New zombie DLC coming for Goat Simulator

I had assumed Goat Simulator had died a death befitting a novelty game, never to be seen again, but it seems I was only half right.

On the 7th of May, the corpse will be re-animated, presumably with wildly flailing ragdoll physics, via the elixir of paid DLC. GoatZ (a name which conjures up mental images of a wholly unsavoury nature) transforms the game into a survival horror parody, with zombies and crafting.

Thats right. GoatZ is the latest DLC for Goat Simulator and it will be the only survival game on Steam that isnt in Early Access!

- Mandatory crafting system because everyone else is doing it
- Zombies that bug out. Theres a pun here about actual living bugs, but were not going to bother
- You can craft anything in the world, as long as its one of the half dozen weapons in the game
- Zombies, because this is a zombie game, remember?
- A pretty big new map with some stuff in it
- Completely realistic survival mode where you have to eat every damn five minutes to survive because Dean Hall & Garry Newman said so

Goat Simulator was perhaps the nadir of the 'x Simulator' meta-industry craze of a year ago; a craze which rapidly descended into a flood of worthless Early Access dung-piles, developed by gangs of first-time indie 'developers' who no doubt thought it was a fantastic wheeze to clog up the Steam store with their puerile, buggy dross. Not that I'm bitter about it.

GoatZ will be out on the 7th of May via Steam, costing around $5, and will require players to own the original game to play.
