Main Game Features

- Five areas of puzzle-solving hilarity
- Single-player and cooperative options
The story in Untitled Goose Game is incredibly straightforward. Don't go into this game expecting some narrative masterpiece with storied characters and areas. Untitled Goose Game's story is about as complex as Super Mario's. In the game, you play as a menacing goose (or geese, if you're playing in co-op), wreaking havoc on an idyllic village. You start the game by quacking your way out of a fenced-in area, eventually swimming across a pond and stumbling upon a garden. You are given a short list of tasks to complete, but with no narrative reason beyond causing a ruckus. That said, Untitled Goose Game doesn't need too much of a story, as the goose itself has got plenty of personality. Despite having no dialogue, the game's non-player characters are also highly personable, due to their emotional reactions to your antics.
Untitled Goose Game's controls are about as simplistic as its story, offering gameplay mechanics that even the newest gamer can master. Playing as the titular goose, you have a small but useful list of abilities. You can run, quack, flap your wings, and pick up various items with your beak. After completing a brief tutorial section, you'll find yourself in the first major area of the game. Untitled Goose Game is split into five distinct areas, each with a short “to-do” list of objectives. Most objectives require you to find various items and drag them to their rightful spot, interrupt and interact with human characters, and generally act like a goose. Once you've completed enough tasks, you're free to move onto the next area until you've finished the game. You can play the game in either one player or two player mode, thanks to a recent multiplayer update.
Untitled Goose Game is an uproarious adventure that's sure to put a smile on your face. Whether you experience the game solo or with a friend, it's almost impossible to complete an area without laughing once or twice. It's a very fun game, but it'll probably be over before you know it. Even if you take your time and complete every task in each area, you can finish the game in just a couple of hours. There are a handful of secret tasks to complete, offering a bit of extra play-time, but Untitled Goose Game is a brief blitz of bird bombardment.
If you're looking for a game that's not too complex and contains some pretty witty puzzles, give Untitled Goose Game a shot.
