Developer Coffee Stain Studios shows off some of the new features coming to the zany game through a new update next month.

by

Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain Studios today released a new video showing off some of the new features coming to the "world's dumbest game" through its previously announced upcoming 1.1 update.

The update, due to arrive in the middle of May, will introduce local 2-4 player splitscreen multiplayer, as well as new movement options like parkour, wall-riding, and the ability to balance on your front legs.

Goat Simulator patch 1.1 also adds a new playable map, which Coffee Stain says is about the same size as the original environment. New achievements and playable goats are also coming to the game through the upcoming update.

In the wake of Goat Simulator's popularity, similar games Bear Simulator and Cat Simulator, have appeared. For more on Goat Simulator, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

I am almost afraid to ask this, but does anyone know of any plans by Coffee Stain to introduce a feature where the goat, well, takes a dump?

WALL RUNNING.  THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.  That's awesome man.


I know it's stupid but I love this game.  It's a ton of goofy nonsensical fun.  And adding new abilities for the character is awesome.  Can't wait to play more of it. :)  Heck I might even do that after I finish editing this video I'm doing...

Cat Simulator? I doubt it will be as good as the movie Aristocats, but in that movie they sing "Everybody wants to be cat" so maybe they were on to something there.

Yeah right and GameSpot gave Surgeon Simulator 2013 an 8/10. Somehow I doubt GS has much credibility anymore.

seriously can't believe the hype this game has gotten... I expect this is a game one would tire of very quickly.

This game is most likely very fun. Controlling a goat and running amok. I hope that this comes to Xbox one, Playstation 4, 3DS, PSvita and Wii U.


Or at the very least Xbox 360 and PS3. This game looks fun to play. "Dumb Fun" a game when you just feel like screwing around. The subject/topic matter is not serious or realistic. But the worlds Dumbest game looks fun. Which is the whole point of videogames in the first place.

I can't tell if this is just a joke or if Coffee Stain is running some Mr. Brainwash/Andy Kaufman pop art commentary on video games with this.  I'm starting to think "world's dumbest game" is meant ironically...

Is anyone else getting annoyed how Gamespot constantly puts "world's dumbest game" in the title of every article that pertains to this game? I think we get it already Gamespot, it's time to move on.

@starhowl All true, but I can say the laughs I got from this game are well worth the 9 bucks I paid.

@_Judas_  maybe, but there's definitely a lot of hilarious content. The glitches kill you everytime, it's incredibly wacky.
