Day 12: Incommunicado
I’ve got a treat for those of you who have been clamoring for a Goat Thing of the Day. I know! It’s been so long!
Some game developers were goofing around during a game jam and…what, you don’t know what a game jam is? Are you kidding me? I can’t believe you don’t know what a game jam is. Who doesn’t know what a game jam is. Honestly. I swear, what am I going to do with you people. OK, take this down: a game jam…obviously…is when neighborhood computer programming kids rob local convenience stores dressed as their favorite video game character, say, the red-feathered chicken from Angry Birds, and hold the store owner hostage until the chief negotiator from the FBI arranges the successful delivery of twelve thousand jars of jam. Usually a fruit farm has to get involved.
Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone you didn’t know that already. Can I get on with my story now?
So anyway, these kids, during one of their game jams, high on fructose and pectin, made a game. A first person shooter type game where you’re a goat, wielding axes and licking things. No I’m not making this up. It’s called Goat Simulator and here’s the trailer:
You can pre-order Goat Simulator now, and you can bet when this thing comes out I’ll be incommunicado for a while.
