No news is goose news

One of the most hotly-anticipated games was not, you might have noticed, on show at E3. Where was it? Is it okay? Should we worry? Are our dreams dashed? What am I supposed to do now? How could this happen to us? Is this what we deserve? Steady on! Relax. Breath in, hold for two, and out. It’s fine: Untitled Goose Game is still coming.

One can only imagine that developers House House (who previously made Push Me Pull You) have been constantly interrupted this past week by well-wishers bringing them soup, Lucozade, and grapes, assuming that they’d fallen poorly. Don’t worry! Here, take a breath and watch that wonderful 2017 announcement trailer again:

I cannot stop laughing at this absolute bastard of a goose. It’s a stealth game, obviously, but one starring terrible waterfowl which disrupts, bullies, and robs innocent villagefolk to serve its goosey machinations. In this video, the goose is largely arranging a picnic for itself – but also spitefully ruining a few things. Wonderful.

But what’s the news? The lads of House House tweeted today:

That’s good enough for me. RELAX!

This is my final news post of a 12-day working week which has included two 5am finishes so I’m posting what makes me happy, and what makes me happy is that goose. See you in hell!

Disclosure: I’m… I wouldn’t say I’m friends with the House House lads, because I don’t know if one of them will ever forgive me for squeezing a great glob of mayonnaise into his mouth, but I do know and like them and have shared an Airbnb with them. But really, that mayonnaise play, just disgraceful. I was not polite about it either.

    If there is indeed a remake or sequel to Top Gun, maybe the goose could cross over.

    Geez Alice, why didn’t you just kick his dog while you were at it?

      These are the kind of experiences one must have to truly understand the mind of the goose, a swirl of constant, uncaused malice.

    “Well done. Not only did you kill the five guests have a picnic you have acted as an agent of terror and grief.”
