Move Over Saints Row, Deep Silver Acquires Distribution Rights for Goat Simulator

When Goat Simulator first surfaced, it was seen as something of a joke. Then that joke turned out to be real and became a hit at conferences. Finally, the game was released to surprisingly decent reviews and became something of an instant cult classic, taking the internet by storm for a few weeks. Apparently that was enough to get the attention of a major publisher, with Deep Silver announcing today that they’ve acquired the North American distribution rights for the game.

The publisher will bring the game to retail stores in mid-July, carrying a price tag of $9.99. The release includes the patch 1.1 content with new goats, the ability to ride a bike and skateboard, a new map and local four-player split screen multiplayer mode. New game modes include Capture the Flag, Racing Mode and Ragdoll Hockey.

Now they just need to pick up Rock and Cow Simulator, and they’ll have a monopoly.
