I've been thinking a lot about goats lately. The Belmont Goats have been in my neighborhood almost as long as I have, and I see them nearly every day. They're adorable and creepy! Goats have oval-shaped pupils, guys, it's weird. But I'm going to miss them, because they're moving out to Lents as their field becomes home to a new development. I guess I'll have to figure out a new "That's So Portland" spot to take visitors.
Thankfully, I'll have a way to remember those wonderful, beautiful, creepy creatures thanks to this upcoming video game in which you can play a goat. It's best if you just watch.
Goat Simulator started as a game jam project and then, after an upswell of "Well, isn't this just delightful!" from the internet, it's going to be a real game that you can pre-order now. (You may want to wait to pre-order it until they actually make the game, but I'm not the boss of you, do what you want.)
