First it was Untitled Goose Game that brought the limelight to these flightless birds in video game form. Now we can add another title into the mix: Mighty Goose.
Made by Blastmode and MP2 Games & published by Playism, Mighty Goose is a 2D run and gun shooter with pixel graphics, tons of explosions, and a goose with robot arms who can fire guns and ride Metal Slug tributes all over enemies and corpses of varying nature. Think Contra and Gunstar Heroes but with a goose and his/her farm animal friends as satellites/options/assists.
Not only do you have a ton of crazy weapons, warmachines, and upgrades, but the game is also loaded with a crunchy synth-rock and funky jazz-fusion soundtrack by Dominic Ninmark (last year’s Blazing Chrome).
Announcement trailer below. The game will be honking onto PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) in 2021.
