While I do not think the game Escape Goat was directly inspired by the Chris Remo song of the same name, one can only get so many chances to link something to this song:

Back to the game at hand, Escape Goat has a relatively simple premise. You are a totally normal witchcraft practicing goat who has been imprisoned for your wizarding ways. You have to find a way out of the dungeon that imprisons you, and you meet up with a magical rat on your way out.

The game is basically a puzzle platformer, and your rat companion is utilized to get through smaller segments of the passageways. I found the game well balanced, with puzzle difficulties increasing as you progress through the game.

Escape Goat can be yours for the low price of 80 MSP.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
