What’s better than goats? Goats you can control in a weird physics-simulator, of course.

What’s better than that? A full-on massively multiplayer online version of the goat sim. Duh.

The hilarious developers at Coffee Stain Studios (Sanctum, Sanctum 2) just offered up a free patch to all current owners (via Steam, not iOS) of the game, turning a wacky game jam cult hit into an MMO with various classes, like the Tank, or Magician.

Shit just goat serious, guys. Check out the sweet trailer below.

“Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game,” write the developers on their Gamepedia page. “It was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.”

The whole thing plays like a skateboarding game, only you’re controlling a floppy goat instead of a rad boarding dude. You slam around an open-world, doing as much damage as possible and maybe getting your goat into wacky situations that no goats should really get into.

Goat Simulator was initially developed as a joke from a game jam at the developer’s studio, and has–via the magic of viral youTube videos–become somewhat of a massive hit.

You can grab the game on Steam for a reasonable $10, and you’ll get the weird MMO addition as well, which doesn’t actually seem to be multiplayer; just some hilarious skinning of the game into a fantasy world.
