Skövde, Sweden, 11th February. For some reason, the incredibly stupid Youtube video of Goat Simulator alpha footage became a viral hit last week. Now, Coffee Stain Studios are finishing the game and releasing it on PC for Steam sooner than you think.

The new release trailer for Goat Simulator on Steam can be found on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN2QUhaKN2Q

Details:

The Swedish indie company Coffee Stain Studios was bombarded with requests last week to finish the prototype of Goat Simulator into a real game, which they described as “The next-gen goat simulation game you’ve always wanted to play”.

Goat Simulator was inspired from old-school skating games, where, instead of being a skater, you’re a goat, and instead of doing skating tricks, you wreck stuff. Charging into a table and knocking it over yields points, and if you can manage to do it while doing a backflip first and a 360 afterwards, you’ll score even more points.

“We hired a full team of free to play/mobile experts AND psychologists. They all agreed this idea was stupid, so we decided to ship it!” - Anton Westbergh, CEO.

“We’re so stoked to bring Goat Simulator to Steam! It means that we can integrate Steam Leaderboards into the game, and we’re also looking at adding Steam Workshop support so players can customize their experience even more!” - Armin Ibrisagic, Game Designer

“Goats are stupid and no one should play Goat Simulator” - Sheep worldwide

If you can’t wait to goat into the action, you can pre-order the game already at www.goat-simulator.com, which will give you a Steam code and three days early access to the game on Steam!
