You play a cloven-hoofed goat in an open-world action game where you steer your goat to do as much damage as possible. the original game started as a joke prototype that caught on due to its extremely silly action and developed a cult following.
The game is popular because of the bizarre, silly and overblown violent action. You head-butt the locals, ram into buildings, cause explosions, and even set off rockets. Unlike other destructible open worlds (like Lego games) here you have no set objectives, goals or busy work to attend to. The incentive is the world itself - both discovering more places to go and even sillier pranks to pull.
Goat Simulator 3 takes you to explore the vast open world of San Angora, filled to the brim with varied locales, wacky characters, mini-games and events to participate in. As you play, you unlock new types of "goat" to play as, including a striped goat (a zebra), a tall goat (giraffe), and even a goldfish. you can also find items to decorate your goat with, including toilet rolls, tea trays, and a working jetpack.
The result is a game that is as fun as it is bizarre. It's one of the experiences that kids love and parents find bewildering (which only makes kids love it more). The latest entry in the series matches the peculiar play of earlier games while adding some new twists, jokes, explosions, and of course an endless supply of goats.
