Have you played Sanctum and its sequel from Coffee Stain Studios? If you had, you’d have noticed a wealth of potential. The obviously very talented bunch there knows what they’re doing, and their next title could well become the Game Of All Time.
For funsies, they’re making a goat simulator..but not just any Goat simulator. Nope, they’re making a next-gen one. Ever wondered what it would be like to be a goat? Of course you have; they’re magical animals. who wouldn’t want to see what it’s like peering out at the world from behind those beady eyes.
According to Coffee Stain Studios, they’re“playing around a bit with programming stuff” and Goat simulator “not our next IP.” It really bloody well should be though, because this looks amazing. It’s such a fantastic, realistic depiction of the every day life of a goat – and it’s got people quite interested. Interested enough that the company is thinking more about what to do with the thing.
It was cobbled together for the Global Game Jam, but there’s been an overwhelming interest in the simulator.
“When I woke up today my video with the damn goat had 100,000 views, which is like more than all our other real game trailers the last year combined,” Armin Ibrisagic, Coffee Stain Studios PR manager told Vice. “So yeah, we’re really stoked that people have shown such an interest in our pet (heh, pet) project!”
"Now that people have shown such an interest in it, but we don’t want to promise anything…we’re going to listen to people’s opinions in the coming couple of days and see how it goats,” he said.
