Goat Race!

SpeedRunsLive is hosting a live race of Escape Goat 2! Join in the fun, as a participant or devoted fan, on Saturday, April 26th, starting at 11AM Pacific/2PM Eastern (19:00 GMT). This is for “any%” so you don’t need to rescue more than 7 sheep… unless you really want to rub it in the nose of the competition.

Nice time from Steam user murlakatamenka

I will be participating in the race, though depending on how many pros enter with elite strats, I don’t know how well I will fare. Maybe I should just use a debug version, remove wall clipping and make the goat fly. It doesn’t say anything in the rules about that…

Edit: Okay, so there is a rule against it. Guess I will have to just roll up my sleeves…

Top scorer gains immortality, in the form of a Steam achievement in his or her namesake. See you there!

  1. Hello again Mr. Stocker! A game jam will be starting soon on nitrome.com . The nitrome community is currently figuring out what theme we could vote for, but it would be nice to have the celebrity participants decided on.
    Also, congratulations on releasing Escape Goat 2, I think the soundtrack is, as a disc, the best of yours yet.

    Thank you for the invite–I’m not sure I will be able to participate, but I will let you know if so. Thanks for your kind words about the EG2 soundtrack :-)

  3. Long time no type, Mr. Stocker! There is an award winning game about a harmless character in a top down world that must create stationary towers in its defense called Cubetractor. It might lend some ideas, if you need them. Oh, I hope that S-3 will have players choosing different special abilities/items for summons.

    Also, when I buy E.G. 2, will you benefit more from a purchase on this website instead of Steam, and will buying here provide me with a key? Best of luck with whatever you do next, however you do it!

    I saw a video of Cubetractor, looks very interesting! As for new features in S3, it’s not completely nailed down yet. I have a lot of things I want to try. Custom equipment and abilities for the summons sounds great, and moves the game more in the RPG direction–I just have to see how things feel.

    I make a bit more if you buy direct from the Humble widget here, but Steam sales help improve my sales ranking there, so it’s really up to you!
