didn’t actually hurted somehow, and the bite me once and stopped, another bited, and stopped.

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.

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

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.

absolutely, yeah, I just didn’t find it to be doing much of anything different – the puzzles are almost all more frustrating and less creative than hitman’s. I would be totally enthusiastic about different if there turned out to be anything there (I bought it on that expectation), I was just really underwhelmed.
