Untitled Goose Game memes are reaching critical mass

When the goose honks, you listen. Developer House House’s Untitled Goose Game honked its way into all of our hearts, unlocking our collective desire to just be bad, bad geese.

Untitled Goose Game passed Link’s Awakening on the Nintendo best-sellers and digital download lists for the Switch — which is impressive, given Untitled Goose Game is an indie game from a studio of four people. Everyone’s talking about Untitled Goose Game’s awful goose. “People aren’t writing about this as a piece of media,” developer Nico Disseldorp told Australia’s ABC News. “They’re writing about it as if it’s a cultural fad.”

As with any cultural moment, there are memes. Lots and lots of memes. People are imagining the goose in their favorite game series, like Hitman, Tekken 7, or Grand Theft Auto. There is fan art. T-shirts. Keycaps. And the jokes … there are so many jokes.

We’ve compiled some of the best Untitled Goose Game memes from around the internet.

And earlier this week, Twitch streamer Dylan “Rudeism” Beck — who “plays games wrong” — turned his entire body into an Untitled Goose Game controller, with a voice-controlled honk and movement programmed to his waddling feet. Now that’s dedication to the goose.

Untitled Goose Game was released on Sept. 20 for Nintendo Switch. Nothing is confirmed just yet, but developer House House hopes to bring the bad goose to console, too.
