Social media users might have recently noticed an abundance of goose-related jokes and images in their news feeds.
There is a reason for that. An independent video game released in September for the Nintendo Switch and PC has made the goose an unlikely star.
The game, “Untitled Goose Game,” has the player controlling a simple, run-of-the-mill goose whose goal is to torment a farmer and others unfortunate enough to cross the bird’s path. The player accomplishes this by making the goose steal and hide the human characters’ belongings and by playing other pranks.
