If games are art, then what is Goat Simulator? Finger painting maybe. Or an abstract treatise on the futility of perfection. Whatever the analogy, it's about to get bigger. A free update is adding a new map, new goats, wall-running and four-player split-screen. Now, Coffee Stain Studios have announced that this extra goat action will be made available on June 3rd.

Here's the feature list for update 1.1:

  • A whole new playable map, roughly the size of the old map
  • Local splitscreen multiplayer, up to four goats can play on one machine at the same time!
  • Goat wall-running and balancing on your front legs
  • You will be able to ride bicycles and skateboards, and force humans to ride you.
  • New playable goats, including Tornado Goat, Shopping Goat, Classy Goat, Repulsive Goat, and more!
  • Optimization, achievements, and all kinds of other cool jazz.

In his review, Andy called Goat Simulator a joke stretched way too thin. Whether the addition of a new map will help, or stretch its basic premise even further, it's good to see the developers bringing more to the game.
