House House, the developers of Untitled Goose Game, stumbled onto something special here. What makes Untitled Goose Game even more ridiculous is the fact that the concept behind the game originated from a discussion surrounding the ridiculousness of geese.
Geese are always good for comedic antics. If you look at any videos of Geese on the internet, they’re always up to no good. Why not develop an entire video game about it? Of course, Untitled Goose Game comes with the same humorous ridiculousness of real-life geese while allowing players to control these chaotic creatures. Yes, players get to run rampant through a village of humans while stealing different objects from them while being either chaotic evil, or chaotic neutral depending on who controls the goose in the game.
House House knew Untitled Goose Game was going to be a hit as the game was streamed across Twitch and YouTube. It essentially became an internet meme, and we all know how much memes are basically free marketing. The game has garnered plenty of awards since 2019, starting with the Breakthrough Award at the 2019 Golden Joystick Awards, but will Untitled Goose Game have a sequel? We all know how much the internet would love an Untitled Goose Game 2.
The game sold relatively well, having sold millions of copies by the end of 2019. House House is sitting on a gold mine, but it’s always tricky for sequels to match the same success as the original titles. The humorous and chaotic gameplay of Untitled Goose Game has drawn comparisons to the whacky gameplay of Goat Simulator (a game that has yet to get a sequel of its own).
House House is an independent game developer who found commercial success with only their second game. It would be silly not to capitalize, but despite what some April Fools’ websites may tell you: there’s no confirmation of a second Untitled Goose Game yet. We’re going to have to wait to hear if they’ll make an Untitled Goose Game 2.
