Goat Simulator takes the animal avatar in a cloven-hoofed direction. It’s an open-world third-person action game where you steer your goat to do as much damage as possible. What started as a joke prototype turned into this extremely silly game with a cult following. It's bizarre, silly and involves overblown violence.

Rated PEGI 16+ with occasional use of sexual expletive. Violence consists mainly of your goat character head butting other goats, people, or anything else that crosses its path. No blood or injuries are depicted to either your goat or the victims of its attackers however; there are locations in which blood can be found on the floor.
