“It’s a lovely morning in the village and you are a horrible goose.”
Oh, hello. We are House House. We spent the last three years making a game where you play as a goose. Untitled Goose Game is a slapstick-stealth-sandbox, where you are a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village. Make your way around town, from peoples’ back gardens to the high street shops to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day. Now Untitled Goose Game is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass on December 17.
Geese are quite troublesome
It seems that people who live near geese have a very difficult relationship with them. Lots of people have told us that geese have chased them around the park, or that they have been honked at by a goose on their way home. We aren’t biologists. We can’t say why geese are like this. But it seems to us that being a goose and doing these things must be fun.
Meet the goose
Untitled Goose Game features a horrible goose. Here is a photo of them:
Note: the entire animal has two colors. Why is this?
Look at their nice soft body. Their little orange feet and beak. Their blank expression. What is the goose thinking?
When you play the game, you are the goose. It is your job to do the things that geese do. To honk, to flap your wings, to crane your long white neck.
And of course, it’s also your job to make life difficult for the people around you. This means the goose will be stealing from people, honking at people, playing pranks and causing suffering. You are a bad goose.
People have to put up with the goose
The game takes place in a small village, full of characters who must live alongside this goose. They all just want to get on with their day. Imagine a groundskeeper tending to a local garden.
Enter the goose.
Now the groundskeeper’s life is miserable. The goose has taken the groundskeeper’s trowel. The groundskeeper can no longer work. The goose has turned on the sprinklers, and the groundskeeper is now wet. The goose that loves to steal has won and the groundskeeper has lost.
The name of the game
At one point we really wanted to find a nice name for this game. We thought long and hard about which name would sound best. But people kept telling us they liked the game how it was. They didn’t mind that the Goose Game was Untitled. So, we just gave up. The game doesn’t have a name. It’s an Untitled Goose Game.
We are very happy that our game is ready for you to play. We’ll be running a special launch discount for two weeks after release, during which the game be 25% off. Get ready to honk on December 17.
