Goat Simulator, described by its creators as the "world's dumbest game," will launch for PC on April 1, better known as April Fools' Day. Created by Sweden-based Coffee Stain Studios, Goat Simulator takes inspiration from classic skating games, but here you control a goat.

Instead of nailing tricks, you will "wreck stuff," the developer says. "Charging into a table and knocking it over yields points, and if you can manage to do it while doing a backflip first and a 360 afterwards, you'll score even more points."

Goat Simulator also includes Steam Workshop support, meaning players can make their own goats, missions, and levels. The game will make its public debut at the Coffee Stain Studios booth at the 2014 Game Developers Conference later this month.

You can preorder Goat Simulator today for $10. The game has no multiplayer and is in development only for Windows PC, not Mac or Linux.
