There is something just so classically Australian in the humour of Untitled Goose Game, from game developer House House as it lets players become a goose-on-the-loose in an unsuspecting village.
You play as a Goose who is a bit of a miscreant and your objective is to make your way around town, from peoples’ back gardens to the high street shops to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.
If that doesn't sound fun enough you the game now features a local two-player mode with, yes, two mischievous geese, so now you can distract and disarm all at once. This new version just launched as a free update which is even better.
If you haven't heard of Untitled Goose Game then you are in for a bit of a treat. The game has received multiple awards since 2019 including recognition from BAFTA and the Golden Joystick Awards, as well as “Game of the Year” accolades in the Game Developers Choice Awards and 23rd Annual D.I.C.E. Awards.
To date the digital version of the game, which originally released in September 2019, has sold over one million copies, that's over one million people wanting to cause havoc as the Goose with attitude!
