In addition to Mac and Windows PC, Australian studio House House’s upcoming Untitled Goose Game will make its exclusive console debut on Nintendo Switch. The game will be published by Panic Inc, which also published Campo Santo’s Firewatch.
The premise of Untitled Goose Game is simple: “it’s a lovely morning in the village and you are a horrible goose.” The goal is to cause as much chaos as possible. Players control a goose wandering around a tiny farm, looking for trouble while trying to avoid the farmer. It’s part-sandbox, part-stealth game, and while players can simply explore the farm and get into shenanigans on their own, they can also complete seemingly mundane objectives, like getting the farmer to put on his sunhat or having a picnic, which follow puzzle-like sequences. The soft aesthetics of the game serving as a hilarious backdrop to the goose’s mischief. It’s simple, yet charming.
A new gameplay trailer hints at a greater overarching plot for the troublemaking goose, while also showing off more pranks and more of the lovely, idyllic rural setting.
The game is still set for release in early 2019. For more information, check out Untitled Goose Game’s website.
