Icculus Is Porting Goat Simulator To Linux
Posted , 29 March 2014 at 1:43 pm UTC / 31885 views

Good news goat fans, Goat Simulator is officially coming to Linux and promises some very odd action. One of the funniest games i've seen for a long time.

I have been holding off on posting this as per developer request, but now I am able to share it with you.

Ryan "Icculus" Gordon is the one porting it and here's a funny fact, he hasn't been answering his emails from the developers, but it seems he has been busy:
Coffee Stain StudiosYeah, it looks like Ryan uploaded it to Steam while we were asleep, haha. We still haven't heard a confirmation from him that he's finishing the port over e-mail, so I don't know what to tell you. Hopefully there will be successful Mac and Linux ports of Goat Simulator, but we have as much info as you do. Ryan is really a mystery man to work with..
I have been speaking to Armin Ibrisagic from Coffee Stain about it for a while, so it's good to see Ryan is working on it and it looks like it will be out soon as it has Linux now added to the "oslist" on SteamDB too.

I have to say I've seen game-play of it on Twitch and it actually looks quite funny, especially when you arm your goat with a jetpack.

I am super excited to start jumping around and causing havoc as a goat, and you should be too.

About
Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your dreams have finally come true! WASD to write history.

Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you'll earn even more points! Or you could just give Steam Workshop a spin and create your own goats, levels, missions, and more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.

Features
  • You can be a goat
  • Get points for wrecking stuff - brag to your friends that you're the alpha goat
  • Steam Workshop support - make your own goats, levels, missions, game modes, and more!
  • MILLIONS OF BUGS! We're only eliminating the crash-bugs, everything else is hilarious and we're keeping it
  • In-game physics that spazz out all the time
  • Seriously look at that goat's neck
  • You can be a goat

It comes out on April 1st and no it isn't a joke, it really is a game. No ETA yet for the Linux version until Ryan starts answering his emails to the developer haha.

To buy a real goat? Not a bad idea. I will teach it to do the same things than the goat in the game does.

So the mysterious Unreal Engine 3 title he was working on only proves to be a cheap sandbox game. Disappointing...

This game looks stupid fun. I love the fact that it will be on Linux. And the amount of fun to be had for ten bucks isn't disappointing.

Yay!

I was already a bit miffed when I saw there's no Linux support for this game.

Is he a good porter? Because apparently he ported Killing Floor to Linux and it runs like shit :/ (note it not just me. Lots of people report same problem)
