• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"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 dreams have finally come true!"

—From the Steam page

Goat Simulator is an intricate Simulation Game about living the life of a goat, as the title sugg-

Who are we kidding? It's anything but.[1]

The goal of the game is to Wreak Havok on the sandbox (where the A.I. humans are not the brightest) and complete objectives, while licking objects, blowing up cars, finding secret spots, marvelling at the Stylistic Suck, etc.

Released in 2014, developed and published by Coffee Stain Studios. The game was programmed in the spirit of "It's not a bug, it's a feature." It became a popular game to Let's Play on YouTube during its release. [2] Since then, DLC continues to be made for the game.

Tropes used in Goat Simulator include:

This page needs more trope entries. You can help this wiki by adding more entries or expanding current ones.

  • Affectionate Parody:
  • Alien Abduction: If you carry an odd bowl-like item you can find in the garage of the house closest to the pen in which you start and put it on a post in the middle of one of the Crop Circles, a Flying Saucer will beam you up and leave you in orbit. (Don't worry, you'll get respawned in Goatville in a couple minutes, or you can speed up the process...)
  • Crop Circles: A pair can be found in the fields of Goatville.
  • Easter Egg: Finding hidden locations and power-ups gets you achievements.
  • Flying Saucer: You can summon one.
  • Human Sacrifice: If you drag five humans to the hidden ritual pentagram in the mountains overlooking Goatville, you can get a special reward...
  • Indy Escape: Averted by the humans onto whom you can roll giant boulders in both Goatville and Goat City Bay.
  • Interface Screw: Happens during the brief Mushroom Samba you experience if you lick the white powder...
  • Ladder Physics: The goat character does it completely perpendicular to the latter, and never actually puts its hooves inside the ladder itself; in effect the goat is hovering its way up the ladder.
  • Mushroom Samba: There's a house in Goat City Bay where you can interrupt a drug deal. If you then lick the white powder on the table...
  • Ragdoll Physics: Uses this heavily.
  • Self-Deprecation: The Steam page, quoted below, points out its game is "completely stupid".
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Everything from random gas bottles to an entire filling station, sometimes if you just look at it wrong.
  • Vent Physics: Air vents on top of some of the buildings give varying degrees of vertical lift to the adventurous goat.
  • Wreaking Havok: Encouraged, since the physics engine is designed to be ultra sensitive.

    "Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.

  2. In fact, the whole reason it was released is because alpha footage of the buggy game received a bunch of attention on the company's YouTube page.
