YouTube superstar PewDiePie signs deal to make games with the creator of Goat Simulator

Sniping humans will buckets is a thing goats are wont to do. Awful, really.

I don't think there's a single other game in the world that's quite as YouTube as Goat Simulator. It's ridiculous, it's physics-based and it's unpredictable. Basically, it's great for videos. That's why a partnership between the most prolific YouTuber, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg, and one of the Goat Simulator developers makes sense. 

Our best sandbox games list would probably make for good video bait. 

As The Verge report, Armin Ibrisagic is one of the key designers on Goat Simulator and he's managed to secure a partnership between his new development studio, DoubleMoose, and PewDiePie's media company, Revelmode. 

There's been no specific games announced, but the deal will see multiple titles developed across mobile and PC, with PewDiePie offering "creative input". 

It's a canny business move on PewDiePie's part, especially as he has access to a substantial platform to promote the games when they're released. Maybe we'll see Goat Simulator lose its throne as the most YouTube game in existence after all. 

PewDiePie previously partnered with Montreal-based studio Outerminds on the games Legend of the Brofist and Tuber Simulator, so it's not his first step into games development by any means. 

As you can probably guess, the new partnership aims to cater to an audience looking for comedy. "Comedy is huge in entertainment, but it still feels in its infancy in the games industry," says Ibrisagic. "Felix and I would like to work on changing that."

"There's been no specific games announced"

Oh whew, I was afraid it was Coffee Stain Studios. I am not very interested in their current project, but I like some of their small stuff and am hoping for a Sanctum 3 still.
