"Untitled Goose Game" Allows You To Embrace Your Inner Destructionist

As said by the game's tagline, "It's a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose."

"Untitled Goose Game" Allows You To Embrace Your Inner Destructionist

If you follow the video game world, chances are you've heard of a new game about a goose. Yes, you read that right. A goose.

"Untitled Goose Game" is the latest release from House House, a video game company from Melbourne, Australia. You play as an adorable goose who honks, waddles around the village, and interacts with the villagers. How do you do that, you might ask? Well, simply put, you're there to ruin their day.

In each area of the village, you have a "to-do" list. The items can range from stealing an item, causing the people to make mistakes, collecting items and putting them in a designated spot, and more. A lot of the game's beauty lies in the fact that you don't necessarily have to complete the items (unless you want to access more areas of the village), but instead cause whatever chaos your avian heart desires.

To me, the game is great stress relief. You can run around without societal norms to block the way and no repercussions to face (because you are, in fact, a goose) aside from the villagers occasionally blocking your path, shooing you elsewhere, or chasing you down for the item that you stole. You gain a feeling of schadenfreude watching the people clean up your mess while you can just stand there honking at them.

The simplistic graphics are very cute and pair well with the plap-plap-plap of the goose's feet hitting the pavement as it waddles along. The music features short piano tunes that convey a sense of both innocence and mischief. The ending to the game, which I will not spoil because I highly encourage you to play or watch a playthrough, is like the cherry on top of the game's events where you find yourself saying "Ah yes, of COURSE the goose would do that."

If you're interested in checking the game out, it's available on PC, Mac, and the Nintendo Switch for $19.99. Now if you excuse me, I have some items to cross off my to-do list.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
