If you thought the Goat Simulator craze was over, you were wrong. A modder has created an especially hilarious mod that allows you to play not as a new variation of goat, but rather as the beloved animated hero Shrek from DreamWorks' popular film franchise.

Coffee Stain Studios has previously labeled Goat Simulator as the "world's dumbest game," in case that needed repeating. You can download and install the mod via creator [FP] Dafini's Steam Community page. Here's a link the music, too, if you need to hear it again.

In semi more serious news, Coffee Stain Studios has announced that Goat Simulator patch 1.1 will add local splitscreen multiplayer and a new playable map that is said to be roughly the same size as the original map. This patch, which also includes new achievements and goats, will be released sometime in the middle of May.

This game has to come to the Wii U. Nintendo's home console could be an excellent fit for Goat simulator. If Goat simulator ever does get ported. No new goats in May for Nintendo folk. DLC rarely if ever makes it to Wii U.

This game is too stupid to be only " a goat which in real life you cant be."

I was really disappointed that they did not come out with a snail or paint drying simulator this year. Goat simulator is too busy for me.

Goat Simulator is getting better post-launch support than Battlefield 4, or any EA game for that matter. XD

"World's dumbest game"

No, that award goes to Call of Duty.

You take any chance - no matter how remote - to slam Call of Duty, don't you?

I suppose that the COD-hate bandwagon still has faithful passengers like you.

The game might be funny but I heard it is very short game and not worth the price. Wait for a sale to get it...

this game seems funny but its also unbelievable how many people actually paid for this game. Yeah its funny for 10-20 minutes but after that damn, too adolescent for my tastes at that point.

Goat Simulator is a parody of itself. It exists to remind us that we spend money on buggy unfinished alpha-state pieces of sh*t like DayZ. It's a message that says we have to stop doing that.

I would say here that I have more fun watching others play it and making inane comments while their sanity slowly saps away. XD

What do you mean by "world's dumbest game"? You didn't actually understand the whole concept in-game, its deep philosophy, complex and intricate world. In order to understand this you must BE THE GOAT. When you become the goat you'll understand how intelligent this game really is.

I am guessing that you would be one of those people who spammed "10"s for Street-Cleaning Simulator. ;)

This game is just senseless and stupid enough to be hugely entertaining. After watching the How To on Achievement Hunter, I might actually grab it when my gaming budget has recovered from ESO.
