Following an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release on 17th December, House House’s Untitled Goose Game has surpassed one million sales across all platforms. The delightfully silly stealth game/goose mischief simulator has captured the public’s imagination and propelled it to levels of popularity the studio couldn’t have predicted.
Cabel Sasser, House House’s co-founder, expresses his appreciation for the game’s success and fanbase in a tweet stating: “The reaction was beyond anything we could have imagined. The fan art, the writing, yes the memes, protest signs, Chrissy Teigen, Muppets?! (in reference to The Game Awards 2019) It feels once-in-a-lifetime.”
It’s uplifting to see the gaming market not only make room for a title which eschews violence for (relatively) harmless mischief, but also help that game flourish and develop a community of its own. Congratulations House House; may the goose glide onwards to further success in 2020.
Untitled Goose Game is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Switch.
