Goat Simulator is one of the biggest "cases" of the contemporary videogame market. It is a hilarious simulator, or rather, the parody of a simulator, in which you have to impersonate a goat and interact with the surrounding scenery. Once in the game it is possible to transport things or people, sneak into buildings, make very high jumps and… of course, horn everything that comes within range of the cute little beast!
All this, as if this were not enough, is "seasoned" by numerous glitches, intentionally left in the game by the developers, which contribute to making the gameplay incredibly crazy and unpredictable. Would you like to play it? No problem, I'll tell you how to do it right away.
Goat Simulator is available for all major desktop and mobile platforms, plus some video game consoles, and its price is really affordable: just under 10 euros. There are also expansions available (also for a fee) that introduce RPG-style elements into the game and - just think - a survival mode in which people and goats are transformed into zombies. So, ready to find out how to download Goat Simulator? Fun is guaranteed!
