SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 4 ― September release and instant hit Untitled Goose Game, in which players wreak low-stakes havoc as a bird on the loose in a genteel English village, could be coming to other platforms after launching on Nintendo Switch and PC.
The studio behind Untitled Goose Game hope that their Nintendo Switch and Windows PC hit will land on PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
Melbourne-based House House told Australia's ABC News of future plans in a recent interview.
PlayStation and Xbox editions have not been formally announced, but were mentioned as possibilities, as the team is interested in reaching “a wider audience.”
Like a non-violent Grand Theft Auto V or Hitman, Untitled Goose Game has players causing trouble in a virtual world ― but without the life-or-death consequences.
They become a goose on the loose, sneaking, waddling, flapping and honking their way around a quiet English village.
The goose has a checklist of activities to complete, which means getting into trouble with the village's residents.
Annoyed villagers will chase the bird if it snaps up something they need, but they can be outwitted with forward planning, quick reactions, or bald-faced luck.
That feedback loop turns Untitled Goose Game into a riotous puzzle of stealth and daring.
The game's playful appeal has been such that it has broken out of usual enthusiast circles, with US model Chrissy Teigen among its fans.

We're still chewing on this. It'll take a lot of design work to make a version that works good for touch controls!— Cabel (@cabel) October 1, 2019
