In Untitled Goose Game you play as a horrible goose who ruins the lives of everyone in this peaceful town, all to get a bell. The goal of the game is to cause as much mischief as possible using only your ability to grab things and the dedicated honk button. The crimes range from minor theft to assault with intent to kill. You have to control the snakelike neck of the goose to steal a variety of items and use them to wreak havoc on the innocent populus. My favorite section is where you rampage through a miniature city like an enormous Goosezilla, and topple buildings. Every time you complete a section it opens up the next area and a shortcut to the previous area as in some situations you have to journey to previous sections to gather weapons in your war against humanity, or have a picnic. After this game was released goose related crime rose at an astonishing rate and goose violence was rampant. A real life goose shattered a taxicab window and made international news for his despicable acts. Initial reviews of this game were mixed between the greatest creation on Earth and Heaven’s gift to humanity and geese alike. The game made by House House and produced by Panic, it has only been released for a month and it has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide topping the charts in Australia, the UK, and the United States. All in all, this game about a goose ruining people’s day is somehow extremely popular, and I like it.
