulator carried the description, "We're just playing around a bit with programming stuff, this is not our next big IP, calm yourselves journalists." This calming effect clearly didn’t work, as gamers across the world were eager to lick lamp posts. Just a week later a new video popped up, saying "OKAY INTERNET YOU WIN, IT LOOKS LIKE GOAT SIMULATOR IS OUR NEXT IP."

While it might not be a AAA title, it’s most assuredly BAAA. Goat Simulator is inspired by the old-school skating games such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater. Instead of playing a skater though, you take the reins of a goat. The objective for players is to smash and lick things, racking up combos and points.

Goat Simulator will be a PC-only release, arriving on Steam April 1, for those gamers itching to get their hands on some rampaging livestock. There’ll be full Steam Workshop support including, so mod fans can create their own maps and Nigerian Dwarf goats.

Will you be getting your goat on come April?

I don't think it'll be able to beat Woodcutter Simulator 2013 though, that one broke all sorts of barriers in the gaming industry.

That's the best part, there is no point to it. You get to be a goat and hunt down human using furniture as weapons, what more could you want? :)
