Of all the animals in nature's kingdom, perhaps the most misaligned is the humble pigeon. Some think this bird is mischaracterized as a vermin while others believe it entirely deserves that reputation. Either way, you'll soon be able to experience life as a pigeon thanks to Bossa Studios' upcoming Pigeon Simulator.
We don't know a huge amount about Pigeon Simulator right now. Obviously, the game will allow you to play as a pigeon. The trailer suggests that the game's pigeons might be capable of slightly more mayhem than they would be in real life. Pigeon Simulator will take place in a town called Barnardshire. By the looks of it, Barnardshire is being terrorized by a psychotic and violent pigeon epidemic. Check out the trailer below:
Pigeon Simulator looks to be a game very much in the vein of Coffee Stain Studios' Goat Simulator. The two games share the same casual disdain for physics and a general sense of animal-related mischief. You'll be able to projectile poop on people and things, drop objects from a great height, and crash merrily into windows, shattering them instantly. If none of that sells you on Pigeon Simulator then you might want to check yourself for a pulse.
We're not sure when or where you'll be able to get your claws on Pigeon Simulator. Bossa hasn't announced a release window and we don't know on which platforms you'll be able to play it. PC is a fairly safe bet; all of Bossa's previous high-profile titles including Worlds Adrift and I Am Bread has been available on PC. It would be a shame for the local multiplayer console crowd to miss out on this one. We'll know more in the coming months, so stay tuned for more info on Pigeon Simulator.
