Developers Coffee Stain Studios have confirmed that they are working on a Linux and Mac port for their popular game Goat Simulator. The confirmation came through a screenshot of a post on Facebook that found its way to Reddit. The announcement read: “To all Mac and Linux users: We are currently working on a port of Goat Simulator for Mac and Linux! We don’t have a date for when it’s going to be done, but y’all are going to be goats! “
So even though a fixed date wasn’t announced, there is a confirmation that there’s a port being worked on, which should give Linux gamers to be happy about something.
Goat Simulator, as the name suggests, is basically, well, a Goat Simulator. The objective of the game is to take control of a single goat and go about causing as much mayhem and destruction as much as your goatiness allows you to, which is actually quite a lot. You are scored based on how awesome or cool a stunt you pulled off all the while causing mayhem in the game world. The game is kind of like those Bicycle or Skating simulation where scores are awarded for stunts and tricks. Only here you are a goat and you are awarded points based on the amount of destruction you cause. You can be doing a backflip while head butting a bucket through a window or flying across the sky with a jetpack on a goat! The sky is the limit in what you can do in this game.
The game has been released on Steam on 1st April, 2014, with support for Achievements, Cards, Level Editor & Leaderboards. So the Linux port will also contain support for all those too.
