Untitled Goose Game has become such a phenomenon that even if you’ve never picked up a Nintendo product in your life, it’s likely infiltrated your life somehow. Developed by Australian company House House, the humble indie game is brilliant in its simplicity: you play a goose with a checklist of tasks to complete around a neighborhood. You are not popular with the townsfolk, as the majority of your chores involve stealing from them and trapping them in garages or telephone booths. You haul away their produce to have yourself a little picnic. You pose as a goose statue to trick its owner into tying a pretty bow around your neck. You honk so loudly that a child drops his glasses and blindly replaces them with a pair of knockoff Ray-Bans that you, of course, stole.
It’s hilarious, challenging, and, thanks to its pastel color scheme, strangely relaxing. Gamers are so into it that the title has surpassed hugely popular games like The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and Super Mario Maker 2 to make it to the top of Nintendo Switch’s bestseller list. To play it is to love it, and to love it is to apparently create fan art, memes, and poetry about it. Ahead, I’ve rounded up a selection of the greatest goose-centric tweets, Instagrams, and Reddit posts I’ve come across. Go ahead and grab your grocery basket, we’re going shopping (for memes).
