Goat Simulator: is this the greatest video game of all time?
Even before its feverishly anticipated release, Goat Simulator is being talked about as the greatest video game of all time.
Explosions; mayhem; farm animals: this extraordinary game has it all. Take 24 and swap Jack Bauer with a goat and this is what's left: Goat Simulator.
Goat Simulator will be available on PC and was created by developers Coffee Stain Studios. It is scheduled for release in early April. Some rumours suggest it will have a multiplayer function, allowing players to compete simultaneously online in a "herd mode". According to its developers: "Goat Simulator isn't really about what it's like to be a goat. It's about being a really fast goat that wrecks stuff."
Reception within the gaming world to Goat Simulator's trailer has bordered on the hysterical, with many gamers noting similarities between Goat Simulator and Dead Island, a game that also featured an iconic launch trailer.
Goat Simulator will be officially released on Tuesday April 1.
