No two naughty geese are quite alike, which is going to be handy with the launch of the big co-op update for Untitled Goose Game later this week.
Doubling the trouble, you’ll notice the subtle differences between the two geese visually with the new, second goose having a pinker beak and feet, as well as what’s known as a basal knob at the base of their bill (yes, I did spend the last 5 minutes looking up the correct term). This could actually be an indication of domestication, not that this will help the little village it’s about to terrorise. There’s also a new and distinctive timbre to the tone of their honk, as you can see below.
Little reminder: one week until two-player is out, along with the Steam and Itch release.https://t.co/mLLf8rWG4b

While it should probably be re-untitled as Untitled Geese Game, the update for Untitled Goose Game will be a free update to the game on 23rd September for all platforms. It’s also at this time that the game will arrive on Steam and Itch for purchase, in addition to the Epic Games Store, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.
Untitled Goose Game was one of the indie hits of last year, racking up over 1 million sales in its first few months on sale. It spawned a bunch of memes and saw geese appearing at The Game Awards, among other memeable places.
The Goose was also one of the few gaming characters to reveal their political allegiance and urged gamers to vote Labour during the 2019 general election. Unfortunately, despite his popularity the Goose’s powers were still limited when it comes to politics.
“At the end of the day – the long hard day of being a naughty little goose – Untitled Goose Game is something truly unique and special,” we said in out 9/10 review. “It’s a beautifully clean and simple puzzle game which will have you howling with delight, both when you play it through for the first time, and when you pass the controller to your partner saying, “You absolutely need to play this game where you’re a naughty little goose…”
