It’s a lovely morning in the village, and you – a horrible goose – have brought an equally horrible friend.
We rather liked Untitled Goose Game.
And we’re aware that isn’t an unusual opinion, by the way. The goose was beloved the world over and rightly so. (Stealth games would all be improved by a socialist bird terrorising a village of tories.)
In our review, I said: “Do you know what, though? I really just love this goose. The paddling feet, the chunky waddle, the wagging tail, the way it looks so mischievious, hiding in hedgerows. And that glorious honk!”
I did have one criticism that was held back from the published review, however. Sometimes you have a wish for a game that you would dearly love to see, but because it was never on the table to start with, it would be unfair to knock a game’s score down because that hypothetical dream never existed. Imagine marking down FIFA because it doesn’t have a fishing minigame, or complaining that Microsoft Flight Simulator doesn’t feature any driveable cars. You just don’t put that stuff in reviews. It would be unfair and weird.
But now, it’s time to share what that specific complaint was: that Untitled Goose Game didn’t have a co-op mode. It’s a game I loved, of course, but could imagine having even more fun playing it with my wife.
You’ll notice I said “didn’t” there. Past tense. Untitled Goose Game didn’t have a co-op mode, but Developer House House is adding a free update to Untitled Goose Game that will introduce a second
horrible brilliant goose for local co-op shenanigans.
Oh dear! Two horrible geese!

Co-op mode will be added to Untitled Goose Game on September 23, 2020. On the same date, the game will also be added to Steam and Itch.io for the first time.
Can’t wait to tear that village up with my other half.
