In what started out as an indie developer tech demo gone crazy, Goat Simulator has arrived. Curious, I head to its Steam page for more information and find this as the product announcement from developer Coffee Stain Studios: “You can now be a goat.”
Thanks allot, Coffee Stain Studios. I guess I’ll have to take it from there.
