Untitled Goose Game is finally arriving in physical form this September. The interesting game has been out last year. But it is only now that it will be available in retail stores.
Panic, Inc and House House released the game last year. The Untitled Goose Game quickly made a name in the gaming world due to its fun and quirky gameplay. Unfortunately, physical game collectors do not have the means to cop the game back then.
This time, iam8bit has announced that a physical copy of the game is arriving in two months. People who love collecting physical games now have a way to purchase the game.
We're honking excited to announce Untitled Goose Game Physical Editions for Switch and PS4, along with its unique, soundtrack on vinyl.

Easy to understand gameplay
There are a lot of games released last year. But, Untitled Goose Game is one of the most interesting ones.
The gameplay is fairly simple. Players take the role of a mischievous goose. The end goal is to solve a puzzle while creating chaos.
There is a list of instructions that need to be accomplished. The instructions may be accomplished by honking, ducking down, running, flapping the wings, or by grabbing objects to disturb villagers.
There are several areas inside the game. Each area has different instructions that need to be completed. Once a certain area is clear, the other objectives appear. The goose may then move on to a different area after.
Players may repeat the missions after the game. However, the challenges are tougher and harder to finish.
What makes the Untitled Goose Game worth getting?
The game is very fun and interactive. Controls are easy to understand and the whole game can be finished within one day.
However, the naughty goose is what keeps players hooked. It is playful enough to keep a person asking for more.
Players also have a lot of freedom inside the game. It is easy to stray away from the instructions and just mess with the villagers.
There is a level guide to see what needs to be accomplished. But, there is no fun in that. The fun lies in exploring the game and what moves can disturb a villager more.
It is also a great stress reliever as creating chaos in the village evokes a lot of laughter and fun.
Going physical or digital?
There is not much difference in-game between the physical and the digital copy. However, the physical copy might be worth getting for players who collect boxes and game cases.
The eco-friendly theme is great and all. But, purchasing the digital copy of the game is another way to reduce trash.
Going physical or digital does not really matter. What matters is The Untitled Goose Game will surely bring a lot of fun to players.
