GoatZ, the just released DLC for Goat Simulator, is latching on to the zombie trend that’s been sweeping the gaming industry. Oh, and the survival trend. And the crafting system craze… Basically, GoatZ is going to fufill all of your zombie goat desires. It has the same kind of hilarious, ridiculous antics we’ve all come to expect from Coffee Stain Studios, and Goat Simulator has been temporarily discounted on Steam to celebrate this new, flesh-eating content.
Next week is E3 2014 and we're ridiculously excited to be attending! We have so many awesome things lined up and a couple of exclusive announcements to look forward to. We can't wait to share it all with our community! It's not just another booth that we're bringing to E3, but rather, a full service area perfect for meetups and non-stop fun! Come hang out in our lounge, watch presentations on the stage and enjoy titles we're showcasing at our gaming stations. Because we are passionate about gaming wikis, you can bet that we do have an E3 Wiki up and running, ready for information to be added the moment it's out!
While Goat Simulator doesn't launch until tomorrow, April 1st, we're so excited about this launch that we couldn't wait one more day to announce the Official Goat Simulator Wiki and the map contest that goes with it! We're thrilled to have partnered with Coffee Stain Studios for this official wiki and we want to wish them a happy early launch day! Early supporters have been licking objects and flinging them about with their lolling goat tongues since Friday with early access. We cannot wait to hear what you think of Goat Simulator.
Why should you be playing Goat Simulator, you ask. Well, if you look at the Steam Workshop page for it, the first and last point simply state, "you can be a goat" and we all know how awesome that is. What more could you ask for? While Goat Simulator has physics, they are promised to spazz out all of the time. Coffee Stain is only interested in fixing game breaking bugs, but recognize most of them are hysterical, and therefore, will remain in the game. If smashing objects to gain points so you can brag to your friends that you are the true alpha goat isn't enough for you, Steam Workshop support allows you to create your own goats, maps, levels, missions and game modes!
Speaking of maps, we are running a contest alongside the launch and the Official Goat Simulator Wiki! Between the launch and May 5th, create your own map and upload it to Goat Simulator's Steam Workshop to be considered. Coffee Stain Studios will judge and pick the top maps and the winners will receive some really cool prizes. The top maps will be showcased at the Curse and Gamepedia booth at E3! You could quite possibly have your map shown to tens of thousands of people at the biggest gaming industry expo in the world!
Grab a copy of Goat Simulator off Steam and start creating a map that will win over the hearts of booth attendees at E3! After uploading your map to Steam Workshop, head over to the Official Goat Simulator Wiki and see what you can do to help out. Want to become a contributor? The Help Wiki has all of the information you need to get started as a successful contributor!
Something awesome is always happening here at Gamepedia and we hate to see hard work from our fantastic community go unnoticed. We've had quite a few new wikis launch lately for upcoming games and we want to make sure that these get their share of the limelight. This edition of NWR comes with five new fantastic wikis for you to check out and contribute to!
As the title suggests, you play through the game from the perspective of a goat. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, it is highly recommended that you swing by the wiki to see what gameplay possibilities are out there, such as you, as a goat, hurling through the air. The latest feature added allows you to lick something, which sticks to your tongue, meaning you can run around the game with an axe flinging about your goat. Goat Simulator also features realistic physics and destructible objects.
Not your average trading card game, Hand of Fate combines cards and adventuring. The game takes place in a cabin at the end of the world where you play a game of cards to determine your fate. The twist with Hand of Fate is that is a card based roguelike, where the cards you collect deal out the dungeon floor in which you adventure. With tons of gear and encounters to unlock, and deck building mechanics that allow for your adventure to be customized, a successful Kickstarter campaign is no surprise!
A non-linear 3D shooter with RPG elements, Insula takes place on an island where there was an accident and now both humans and animals have mutated. Not only do you need to fight the locals, but people interested in what happened also need to be dealt with and they do not have you in their best interests. Insula features loads of quests to work through and multiple player modes!
Available for Early Access Alpha, Invisible, Inc is working its way through alpha and is inviting early adopters to be a part of the development process. A turn based game of espionage, Invisible, Inc is about teams of agents pitted against each other to complete goals, such as hacking computers and breaking into safes, but most importantly, surviving and escaping to the next level!
Created by Starbreeze Studios, Storm is in pre-alpha and slated to be a first person shooter set in a science fiction backdrop. Starbreeze, who has given us games like The Darkness and the Syndicate revival, has not released much information about Storm yet, but it is speculated to be a dark and gritty game in the same flavor of their other releases. Keep an eye on the wiki for details to come!
Don't forget that each wiki at Gamepedia is made for and by the community! Wikis rely on community support and contribution, meaning, we would not be here without you and anyone is welcome to become wiki contributors. All wikis have a help page on the left hand navigation sidebar, which contains basic information to get you started. There is also the Help Wiki for more in-depth knowledge and tutorials. If you have questions you can't find the answer to, or if you just want to say hi to Gamepedia staff and fellow community members, /join #Gamepedia in IRC!
