Indie developer 34BigThings along with publisher Raise Games have set the herd loose in Goat of Duty on Steam with a Free to Play weekend.
Veteran arena shooter gamer’s will quickly recognize that Goat of Duty was inspired by classics such as Quake and Unreal Tournament. Now with this game, the arena shooter has evolved into a higher lifeform, the goat.
The gates are open and it’s time to herd in new players for goat on goat bleating action. Players are encouraged to grab their friends and join in on the fast-paced total mayhem in the hazard filled arenas. Use any of the assorted weird, exotic, or plain old-fashioned weaponry to eliminate both friends and foes. From bouncing grenade balls off walls to furious headbutting, Goat of Duty has the players covered in total hilarious action.
It sounds obvious, but we want to get as many people playing Goat of Duty as we can, and a free weekend on Steam is the ideal way to bring in fresh – and rather fluffy – meat, as it were. What’s more, we want to make sure those free players feel like they can jump into play longterm for the best price possible, and so the 40% sale enables us to deliver value for all those players who charge through our gates this weekend.Ivano Zanchetta, Game Director
