A Devious Goose Is Honking Its Way Onto Game Discs

Untitled Goose Game confirmed to receive physical release

Whether on the PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One; many gamers have enjoyed the simple yet highly entertaining premise behind Untitled Goose Game. Developed by the Australian-based studio House House, this puzzle game sees you take control of a goose, who wanders around a town completing objectives… many of which result in receiving ire from the villagers.

Already own the game and perhaps want something other than the game in your collection physically? Also releasing on 29 September 2020 is the game’s vinyl soundtrack, which features the music by Dan Golding, adapted from the works of Claude Debussy’s Préludes. These LPs feature a unique “Double Groove” pressing, which creates a random playback experience each time you listen to it, mimicking the dynamic nature of the music in-game.

We love physical games and vinyl. They’re not just cherished collectibles, but also cultural and archival artifacts.

We also recognize that we only have one planet, and over the last year, we’ve been diligent in developing better, eco-focused packaging and production techniques. Think of this as the ‘Alpha’ version of our ‘better for the planet’ packaging. Change doesn’t happen overnight, so we really wanted to start the conversation as a first step toward the goal of 100% eco-friendly packaging for physical games.
