No Turning Back: Goat Simulator's Amazing Launch Trailer

Goatest trailer of all time

If you're still somewhat incredulous at the fact that Goat Simulator is actually a thing, don't worry: you're not alone. But as a connoisseur of dumb jokes taken too far and also RPS' official Goatitor-In-Chief, I must say that I'm impressed with this one's dedication to cloven-footed shenanigans. For one, it's basically Just Cause with a goat, which is literally all I've ever wanted from games, and for two oh goodness just watch this exceedingly silly launch trailer. It riffs on one of the most renowned/infamous game trailers of all time, and it is just fantastic.

And here I thought Dead Island trailer references were played out. I suppose it just goes to show that goats really are an existential fountain of youth. Or maybe, to adopt a more goatly frame of mind, if you ram your head against the same joke enough, it will eventually become funny again.

Goat Simulator isn't out quite yet, but it will be on - you guessed it - April 1st. Given that it emerged from an off-the-cuff-hoof joke by Sanctum developer Coffee Stain Studios, it's only fitting.

And now, revel in the beaming idiot glory of this description:

"Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! WASD to write history."

Well, you heard the blurb. Get on that.
