Goat Simulator, the self-described "world's dumbest game," will be available on April 1, and now developer Coffee Stain Studios has released a launch trailer that channels Dead Island. Just like the chilling Dead Island trailer before it, the Goat Simulator launch trailer moves backwards, beginning with goat lying dead on the ground and then showing how he got there.

"Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to you," Coffee Stain Studios writes. "You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true!" The new trailer has over 1.6 million views on YouTube alone.

Goat Simulator officially launches April 1 (that's not an April Fool's joke) and you can preorder the game today through the developer's website for $10. Preordering lets you play three days early, which is today. Goat Simulator will also be available on Steam come April 1.

"Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. It was made in a couple of weeks so don't expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats," Coffee Stain Studios said. "In fact, you're better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you'd spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat."

If goats aren't your thing, there's also a Bear Simulator in development.
