Unless you've been living under a Twitter-less rock, you've most likely heard about the latest meme-worthy creation from game development company, House House, ironically titled 'Untitled Goose Game.'
After its release on Sept. 20, the game — which is available for PC and Nintendo Switch — immediately gained notoriety. Players are overjoyed by the opportunity to take on the persona of an annoying goose, who must fulfill its duties to terrorize an entire village.
"It's a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose." — House House
That's the name of the game. You are a goose, and your goal is to ruin the lives of everyone in the village.
You steal hats, trample people's gardens, and — most importantly — you honk. To get a better idea of the concept behind the game, watch the trailer, below. It should properly answer any further questions you might have.
Got it? Good.
The goal of the game, however, is a little more complex than simply pulling pranks and wreaking havoc. A review from Slate describes 'Untitled Goose Game' as a "stealth game," which means you're required to sneak around and, well, prank as many people in a stealthy manner.
Apparently, sneaking up on village people gets increasingly difficult as you progress throughout the game. But as long as you're committed, you'll be good as gold.
Apparently, 'Untitled Goose Game' has been in the works for quite a while.
While I'm just finding out about this comedic treasure, video gamers have known about 'Untitled Goose Game' for almost two years now. According to Slate, House House released a teaser for it way back in 2017.
Now that the game has finally been released, fans are going all out in taking on the personality of a goose. It's kind of game-changing, bringing waterfowl culture to an entirely new level.
As you'd imagine, it's making for comedic gold.
As you can probably imagine, the mere existence of 'Untitled Goose Game' is making for some seriously hilarious Twitter content. Players across the Twitterverse are posting all kinds of tweets and memes regarding the game, while thoroughly embracing the persona of an annoying goose.
Make sure to check out some of the tweets below because they're honestly too funny.

I really do love the untitled Goose game because on one hand you get to be a cute yet annoying waterfowl, but on the other hand, you get to be a dick with no consequences AND without inciting any kind of violence or bloodshed— T-posing Menace @ Black Eagles (@LanaDelCosplay) September 25, 2019
AND it's only $15 USD on the Nintendo switch right now
Me: Have you heard about this goose game?— George Fragopoulos (@GFragopoulos) September 27, 2019
My partner: No.
Me: you're a goose and you go around annoying humans, stealing things, and scaring kids.
My partner: so it's just an excuse to be an asshole.
I don’t wanna go to work, I wanna stay home and be an annoying goose. #GooseGame— 🎃 one-bed trope 👻 (@typicalfeminist) September 23, 2019
I HAVE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THIS IS CENSORSHIP. TWITTER WILL HEAR ABOUT THIS. pic.twitter.com/AaEKQx9toN— Charkie (@charkie) September 20, 2019
Annoying goose culture is alive and well, people, and clearly, I'm here for it.
The best part is what the working title of 'Untitled Goose Game' almost was. According to IGN, when the creators of the game were thinking of a title, they were considering calling it "Some Like It Honk."
It didn't stick, but if you ask me, it was seriously genius.
It makes total sense as to why gamers and non-gamers alike are currently flocking to 'Untitled Goose Game' (LOL). Play it with your friends, with your co-workers, and even with your grandma. Regardless of whom you're playing with, it makes for an undeniably entertaining time suck.
Oh, and it kind of goes without saying I'll be spending my weekend portraying an annoying goose. If you need me, you know where to find me.
