Goat Simulator and Untitled Goose Game may have brought attention to the world of animal-based games, but Pigeon Simulator is hoping to take things to new heights. Published by tinyBuild, the off-the-wall adventure game sees you take control of a problem-causing pigeon – pooping on everything in sight and stealing donuts from unsuspecting cops.
I’m not quite sure what Pigeon Simulator’s goal is, but it seems to be cut from the same cloth as Goat Simulator. You’re given a sizable open world to explore, free to cause chaos and mayhem as you see fit. The trailer doesn’t shed much light on the game’s story, but does feature plenty of feces and a lot of donut snatching. Check it out below:
Super-sized pigeons, the ability to breathe fire, and enough power to face off against attack choppers make Pigeon Simulator one of the most bizarre games in recent memory. It’ll be interesting to see what other avian activities we can get up to when it launches on PC later this year.
“Publisher and developer tinyBuild is delighted to confirm that pigeons are back for vengeance in Pigeon Simulator,” the announcement reads. “The official reboot, reimagining, inspired by, and officially approved full-scale production of Bossa Studios’ 2019 prototype, and developed by HakJak Studios (Guts’n’Glory) and will release on PC in 2021.”
tinyBuild is well-known for the Hello Neighbor franchise, although it’s published and developed numerous other games over the years, including Graveyard Keeper and Hellpoint.
Pigeon Simulator’s developer HakJak, however, only has one other game under its belt – Guts’n’Glory. That title was nearly as chaotic as Pigeon Simulator, as it was billed as the “craziest game show on earth, where ordinary people compete in extraordinary challenges of life and death.” It saw you dodging deadly traps as you raced towards the finish line, hoping to reach it will all your limbs intact. It’s graphics were decidedly low budget, but then again that’s half the charm.
Pigeon Simulator doesn’t have a firm release date, although it’s scheduled to launch in 2021.
