Untitled Goose Thread

I’m ready to commit to the argument of how hitman is about killing the absolute richest untouchablest worst people on the planet, so twitter people trying ride some high horse about how nice the goose game is in comparison cause it’s about being an amusing nonviolent jackass to regular people is some liberal disneyland morality nonsense


i think ppl on twitters morality is so warped and black and white that it simply because the goose does not kill

the game is the switches best seller right now, links awakening is second I dunno if i have feelings about it yet


there is a small ranch, i think, with goose and chickens around.
when i pass nearby the goose keep screaming at me, after a lot of years of that, i decided to put my finger to them to bite me.

didn’t actually hurted somehow, and the bite me once and stopped, another bited, and stopped.
and they just went do to their goose thing

PS: don’t put your fingers to be bitten by goose, dunno if portuguese goose are less dangerous or not.


Trust no geese

Just played this from end to end, really enjoyed it. There’s one postgame task I can’t quite solve though.

Decorating the bust with outside objects. The glasses and hat were pretty easy (I’ve got the old man’s woolen hat and the boy’s glasses) but I can’t find a mouth item that the lady will accept. I’ve tried the pacifier, toothbrush, even a couple flowers. What am I supposed to bring her?.

Weird, the pacifier worked for me

Right, that was a bug. Pretty much all the stuff I’ve enumerated would have worked, but didn’t until I restarted.


you can get a goose on your shirt dressed like geese if that’s your thing


well then


If you train an AI on ten thousand Christmas carols, the goose kills Jesus and shakes the stars.

(From a weirdly unlinkable Janelle Shane tweet)


waddling back to see this tableau and wondering what the deal is before proceeding with the game made the final To Do reveal pretty amazing Gud Job Goose Makers


honestly kind of offended this got an IGF grand prize nomination when it’s just simplistic pretentious hitman

It was fun and sharing it with my friends was a joyful experience, I don’t really care that a game about murdering people had similar mechanics first


Getting to play as a goose makes it better than any and all hitmen


but it’s… less joyous and a less complete game in every way

it just makes me realize how little credit hitman gets

“it’s like Hitman but better” and “it’s just Hitman but worse” are both weird takes

Goose Game can riff on Hitman and not also need to be an absurdly full-featured action stealth game. as a treat.


I’m pretty sure a large swath of the gaming public & media appreciate Hitman just fine and it’s not diminished by a little indie game winning some awards and becoming a meme on Twitter for a while. But don’t underestimate the value of a game being much more superficially silly (as opposed to Hitman which is also very silly but wears Serious Clothes) to increase the capacity for inspiring delight. It was a breath of fresh air even if its mechanics weren’t revolutionary.
