Untitled Goose Game Will Sound Its Release Honk This September

Less than a month 'til goose-ageddon.

Untitled Goose Game, from developers House House and publishers Panic (of Firewatch and the Playdate handheld), will release through the Nintendo Switch eShop and the Epic Games Store for PC and Mac on September 20.

Australian developers House House first unveiled Untitled Goose Game—and yes, that is the name the game's sticking with—back in 2017. The first teaser trailer blew up, and the game has attracted crowds drawn in by the siren sound of the goose's honking at a number of industry events since. Untitled Goose Game's release window was pushed back a bit, most recently in February of this year via a cheeky video starring the game's goose, but now we can count the days 'til it's time to take control of this feathered fiend to ruin some villagers' quiet, peaceful days.

In June, House House announced their decision to partner with the Epic Games Store for the initial Mac and PC release at launch. In a series of tweets, the developer attests that partnering with Epic for the release will give the company "a means to make games sustainably for the foreseeable future." They have confirmed that Untitled Goose Game will come to Itch.io and Steam in the future.

At launch, Untitled Goose Game will be available for a limited-time sale price of $14.99, bumping up to $19.99 at a later date. It'll be available for the Switch in Nintendo's eShop regions for the Americas, Japan, and Europe/Australia. The game will launch with localization for 11 languages (we assume the honks will be universal).
