Hear ye hear ye, here's the top releases on Steam from the month of September. As ever, some big names like Marvel and Mafia are on the list, and so are some long-awaited favorites like Spelunky 2 and Serious Sam 4. More interesting though are the weird indie breakout games.

Feature: Honk the system

Have You Played… Untitled Goose Game?

The majority of us try to get through life without any unnecessary conflict. It's a hassle that most can do without. That's why I love games that allow for some tomfoolery. All the fun of being a bit mean, without any of the consequence. Although, I should say that I'm not talking about choosing the renegade option in Mass Effect; I'm talking about some wholesome…

Untitled Goose Game’s vinyl soundtrack is double-grooved for random tracks

The playful piano of Untitled Goose Game will be inscribed in plastic, creating a physical record of the goose's havoc. To hear the piano is to know the crimes it accompanied. The merchmasters at Iam8bit today announced that the soundtrack's vinyl release will launch on September 29th, and that it has a clever little trick. Just as the game's soundtrack is different every time, the…

I’ve been hanging out with Desktop Goose and he’s the best kind of encouraging turd

We all loved playing as the horrible goose in Untitled Goose Game last year, but Sam Person's Desktop Goose companion has now given me a taste of what it feels like to be on the receiving end of that terrible honking machine. The goose is, as you'd expect, a monster, slapping his tiny feet all across your monitor, dragging in goose-related pictures and notepad messages…

Feature: From tulips to teapots

How Untitled Goose Game made a game out of everyday items

Untitled Goose Game is a game about being a horrible goose, about making a mess and watching hapless Brits try to clear it up again. But under all that, it’s a game about things. Apples, hair brushes, keys, mallets, toy planes, tulips, teapots. After all, it takes things to mess things up.“Items are the language of the game,” co-designer Nico Disseldorp tells me. “They’re both…

That dang goose can now be let loose on your desktop

Right, listen. There hasn't been a single good goose-based goof, joke, edit, photoshop, tweet or otherwise made in the five months since House House let Untitled Goose Game loose upon the world. Slapping the feathered devil into any old context just doesn't cut it, and the phrase "and you are a horrible goose" is a patter abyss - this is the hill I choose to…

The 8 most peaceful gardens in games

Put the 9mm down, for crying out loud. Not every game is about shooting your enemies in the shin bones. Honestly. Give me that, here, take this trowel. Now, follow me, through this tranquil landscape of blooming daffodils and perfectly arranged stone paths covered in happy moss. Yes, that’s it, you want a turn around the garden. A bit of soil on your fingers. And…

Untitled Goose Game: the goose is Alice’s smirking revenge

We're all going mad for the goose, eh? I know we all lost it when the first trailer for Untitled Goose Game came out, but apparently it seems we were somewhat justified. It's nice to be a bit naughty in a video game, but where the naughtiness isn't eviscerating local monsters just trying to get by/the enemy group of soldiers [delete as applicable].But I think…

Untitled Goose Game streamer made a goose costume into a controller

To play Untitled Goose Game is to enter the mind of a goose, to feel mischief and malice fill you and flow through you. To enter the body of a goose is quite different, Twitch streamer Dylan "Rudeism" Beck discovered. Famed for his commitment to play games with wrong and weird and custom controllers (he's the lad who panned Mordhau players with a frying pan),…

Untitled Goose Game review

What's the deal with geese? It's a question I've been asking myself for the better part of a decade. Admittedly, it's a rather odd question to have been mulling over for so many years, but for my whole time at university I lived in extreme proximity to them, and it had an impact. My campus was stuffed with the things. As I'd fall asleep at…

Untitled Goose Game will waddle out this month, still officially named Untitled Goose Game

Nature's apex bully, the goose, will unleash its spite upon a small English village in Untitled Goose Game later this month. On Friday, developers House House announced a release date of September 20th for their sandbox stealth game, which stars a honking wee git stealing from, tricking, and generally bother the poor villagers. It's just banter, okay? I've been keenly awaiting this for so long,…
