Tired of doing all that needless good for people in Astral Chain? Here's something worth a gander: Untitled Goose Game.
I love this game! Everything about it down to the lazy title makes me smile. You play as an evil goose hellbent on making the lives of human beings as miserable as possible for your own amusement. The game gives you lists of pranks to pull in its various locations (they look handwritten, which is also cute). That's it. And frankly, it's all that's needed.
The game play is a combination of puzzle-solving and stealth in practice, and the difficulty level progresses in a way that feels very natural. Not that it's too linear: you don't have to pull every prank on your list to move on to a new area. You can waddle back later as needed. The adorable graphics and relaxing, slow (sometimes absent) soundtrack perfectly capture the vibe of just being a mischievous goose. The pranks are legits funny to succeed at and there's a real sense of accomplishment you get from pulling them off to boot. You also get to honk obnoxiously to your heart's content with a dedicated honk button.
This game, needless to say, won't save the world, but it might save you from a stressful day, and I think that's important too. The only gripe I've got is that I wish there were even more of it. Who knows, maybe there will be eventually. Either way, I've found it among my most enjoyable new plays all year. Just wanted to strongly recommend it today if you haven't played it.Last edited by Jaicee - on 24 September 2019
