Other games to win prizes Dev Choice Awards include Disco Elysium, Control, and Baba Is You - some good stuff.

That pesky goose has gone and stolen the D.I.C.E award for Game Of The Year

The yearly D.I.C.E awards are officially wrapped for 2019's games and a familiar bandit reportedly sneaked into the event. Well, as much as one's sneaking when they've been nominated for a handful of awards. The Untitled Goose Game had its non-name thrown in the hat for Game Of The Year and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences membership voted it in as winner. Congrats,…

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…

Feature: Honk 'em if you got 'em

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…

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),…

Feature: A wild goose chase

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,…

Feature: Separating the chaff grenades from the wheat... grenades

The most promising upcoming stealth games

It’s a bit tricky to knock together a list of the best upcoming stealth games, because it’s a bit tricky to say what a stealth game even is anymore. Stealth is more frequently looking like a playstyle or bulletpoint rather than the crux of an entire game. Even the best stealth games in recent memory - yer Invisible Incs, Ian Hitmans, Alien: Isolations - have all…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Untitled Goose Game honking onto Epic this year

Bad news: The delightful stealth prank/bullying waterfowl simulator Untitled Goose Game has nothing new and fancy to show at E3 this year. Good news: It is still on track to launch on PC this year. News that will probably make you shout at me because you think I should be more or less shouty about it myself: it'll be exclusive to the Epic Games Store…

Untitled Goose Game waddling back to later in 2019

We'll need to wait a while longer to vandalise a village as a ghastly goose in Untitled Goose Game, as developers House House have announced they're delaying their sneak-o-antagonise 'em up from this spring to the vague time of "later in 2019." I'm happy to wait for a game this charming if it needs it, and this might also give me the summer to chase…

Feature: Well, like a solid 60% of them

I reviewed every animal at EGX

At the end of my first day at EGX, I looked at my notes. I'd jotted down thoughts about eight games, and all but one of them revolved around a cute animal. Does that say more about me, or the volume of developers that place animals at the centre of their attempts to lure in players and press coverage? Let's set that question aside for…
