The bonkers Goat Simulator finally has a release date

And it's probably the most appropriate date you could think of

If you're a PC gamer you may be aware of Goat Simulator. Now it's actually happening, and has a release date.

For the uninitiated, Goat Simulator was created by Sweden-based Coffee Stain Studios as a joke during a game jam session.

The joke went down well and led to calls for Goat Simulator to become a proper game with a Steam release. Which is understandable.

Now it has officially been confirmed that the game will be coming to Steam on April 1, which is about as fitting as you can get.

Lacking any real plot, the aim of Goat Simulator is to, well, essentially be a goat. You can wander around, freely exploring the game world, barging into stuff. Think of it as a Tony Hawk game, only with a goat.

"Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game," its creator says on the game's website. "It was made in a couple of weeks so don't expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats.

"In fact, you're better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you'd spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat."

You can pre-order Goat Simulator now for $9.99. We checked - a real goat costs between $75 and £350. So you're probably best going with the game.
