untitled goose game

given that it's cross-platform, and the most hotly anticipated goose-oriented game of the year, i figure it deserves its own thread

nb: this game is not titled Untitled Goose Game, it is a goose game which is currently untitled.

Purchased! And it's *totally* called "Untitled Goose Game."

"I think our official stance is that [Untitled Goose Game is] not the title of the game," McMaster says. "The game is untitled. The game has no title. In really boring terms, it's just the thing everyone calls it now. But also we never found anything that excited us more.

...It started as a pragmatic decision because we had to release that trailer, and when it got way more attention than we were expecting we had already publicly said the game was untitled. There's no appropriate title for the game, so it's going to stay untitled forever

d/led. i'm going in.

*HONK*

Fox Pithole Britain (Noodle Vague), Friday, 20 September 2019 16:33 (four weeks ago) link

If they'd wanted it to just be a description and not a title, they should not have capitalized each word.

jmm, Friday, 20 September 2019 16:38 (four weeks ago) link

Saw the trailer for this today, it looks awesome. HONK HONK.

It's pretty awesome, dunno how long it'll last but I am a baaaaad goose

it is good, i'm guessing it's probably not got a ton of replay value but it has made me lol quite a bit and i'm pacing myself so's not to finish it in one evening

also HONK

Fox Pithole Britain (Noodle Vague), Friday, 20 September 2019 19:05 (four weeks ago) link

it's cute

i got past the first chunk but i don't know how i got him to put on the sun hat. that just happened.

i'm stuck on a couple of the goals for the second chunk

na (NA), Friday, 20 September 2019 19:15 (four weeks ago) link

got past the first list without doing the sunhat, took a break for the night

Mostly watched my daughter play through the first level, which she was more or less able to do (not being much of a game player) albeit without figuring out how to get him to switch hats. Game is of course ridiculous. And hey, if they didn't want to call it Untitled Goose Game then maybe it shouldn't say Untitled Goose Game in formal capitalized font on the title screen! But yeah, can't imagine this game being that long, but it's good chill fun.

it feels very of a kind with donut county imo

I’ve rarely seen our three year old laugh as much as he did tonight, watching his big brother play this. Especially when he made that naughty goose pick up the sandwiches and throw them in the pond!

this is fun. i'm at the golden bell part which is more stressful than the rest of the game so far.

overcome your stress by remembering that you are a horrible goose

I got through the high street part, it was hilariously fun, but I'm trying to draw out the fun by only playing every couple of days. would o/w be like mainlining a milkshake.

Australia is too suburban for this vibe. I bet they're just fans of British comedy, that is a common type down here.

There is so much horrible joy in being a horrible goose.

When I play this, for all its simplicity I think of all the potential. You can migrate! You can be hunted! You can descend upon a golf course and shit all over the place! In fact, for the sequel they should give the goose a dedicated shit button.

Oh, here's a thing I read recently:
https://gaming.tumblr.com/post/187842058055/indie-game-spotlight-untitled-goose-game-oh

If you could have the goose cross over into any cinematic or game universe, what would it be and why?
It would be nice to see the goose chase Postman Pat over a hedgerow. That era of British children’s television has been a huge influence on the game.

glasses boy is my spirit animal and I feel very bad for tormenting him repeatedly and laughing hysterically for hours

a passing spacecadet, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 17:05 (three weeks ago) link

It took me a while to find the "wrong" glasses for him so he was down on the ground feeling around for like 15 minutes and I felt bad

yes, it was fun seeing & exploiting their different approaches to neighbourly pettiness

When I play this, for all its simplicity I think of all the potential. You can migrate! You can be hunted! You can descend upon a golf course and shit all over the place! In fact, for the sequel they should give the goose a dedicated shit button.

I had thought it would be more open world and just go about your day being horrible in whatever ways you can think of (a la Goat Simulator) but it probably works best as it is tbh

would have liked a "hiss" button though, for that amusing lisping hiss geese do, or Greylag geese anyway: thhhh...

a passing spacecadet, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 17:39 (three weeks ago) link

I was kayaking down the Chicago River with my kid the other day, and when get back to the dock it's covered with geese (and goose poop), and this one alpha goose just turns to us as we approach and hisses, like a total asshole.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 17:46 (three weeks ago) link

I really REALLY hope that if/when they make a sequel they call it Titled Goose Game just to really fuck with people

also pls do not fuck with real-life geese if you can help it, one of em almost killed one of my college instructors

Untitled Geese Game, imo

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 18:21 (three weeks ago) link

only if they add competitive multiplayer

Simon H., Tuesday, 24 September 2019 18:36 (three weeks ago) link

finished the main game. haven't checked out the bonus stuff yet. i want to replay though because i feel like i got through some levels (particularly the golden bell) via brute force (i.e. just running away) instead of stealth/intelligence.

na (NA), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 14:41 (three weeks ago) link

the flapping wings button doesn't come into play at all really right?

na (NA), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 16:32 (three weeks ago) link

I mean, if you press the button, you open your wings, making you appear larger and more intimidating.

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 16:33 (three weeks ago) link

It's there to make you feel more like a goose.

Actually, in our timeline, a goose chased Thatcher out of office, spurring a Bennite revolution and the irreparable decline of the Tory party. The villagers are Marxists.

"But first, I had to figure out what kind of goose I was. There aren’t a lot of large all-white geese with pink bills. I figured it was either the North American Snow Goose or the domesticated form of the Greylag Goose. The shape of the animal and its particular association with humans made it clear I would be piloting the latter."

koogs, Thursday, 26 September 2019 08:40 (three weeks ago) link

But first I had to figure out whether this game set in England starred an American goose or an English goose.

I think among the best aspects of this game are the fact that there is no time limit and that there are no real repercussions. You can just take your sweet goose time.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 28 September 2019 02:14 (two weeks ago) link

Can't get the groundskeeper to show up. Grabbed the radio, which turned on, walked around a bit ... turned the sprinkler on ... I know I'm bad at video games but I've never been stymied this early on in a game.
