Today you can buy the game from Green Man Goating and you can be a goat."

"We have always been huge fans of wrecking stuff, scraggy chin beards, and of course the goating community, so are proud to be supporting the launch of Goat Simulator," bleated Darren Cairns, EVP Marketing at Green Man Goating.
