Only Three months After Release
In a Tweet made to the Cabel Twitter account, which can be seen below, it was announced by the game's publisher Panic and developer House House that Untitled Goose Game had sold over a million copies across all consoles. This comes just three months after the game's release for the Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Game Store in September of 2019. The game later dropped for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on December 17th. Untitled Goose Game is also part of Xbox's Games Pass program.
In Untitled Goose Game, players take on the role of the title animal and must go out your way to be a nuisance to the people of the town the game takes place in. This is accomplished by a mixture of stealth and the pushing and dragging of objects, combined with what the game's developer describes as a "dedicated honk button" which can alert the people around the goose and guide them towards any traps you may have set up. According to developers, the game was inspired by other stealth games such as the Hitman series.
Since its release, Untitled Goose Game has become something of a phenomenon, inspiring memes, and being nominated for several awards including "Best Independent Game" and "Fresh Indie Game" at The Game Awards 2019. Other notable accolades for the game include winning the "Breakthrough Award" and being nominated for the"Ultimate Game of the Year" at the Golden Joystick awards.
Also notable, was a short skit from the Game Awards 2019 that saw a crossover with the Muppets' character Beaker, who, appeared in the world of the Untitled Goose Game in a skit played at the show.
