Untitled Goose Game will let you be very rude to your neighbors early next year

Untitled Goose Game is coming to annoy us all in early 2019

Untitled Goose Game delighted us all last year with a trailer promising to let us fulfill the most exciting gaming fantasy of all – the chance to be a very mean goose. It’s a little like Metal Gear, except instead of infiltrating terrorist strongholds, you’re sneaking around everyday people, snatching their stuff, and using it to engage in hijinks.

A new trailer for the game debuted today as part of Nintendo’s latest indie presentation, showing off a whole bunch of new scenarios where you turn pleasant days into unpleasant ones. Steal a gardener’s hat. Honk at children and chase them around. Drop a man’s clothes into a fountain to create a makeshift laundromat.

Perhaps more pertinently, the trailer confirms an “early 2019” release for the game. That’s still too vague for my tastes, but at least it’s a bit more precise than the ‘sometime next year’ window we had earlier. It will be out for PC – on both Windows and Mac – along with the Switch release.

The Metal Gear comparison is based on our hands-on time with the game back at GDC, and it’s just as delightfully nonsensical with controller in hand as the trailer suggests. It’s looking to be a very good time.

One last detail of note – take a look at the screenshot above again. I mean, take a really good look at it. Yeah. What’s the deal with that little guy?
