The first word in waterfowl-based anti-productivity software.

44 games in, and I finally hit something I already knew about! Had no idea this was in the bundle. I don’t think I would have installed it if it weren’t for this trawl.
Remember Untitled Goose Game? Those were innocent times, weren’t they. Tormenting villagers with a goose. Not with the entire continent of Australia being on fire, not with global pandemic, not with widespread racial unrest due to centuries of socially-approved brutality, just a simple goose. Who happened to be a massive bag of dicks.
And now, you can have that experience just hanging out on your desktop, doing … whatever!
I fired-up the goose and started up Slay the Spire, a game I’ve sunk way too many hours into. I figured it’d be a dick move if I evaluated another Bundle game while a rogue goose was fucking with my shit.
The goose wanders around and honks. The goose periodically drags some memes onto the screen. The goose will occasionally get agitated and steal your mouse pointer — particularly if you closed one of his memes. The goose doesn’t appreciate that at all. The goose will track mud onto your screen.
The goose just acts like a dick.
The goose is strangely endearing.
Long live the goose.
This next adventure will likely involve no geese:

“A one-player journaling RPG about messy trans narratives and superheroes”
… because if there’s one person you want giving their opinions on trans-focused games, it’s a fifty-year-old cis dude.
Yeah, I’mma be real careful with this one.
