Who would have guessed that the number one trending game this past week was going to be a game about a rambunctious goose.
As of October 1st, the Untitled Goose Game stood as the second most purchased/popular game on the Nintendo Switch Eshop. (Second only to Links Awakening which has only just released)

So what is this game, and why has it become such a popular phenomenon? The Untitled Goose Game is set in a peaceful English village, and you are a “horrible” goose. This stealth puzzle game developed by House House, sets your main objective as bothering the inhabitants of the village.
The Untitled Goose Game is a simple, but very entertaining puzzle game. The hype is certainly not just based on making fun of a game about a goose. From disturbing the poor villagers, to honking at your unsuspecting victims; the game is all but guaranteed to bring you pure joy
Untitled Goose currently has a 98% approval rating from Google users as of 10/4. That is an insanely good rating. For comparison, the critically acclaimed brand new Links Awakening only has a 94% approval rating.
The gaming community isn’t the only group obsessed with the troublesome goose, there have been a insane amount of memes lately starring our untitled anti-hero.
So what will it be gamers? A puzzle solving, dungeon crawling remastered Zelda classic. Or the Untitled Goose on the loose.
