Untitled Goose Game, from Australian game developer House House, lets players become a goose-on-the-loose in an unsuspecting village. Players make their way around town, from peoples’ back gardens to the high street shops to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day. The game now features a local two-player mode with, yes, two mischievous geese, that just launched via free update for all players on September 23rd.

Untitled Goose Game has received multiple awards since 2019 including recognition from BAFTA and the Golden Joystick Awards, as well as “Game of the Year” accolades in the Game Developers Choice Awards and 23rd Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. To date the digital version of the game, which originally released in September 2019, has sold over one million copies.
