Untitled Goose Game

Untitled Goose Game will keep untitled in its title when it arrives on Switch, PC and Mac this autumn.

In House House’s Untitled Goose Game, you play as an asshole goose causing trouble for some perfectly pleasant-looking villagers. The goose bumped the game out the of its original, early 2019 release window in February, thanks to its terrible antics. Now, the indie developer has announced that Untitled Goose Game will release on September 20, 2019. It will be available on the eShop for the Nintendo Switch, and as an Epic exclusive on PC and Mac.

House House is promising that the game will be available in 11 languages right out of the gate, (and I for one am curious to see how “Honk!” is localized). Untitled Goose Game will retail for $19.99, but will offer a $14.99 launch price.


The presence of geese in games tends to suggest the homey-ness and tranquillity of village life. I, for one, am thankful that House House are presenting their goose as a horrible little creature. And that, we, as the players, will get to fulfil our dreams of honking and screeching as the horrible little creatures we have always longed to be.

(And we’d like to reiterate, top marks to House House for persisting with the title Untitled Goose Game as the actual title.)
