Goat Simulator getting new DLC called GoatZ for Linux, Mac, Windows PC, iOS, and Android

goatz_dlc_coming_for_goat_simulator_may_7th

Coffee Stain Studios have just #announced more DLC content for Goat Simulator, now themed with #zombies. Titled “GoatZ,” the $4.99 DLC is expected to launch May 7th for #Linux, Mac, Windows PC, iOS, and Android.

In a recent release for GoatZ, Coffee Stain mentioned the previously planned Goat Simulator MMO expansion to be the last game add-on. Now the studio revealed what it calls an “avalanche” of requests for more DLC. Coffee Stain explains, “so, with that said, here you. Zombies.”.

The developer has also requested the help of Gone North Games for the GoatZ expansion. This is the studio that worked on the title A Story About My Uncle, that Coffee Stain ended up publishing.

Even the name GoatZ is an obvious resemblance to a well known zombie game, Dean Hall’s DayZ. While the upcoming release seems similar to Garry Newman’s Rust. With that in mind, Coffee Stain said today, “Garry and Dean, please don’t sue us. Be cool.”

GoatZ features list:

  • Mandatory crafting system because everyone else is doing it
  • Zombies that bug out. There’s a pun here about actual living bugs, but we’re not going to bother
  • You can craft anything in the world, as long as it’s one of the half dozen weapons in the game
  • Zombies, because this is a zombie game, remember?
  • A pretty big new map with some stuff in it
  • Completely realistic survival mode where you have to eat every damn five minutes to survive because Dean Hall & Garry Newman said so
  • Tons of unlockable new goats with special powers

Goat Simulator to become an MMO for Linux, Mac and Windows PC?

One of the most delightfully #weirdgames to come out this year is Goat Simulator, which will now receive a #freeexpansion later this month, transforming the #release into a massively multiplayer online game, developer Coffee Stain Studios revealed today. The sociopathic goat rampaging through a small town known for its slapstick physics, intentionally awful glitches, and predilection for explosions.

Why fantasy? Why multiplayer? Why is a walking microwave one of the choices for character class (the others being Tank, Magician, Hunter, “Rouge,” and plain ol’ goat)? Looking at the debut trailer, it seems all the madcap physics and bizarre bugs are present. The level cap is 101, sheep and goat factions are at war, and there are mermaids.

Actually, this is probably the only scene that matters. This is everything you need to know about Goat Simulator:

The MMO-styled Goat MMO Simulator release launches on November 20 as free downloadable content through Steam for those who already own the original title on Windows PC. Goat MMO Simulator will also be playable on Linux and Mac with full controller support.

Almost 1 million' sales for Goat Simulator

Goat Simulator sales almost at 1 million

Of all the many “simulator” games, Goat Simulator stands out as one of the silliest and craziest to catch heat. That’s reflected by the #gamesales to date of “almost 1 million,” as announced by #CoffeeStainStudio’s Armin Ibrisagic at #GDCEurope this morning. It’s no surprise, then, that the studio’s now working on bringing the game to iOS and Android.

To ram those figures home, Ibrisagic said Coffee Stain made back the money it invested into Goat Simulator in “ten minutes.” Perhaps crazier, the game generated more revenue in four months than the studio had made in the previous four years.

Goat Simulator represents a surreal and unexpected success for the Sanctum studio, which, as Ibrisagic explained, approached the game as no more than a light-hearted change of pace after working on a far more serious tower-defense series for years. The moment Coffee Stain realized it had to make Goat Simulator into a real game was when its debut trailer racked up a million views. The studio diverted all employees to working on it and rapidly started adding content to it ahead of its – no kidding – April 1 release. That extra content included a giraffe – after all, according to Ibrisagic, all animals are goats.

Goat Simulator set unleash in North American stores this July

Goat Simulator set release retail box in North American stores this July

Goat Simulator has been available as a #Steam download since April 1, but this is a physical game about physical things getting physically wrecked by a very physical goat; doesn’t it deserve a physical release? #DeepSilver thinks so, which is why it’s acquired North American distribution rights from #developer Coffee Stain Studios.

You will be able to pick up a boxed copy of the game at participating retail stores starting in mid-July. Thankfully, while goats are known to eat just about anything, this even-toed ungulate will go easy on your cash. The boxed copy – like its Steam counterpart (Linux, Mac, Windows) – will cost $9.99 (currently on sale for $7.99).

Of course, the goat-in-a-game-shop news might sound familiar to those living across the pond; it’s been available in UK stores since May.  No word on what platforms will be included in the boxed version.

Deep Silver Joins the Funny Farm, Acquires the North American Distribution Rights for Goat Simulator for PC

– The Baaaadest Video Game Simulator Showcases Goats Gone Mad With Ridiculous Head Butts, Jetpacks and A Super Sticky Tongue –

Larkspur, Calif., June 27, 2014 – Today Deep Silver announced it has acquired the North American PC distribution rights for Goat Simulator from Coffee Stain Studios – the most unique goat simulator of the goat simulator genre and quite possibly the funniest game in the history of games, ever, forever.

Available in participating retail stores for $9.99 by mid-July, the title includes the patch 1.1 content with new goats, the ability to ride a bike and skateboard, a new map and local four-player split screen multiplayer mode. New game modes include Capture the Flag, Racing Mode, and Ragdoll Hockey.

Supporting Steam Workshop, Goat Simulator players can create their own goats, levels, missions and more. While the main character may get hit by a truck, head butt a car until it explodes or perform endless other acts of rampage with style, rest assured that the goat will never die and a humans’ desire to destroy things can forever be fulfilled. The slow motion controls, exaggerated physics, ridiculous bugs and random events in the small, yet dense maps make it easy to enjoy this sandbox goat simulator. Strap on the jetpack, jump on a trampoline and head butt your way into video game absurdity with Goat Simulator.

Goat Simulator Gets a New Launch Trailer

Goat Simulator, the upcoming #release from Coffee Stain Studios, received a new launch trailer.

The #game will be available digitally on April 1 for PC. Players can pre-order the game for $10 on Steam or through the Goat Simulator website. A Mac or #Linux version is a possibility if enough demand is created.

While it may sound like just another simulator game, one look at the launch trailer proves Goat Simulator is far from the average simulation. The simulation genre has a history of being a realistic portrayal of the thing they are simulating. Titles such as SimCity, RollerCoaster Tycoon and Flight Simulator pride themselves on their representations of what it would be like to manage a city, control vehicles and more.

Goat Simulator is more of a farce of games like Street Cleaner Simulator and Farming Simulator. Unlike those games where the objective is clear, Goat Simulator gives players control of a goat as it launches into objects, racks up combos and flops around with exaggerated ragdoll physics.

Quick Take

The launch trailer for Goat Simulator does a hilarious job at spoofing the acclaimed teaser trailer for the original Dead Island. According to the creator, the game is “broken and stupid” but the player created chaos seems well worth the investment. It will be fun to see players post their gameplay videos, filled with as much mayhem and ridiculousness as seen in the trailer.
