Following its release last year for PC and iOS, wacky be-a-goat game Goat Simulator is now available for Xbox One. The game--developed by Double Eleven (Limbo ports) and original creator Coffee Stain Studios--launched Friday, and is available now for $10.

"You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true," reads a line from the game's official description."

In terms of gameplay, Goat Simulator has players causing as much mayhem and destruction as possible while playing as a goat. It uses a scoring system that bears a resemblance to the Tony Hawk skateboarding series. But, "instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff."

Double Eleven also warns that Goat Simulator for Xbox One contains "MILLIONS OF BUGS!" and other physics issues. The studio only plans to fix the major, game-breaking bugs--which makes sense, given that the bugs and oddities are part of the charm.

Goat Simulator won't take up much space on your hard drive, as it's only a 878.25 MB download. For a closer look at the Xbox One version of Goat Simulation, check out some images in the gallery below.

I bought this for a dollar during the Steam winter sale. I got my money's worth of fun out of it.

This game proves that there are people out there who really are stupid enough to pay money for anything.

Still more polished than Bethesda's games.....especially their PS3 port.

I was going to say, 'isn't the point of it that it's one giant ridiculous bugfest?' and yes, that is in fact the point, and all is right with the world.

That "only a 878.25 MB download" line made me freak out though. And then wonder why I can't move on mentally from the 90s.

as in the PC version they're only fixing the game crashing bugs, that's the whole point of this game. I got my moneys worth of lolz last year.

Awesome fun. Played it for a few hours with my son last night and we could not stop laughing. Best $10 I have spent in a long time.

Bragging about bugs in your game. That's a new low. Welcome to the generation of stupid in the video game world.

@nurnberg: The point of the game is glitching things. If you never played, you won't understand. Some of the "bugs" are features they added in. This game was originally made as a joke and people loved it and it grew. The game is fun as hell with a fair price. Not understanding the dev's humor is the only thing confusing you.

Please tell me people aren't spending more than $3.00 or so on this game . It's just not worth more than a few mins of fun. It's often around $3 on PC.

The amount of people that don't get the whole "millions of bugs" joke for Goat Simulator is disturbing. There are a lot of rocks that people live under.

Nothing wrong with having variety in a game library.

"Bethesda won't out perform us when it comes to making bad decisions! bugs with a guarantee of no patching!" Said no good developer ever.


Only patching the "Major" bugs is not a good way to sell your game to people.

Yup, non-game-breaking bugs shouldn't be a problem in this game.

Man you people are old. My first PC had 4mb of RAM and a whopping 80mb of storage and a CPU with turbo up to 33 MHz.

Goat Simulator. Will always be a million bugs, because... it's.. a.. goat.. simulator. There's webpages devoted to Goats Being Stuck. How could getting stuck anywhere in the game be considered a bug?

Not gonna add this to the backlog. Waiting until this is a Gold freebie game. Because... goats... getting... stuck.
