Popular game Goat Simulator has been named Apple's App of the Week, and as a result, it's available for free for the next seven days. This is the first time Goat Simulator has been available at no cost since it was introduced in September of 2014.

In Goat Simulator, you take control of a goat, and the idea is to lay waste to the environment around you, doing as much damage and causing as much chaos as you can.

Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your mobile dreams have finally come true!

It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

Coffee Stain Studios, the developers behind Goat Simulator, have released several other games in the Goat Simulator series, including Goat Simulator GoatZ, Goat Simulator Waste of Space, and Goat Simulator MMO Simulator.

Goat Simulator requires an iPhone 4s or later, iPad 2 or later, or 5th generation iPod touch or later.

Goat Simulator is available for both the iPhone and the iPad and can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Never understood the popularity of this misleadingly named app. There isn't much in the way of simulation; the lack of anatomically correct goat phallus is a big letdown. I'll just stick to my furstuit and many, many conventions, thank you very much!
It's Goat Simulator, not Goat Stimulator.

This will outpace Mario Run in downloads in the next 24 hours.
They just took the wind out of their sails and sales.
And the goat can run offline to boot!

This is my secret wish.

Nintendo spends millions in marketing & development launching this game only to be outpaced by a stupid Goat Simulator game.

Here's why I think Nintendo screwed the pooch on this:

* In-app Purchases can't be shared in a household like app purchases can so Dad can't buy it and share it through the entire family. Guess what can be shared? a 3DS Cartridge which families have shared for years
* No Offline access
* Asking (requiring?) a Nintendo Account to Play
* No landscape mode (personal opinion, I'm sure they made portrait mode work well)


Thank god they don't have in-app purchases for anything more than the additional levels. if they make you buy coins or other BS, then they're no better than every other freemium app out there.

Downloading goat simulator out of protest.
